Buffalo Bills face questions despite 5-1 start

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills might be off to their best start in 11 years and sit second in the overall AFC standings, trailing only New England.

What's difficult to judge is how good these 5-1 Bills really are based on their considerably soft opening schedule - four of their first six opponents currently have two or fewer wins. Then there's how inconsistent they were in requiring a fourth-quarter comeback to beat the winless Miami Dolphins 31-21.

It was a game Sunday in which Buffalo's defense allowed a season-high 21 points to an opponent that had been outscored 180-42 over its first five games. And Buffalo's offense gained a season-low 305 yards against a defense allowing a league-worst average 440 yards, and missing its top lineman after Christian Wilkins was ejected on the second play from scrimmage.
