Below you will find a Week 15 roundup for the Bills in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 3

Like a few other teams below, the Bills traded their first-round pick for a veteran and are reaping the benefits. Stefon Diggs was a monster in the Bills' win over the Steelers, catching 10 balls for 130 yards and a touchdown. He leads the league in receptions (100), is third in receiving yards (1,167) and has consistently shown a competitive juice that has embodied the Bills' identity. Buffalo has won six of seven and looks like the biggest threat to the Chiefs in the AFC.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 3

Josh Allen is proving to a lot of people he's now a star quarterback. This team is legit and can be a Super Bowl team.

USA Today -- Rank: 4

What a year from WR Stefon Diggs, who leads league with 100 grabs and will set Buffalo record for one season -- he currently shares it with Eric Moulds -- with his next reception.

ESPN -- Rank: 3

The Bills' offense is a complete turnaround from last season's anemic unit, as Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs have combined to form one of the most potent QB-WR duos in the NFL. Although their defense began the season hemorrhaging yards, it has regained its 2018 and 2019 form over the past few weeks. Mix in a special-teams unit that features the league's most efficient returner in Andre Roberts, and you've got a team ready to make a deep playoff run. -- Marcel Louis-Jacques -- Rank: 4

The Bills are peaking at the right time. Six days after Josh Allen played like a superstar in a convincing victory over the 49ers, the Bills put together their most complete game of the season to date in an impressive 26-15 win over the Steelers. The two teams danced around each other like a pair of heavyweights in the early going, but once Buffalo landed the first big overhand right -- a pick-six by Taron Johnson -- the much-anticipated showdown between two AFC favorites turned into a beatdown by the pugilists from Western New York. Allen was excellent again, Stefon Diggs couldn't be covered, and the revitalized Buffalo defense put the clamps on Pittsburgh's short passing game. At 10-3, the Bills are on the verge of their first AFC East title since 1995. This team is capable of winning much more than its division.
