The Buffalo Bills defense has been getting zero respect this preseason. After last season, they probably do not deserve any.
The Bills ranked 32nd in the league in run defense last season, and anyone who watched their defense knows the pass defense was only ranked high in yardage because nobody was throwing on them. Why throw against a team who you can run for 250 yards on?
