The Buffalo Bills were predicted to have the league's stingiest defense by Elliot Harrison

Bills fans would be thrilled if Elliot Harrison's prediction came to fruition.

Entering 2016, the biggest question mark surrounding the Buffalo Bills is how their defense will fare in 2016. Last year's unit didn't come close to meeting Rex Ryan's lofty expectations and in his second year the performance of the defense will go a long way in determining whether or not Buffalo can contend for a playoff spot.

Although no one knows what the defense will look like in 2016, NFL.com's Elliot Harrison boldly predicted that Buffalo's defense will have quite the season. Harrison's prediction for the Bills is that the defense will finish the 2016 season allowing the fewest points in the league.

Buffalo Bills: Rex Ryan's team ends Seattle's run as the NFL's stingiest scoring defense.

Rex Ryan says the Bills won the offseason. I was under the impression that everyone gets a participation trophy (usually wood with a gold-colored foil plate that says "participant") for the offseason. I am OK with saying Buffalo won the draft, however. The Bills picked up two pass rushers and an inside linebacker in Reggie Ragland who is capable of starting Week 1. Throw in an under-the-radar corner in sixth-round pick Kevon Seymour -- as well as the departure of the disgruntled Mario Williams -- and voila: You have a retooled defense. The Seahawks have led the league in points allowed four consecutive years, a record in the modern era. It has to end some time. That Tom Brady will be suspended for the Week 4 trip to New England certainly helps the cause.
