In the last few seasons, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning have been far and away the best quarterbacks in the NFL. They’ve each had record-breaking success and have been the examples all other NFL quarterbacks aspired to be. However in 2008, the quarterback landscape changed.

The Buffalo Bills have surprised almost every NFL league expert by being one of the best teams in the NFL. Offensively, Trent Edwards is a very good game manager, while Marshawn Lynch is one of the best young running backs in the league. Buffalo’s defense is good and is seemingly improving on a weekly basis.
