Buffalo Bills End of Season Power Rankings

Buffalo finished as high as 13th on one power rankings list.

By finishing 8-8, the Buffalo Bills had back-to-back non-losing seasons for the first time since 1999-2000. It’s not a playoff berth but it’s an encouraging sign that the Bills are headed in the right direction. After defeating the Jets 22-17, here’s a look at where the Bills sit at the end of the 2015 regular season on various power rankings.

Sixteen seasons without a playoff berth is tough to swallow. But on the bright side, the Bills finished with a non-losing record for the second straight year, the first time that has happened since 1999-2000.

The good news from this season is they likely found their quarterback in Tyrod Taylor.

So .500 ball was disappointing for a team that hoped to improve on its 9-7 mark from 2014. But beating the Jets twice, with the latter win bouncing Gang Green from the playoffs? Not bad. Tyrod Taylor came up big, as did the much-maligned defense. And let's get real here: Rex Ryan has taken much of the heat for that side of the ball's nosedive this season. But we should also not forget that it was his decision to go with Taylor. In that realm, the 2015 Bills had more upside than the previous year's team -- despite the worse record -- because of the Taylor gamble. Defense can win championships, but not with a lousy QB.
