Below you will find a post-Super Bowl 56 roundup for the Bills in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 2

Offseason in three or fewer words: Improve problem areas

There will be no dramatic changes for the Bills this offseason, with much of the roster set to return and the team hiring from within to replace offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, who accepted a head-coach gig with the Giants. Instead, the focus needs to be on adding to key areas like cornerback and getting more speed at receiver. Continuing to support quarterback Josh Allen in a variety of ways is important, while getting creative with some cap moves to add to the roster. -- Alaina Getzenberg -- Rank: 3

The sting of a heartbreaking defeat to the Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Playoffs lives on in Western New York, but the future remains bright for the AFC East champions. Josh Allen will return in September as a superstar quarterback operating at the height of his powers, and the Bills hope promoting from within will help mitigate the loss of offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, who headed south to take a big chair with the Giants. Continuing to add pieces around Allen would be wise, though the Bills will have to get creative, with less than $5 million in projected available cap space.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 3

They are built to contend consistently for the next decade with Josh Allen playing quarterback. Losing offensive coordinator Brian Daboll could hurt.

USA Today -- Rank: 4

If you boil it all down to their inability to beat Kansas City, then it doesn't appear there's much Buffalo needs to work on ... other than end-of-game scenarios and clock management.

The Athletic -- Rank: 4

The Bills suffered a devastating overtime loss to the Chiefs in the divisional round of the playoffs, and we can't help but wonder what might have been had the Bills won that coin flip. Would they have won the AFC title? Would they have beaten the Rams in the Super Bowl? In the weeks since, the Bills have promoted quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey to offensive coordinator to replace Brian Daboll, who left to become Giants head coach. But the most important piece, quarterback Josh Allen, remains in place as the Bills look for a Super Bowl run next season.
