I know. You've probably heard enough about the Buffalo Bills since pulling off the “upset” in Week 3 against the New England Patriots.
Unless, of course, you live in Western New York like I do.
Not too long ago, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Fred Jackson, and Stevie Johnson were three players that you may not have paid much attention to. Hell, you might not have even known their names.
Well, now you do.
All three players currently rank in the Top 10 at their positions for touchdowns, while Jackson is currently tied with Oakland's Darren McFadden for most yards per carry.
The success of the Buffalo Bills can be contributed to an improved offensive line, a young group of skilled receivers, a strengthened defense, and finally finding a quarterback.
What is often overlooked is probably the most important part of the whole equation.
Since Chan Gailey arrived as head coach in Buffalo, the Bills have instilled the kind of creativity on offense that can win ball games—think Sean Payton in New Orleans.
Gailey likes to mix up the deception on offense, and the components the Bills have in place allow for just that.
Jackson is an elite blocker that has had no problem getting out in front in a fullback-type situation for speedy backup C.J. Spiller, and the acquisition of Brad Smith from the Jets has allowed Gailey to run a few different wildcat formations.
Despite the loss of receiver/returner Roscoe Parrish, the Bills sit at 3-0, alone atop the AFC East.
I will be the first to admit that I didn't think this would be a fun offense to watch anytime soon. Buffalo can thank Gailey for a return to relevance.
