The Buffalo Bills have been a team known for their stout defense for the past decade. This is going to change. The Bills do not get enough respect on the offensive side of the ball. Josh Allen and their new WR Stefon Diggs get praise, but no one else seems to get the recognition they deserve.
Devin Singletary turned just 151 touches into 775 yards. That’s 5th among running backs and 7th in the NFL. He did have more fumbles then rushing touchdowns, but the addition of Zack Moss should help with goal line situations. Devin Singletary also had 194 yards and two touchdowns through the air. All of these numbers came in 12 appearances and 8 starts.
John Brown has been underrated all year long, as he played a role that was not supposed to get him 1,060 yard and six touchdowns. Smokey was a huge piece in why Josh Allen took the leap that he did. Also, don’t forget his two passing touchdowns.
Cole Beasley does get some praise, but only from NFC East rooters. He played very well in the slot picking up 778 yards and six touchdowns, and he only started in 10 games this year. There is not a doubt in my mind that in 16 games he would crack four digits. Watch out for this receiving core next year.
The offensive line received a long deserved makeover in the 2019 offseason. Buffalo picked up the leader of the Chiefs O-line in center Mitch Morse, and added left guard Quinton Spain from the Titans. They brought in tackle Ty Nskehe over from Washington, and also selected Cody Ford in the 2019 draft. Morse and Spain alone helped turn Josh Allen in to a better passer. The latter saw a 6% pass completion improvement, while also doubling his passing touchdowns on three less interceptions.
The Bills are going to be a force to be reckoned with in the future. Josh Allen just needs to take one more step, but with this supporting cast he can fo that sure do it. Only time will tell.
