Throughout the 2022 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.
Below you will find a Week 1 roundup for the Buffalo Bills in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

Quarterback Josh Allen isn't going anywhere, and for the first time in his NFL career, he'll be working with a new offensive coordinator -- Dorsey, his former quarterbacks coach. New York Giants coach Brian Daboll set a high bar as Bills offensive coordinator, both in his relationship with Allen and on-the-field success. If Buffalo's offense has major missteps or playcalling hiccups, the pressure will be on the first-time coordinator, especially with expectations so high for the Bills this year.

The bad news: Tre'Davious White missing at least the first four games of the season leaves Buffalo with an unpredictable cornerback group. Aside from nickelback Taron Johnson, the Bills are counting on third-year player Dane Jackson (eight career starts) and rookies Kaiir Elam and Christian Benford. There's also no guarantee White will be his usual self right away whenever he returns from the ACL tear he suffered last November.
Nugget to remember: According to Vegas, the Bills have the shortest odds of winning the Super Bowl at +600. Among the last 10 preseason Super Bowl favorites, two went on to hoist the Lombardi trophy (the 2016 and 2018 Patriots), two lost in the divisional round, two lost in the conference championship and four lost in the Super Bowl. As if Bills fans weren't already prepared for heartbreak.
Meanwhile, only one of the past 10 Super Bowl winners (the 2017 Eagles) came from outside the top six preseason Super Bowl favorites. Good news for the Bills, Buccaneers, Chiefs, Rams, Packers and Chargers.
