Coming off of their bye week, the Buffalo Bills got back into the win column over the weekend with a 26-11 victory over the Miami Dolphins. Despite the win, Buffalo has fallen from No. 5 to No. 6 in the latest ESPN NFL Power Rankings.

What's even more disrespectful is that the Bills are No. 6 even though they're the +500 favorites to win Super Bowl 56, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Things get even more disrespectful when you realize that they're not even the highest-ranked AFC team. That honor goes to the Los Angeles Chargers (No. 3), who have a worse record than the 5-2 Bills at 4-3.

Even though the Bills have their doubters, they've been dominant on both sides of the ball this season. Buffalo leads the league in both points for (32.7) and points allowed (15.6) heading into Week 9.

Fourth-year quarterback Josh Allen has been living up to his massive extension so far, recording 1,972 passing yards and 17 touchdowns to 3 interceptions after seven games. It certainly helps that Stefon Diggs, Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley each have more than 400 receiving yards apiece.

The Bills will have a chance to change their doubters' minds when they visit the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Buffalo is currently listed as the 14.5-point favorite with -114 odds to cover the spread, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
