Buffalo Bills back on top of AFC East with Week 2 win

It’s early in the season, we know. The Buffalo Bills went 26 years between division championships, so just BACK OFF!

With that said, Sunday’s win over the Miami Dolphins propelled the Bills to the top spot in the AFC East. The Bills and Dolphins are tied with the New England Patriots at 1-1, but Buffalo now owns the tiebreaker in AFC East record (1-0 to 1-1). Miami has the head-to-head tiebreaker over New England right now while Buffalo has a head-to-head tiebreaker over Miami. The New York Jets are 0-2 and a hot mess.

With games against struggling teams over the next two weeks and solid opponents on Miami’s schedule during the stretch, Buffalo shouldn’t relinquish the mantle for several weeks, if they do at all in 2021. The Patriots play two tough opponents over the next two weeks, as well.

Buffalo clinched the division with one game left to play in 2021 for their first AFC East crown since 1995.
