Take a look to see where the Bills landed on various platforms after falling to 2-2 on the season.

After falling to 2-2 on the season, the Buffalo Bills fell down in the power rankings. Here's a look at where the team stands on various platforms heading into Week 5.

A 24-10 loss to the New York Giants dropped the Buffalo Bills across the board in multiple power rankings. Buffalo has a chance to move back into the top 10 this weekend when they go on the road and play the Tennessee Titans. Despite multiple injuries on the offensive side of the ball, the Bills have a great shot of picking up their third win of the season.

The Bills lost to the Giants 24-10. There were too many (17) penalties, mistakes and costly missed tackles for Rex Ryan’s squad. The Bills really struggled on offense and couldn’t generate much of anything, especially early.

The Bills have been called for 58 penalties in four games this season, 12 more than any other team. Those penalties have amounted to 428 yards lost, 92 more than the next-highest team.

At 2-2, who are they? They have been way too inconsistent at the start of this season.

The Bills play with passion -- as head coach Rex Ryan likes to say -- but this style is resulting in too many unnecessary penalties. In the Bills’ two losses, opposing teams used the same game plan -- quick passing to negate the Bills’ pass rush and a defensive game plan that forces Tyrod Taylor to make plays down the field.

Mistakes ruled the day in Buffalo. The score might have been 24-10, but this was one of those games Bills fans will look back on as a lost opportunity. Especially considering the loss to the Giants was at home. That's not to say the Giants didn't earn the win, but when you suffer through 17 penalties, go 0 for 3 in the red zone and turn the football over twice, you're suffering abuse at your own hands. Major kudos to the Bills mafia, who solved our Power Rankings Trivia question last week (answer: Joe Cribbs) in droves, to the point that we couldn't respond to every answer.

What's Good?: The Buffalo Bills cornerbacks are certainly living up to their billing. This past weekend in the contest against the New York Giants proved to be the perfect example. Stephon Gilmore and Ronald Darby held the Giants' talented outside receivers, Odell Beckham Jr. and Rueben Randle, to a combined total of five catches for 69 yards. However, the Bills were gashed by slot receiver Dwayne Harris and running back Rashad Jennings out of the backfield for 105 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Right now, Buffalo's starting outside cornerbacks are playing as well as any duo in the league.

 

What's Bad?: Running back depth is quickly becoming a major issue in Buffalo. LeSean McCoy continues to deal with an injured hamstring. Rookie Karlos Williams is currently in the team's concussion protocol. And the organization signed Daniel "Boom" Herron Tuesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Boobie Dixon and Cierre Wood might be the Bills top options for Sunday's contest against the Tennessee Titans.
