Each of these teams has been able to reverse the stigma of a losing 2010 season, and turn their fortunes around in relatively short order.
The Bills are the one team from the group that still isn't that well known, outside of the confines of Western New York and Toronto, Canada.

So, we were wondering, just how good are the Buffalo Bills in 2011? Can they break their 11-year absence from the playoffs? If they reach the playoffs, how far can they go? You would think that the teams to qualify for the AFC playoffs are those teams with a winning record right now.
