BILLS INTANGIBLES: The Bills thrilled their loyal home fans with a surprise trip to the playoffs in 2017, at the Ravens’ expense. But many analysts expect them to plummet back to the bottom of the standings this season, with the largely unproven Peterman at quarterback and rookie Josh Allen waiting in the wings. Even with Taylor leading the offense last season, Buffalo went 3-5 on the road. Coach Sean McDermott, who worked with Harbaugh on the Philadelphia Eagles staff, proved a capable leader in his first year. And he still has plenty of talent to work with on the defensive side. So no one should expect the Bills to roll over.
