As we move forward toward the new 2021 NFL season, two AFC East teams look to renew a decades-old rivalry.

Some of you might be too young to remember those glory days of the late ’80s/early ’90s of the  Miami Dolphins vs the Buffalo Bills.  With two of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game. Jim Kelly and Dan Marino. Historic match-ups to last-minute shoot-outs.

After two decades of getting dominated by QB Tom Brady (who has moved on to the Tamp Bay Buccaneers) and the New England Patriots. The Buffalo Bills took control of the AFC East last season behind quarterback Josh Allen and head coach Sean McDermott and came up one game shy of landing them in the Super Bowl.

The Bills are looking to make it back to the AFC Championship game next season.  To help them get there, they signed free agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to add some depth. Sanders should complement all-pro receiver, Stefon Diggs. Diggs, as you will remember, joined the team last season and helped the Bills get to the AFC Championship game.  On the defensive side of the ball, the Bills drafted pass rusher Gregory Rousseau out of the University of Miami. Rousseau is athletic, explosive, and can really cause problems for opposing offensive linemen.  Which the Bills will look to do with high-powered offenses like the defending AFC Champions Kansas City Chiefs.
