NFL analyst Herm Edwards has jumped onto the Buffalo Bills bandwagon.

During a recent ESPN segment, analysts were asked to pick five teams which would make the playoffs this upcoming season. The five teams chosen had to be teams which missed the play-offs last season.

Edwards said the Buffalo Bills had a strong chance of claiming the wild card and could finish ahead of the New York Jets.

“They will battle the Jets in my opinion as a Wild Card team in this division,” Edwards said. “I think New England is still good enough to win the division. I think the Bills have a chance with their schedule to win nine games and maybe get into the playoffs.”

// > Edwards said Buffalo Bills offense could be the difference maker. “I think the Bills have an edge offensively in this sense, they’ve been together, the Jets have a new coordinator and a new system,” Edwards said. “They (Jets) want to ground and pound and that’s fine, but you still have to be able to throw the football. The Bills can throw the ball. They put you in space, they run a lot of shotgun spread offense and have skill players that can catch and run. Their offense is a little ahead of the Jets offense right now.” The addition of talented players to the Buffalo Bills’ roster also has Edwards excited. “This year in the offseason they did a great job of acquiring free agents,” said Edwards of Buffalo. “I’m talking about Mario Williams and Mark Anderson. That will allow them to get to the quarterback.” *** Check out buffalobills101.com starting Monday afternoon for a three-part series on Bills legend Cookie Gilchrist and the New York City man who would surprisingly become his last, best friend.
