Following a season in which the Bills went 6-10 and ended the year in third place in the AFC East. Despite that, they played well late in the year, winning two of their last three to give fans hope for 2019.
Now that the calendar has turned to July, the start of training camp is closing in and things are ramping up for the franchise to get ready for 2019.
Today we take a quick look at three questions about this team as they get set to embark on what they hope will be a solid season with maybe a trip to the playoffs.
1. Josh Allen’s Progression
Last season Allen got to start 11 games, giving the franchise something to cheer about as he went 5-6 in those 11 games.
He threw for 10 scores with 12 picks, and also rushed for 631 yards and eight touchdowns. It’s important for the team to get him time to throw and improve.
2. A Better Run Game
Last year LeSean McCoy rushed for 514 yards with three scores, Chris Ivory 385 yards and a score, and Allen 631 yards and eight touchdowns.
The run game just never got established, and this season it would be nice for the club to commit more to the run game and that will also take pressure off Allen to have to throw the ball downfield early and often.
3. A Better Defensive Start
The defense was bombed in its first two games of 2018, allowing 78 points in two games to the Ravens and Chargers, and it felt like it was going to be a long season.
The defense eventually found itself a bit, but it would very much be nice not to get so far behind early in games, and for the D to come through with some big plays.
It remains to be seen if any of these young defenders step up, but they had better to avoid a slow start.
