2021 NFL Power Rankings: Buffalo Bills

Throughout the 2021 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Buffalo Bills rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a Week 3 roundup for the Bills in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 5

Fantasy surprise: RB Devin Singletary

The Bills' offense finished 20th in rushing yards per game in 2020 (107.7). The offense becoming more balanced this season would be big for the team going forward. Thus far, Singletary has shown that he is up to the task. While his 46-yard touchdown run versus the Dolphins was his first score of the year, he is already one TD away from matching his career high in rushing scores for a season. Singletary also is averaging 6.42 yards per carry -- fourth most among league running backs. He has stepped into the role of starting running back and should continue to have significant opportunities. -- Alaina Getzenberg

NFL.com -- Rank: 5

The Bills took out a week of frustration on the poor Dolphins. Devin Singletary and Zack Moss combined for three touchdowns, and the Buffalo defense was ruthlessly effective in a 35-0 win in Miami. The Bills sacked Tua Tagovailoa twice in the game's opening possession, then knocked the QB out of the game with another crunching hit on Miami's second series. The opening display of ferocity set the tone for a one-sided affair that reaffirmed Buffalo's standing as a conference superpower while prompting a reexamination of where the Dolphins actually belong in the AFC pecking order. The Bills remain the class of the AFC East: Come correct or prepare to be embarrassed.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 6

They looked like the Bills we expected to see this season in beating up Miami. The passing game still looked a little disjointed at times. That has to be better.

USA Today -- Rank: 9

QB Josh Allen has been decidedly ordinary through two games, but fact that defense and run game have been excellent should be very encouraging signs to Bills Mafia.

The Athletic -- Rank: 5

Phew. Imagine the panic and the narrative around Josh Allen if the Bills had started 0-2. A blowout win against a division rival is certainly healing. But should we be worried about Allen, regardless of the final score of that game? Yes and no. His completion percentage after two weeks is 56. That's well below his 69 percent average last season, and much more in line with his first and second seasons, when he was among the more inaccurate starting quarterbacks in the NFL. A two-game sample isn't enough to declare regression, and we want to believe that Allen will revert back to his 2020 form soon. Check back with us in a month to see if our confidence in Allen is waning.
