Last Season: 6-10, 2-4 division
Playoffs: Missed the postseason
Stat Leaders: QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (3,400 YDS, 24 TDS, 16 INTS); RB C.J Spiller (1,244 YDS, 6 TDS); WR Steve Johnson (1,046 YDS, 6 TDS); LB Nick Barnett (112 TACKLES, 2.0 SACKS)
The Buzz: The Bills are in rebuilding mode, with former Syracuse coach Doug Marrone taking over as head coach. Marrone has generally favored offenses that rely on the run to set up the pass.
As Marrone sorts out his quarterback options, Spiller will likely be a key member of the offense attack after averaging 6.0 yards per carry last season. Former FSU quarterback EJ Manuel got off to a promising start, but a preseason injury could slow him. Kevin Kolb could start early, but Manuel is the Bills' quarterback of the future.
Luck Factor: Marrone won quickly at Syracuse, but it'd take an awful lot of luck to reach the playoffs here early in his tenure at Buffalo.
