After commenting on Dallas last time, now I’m going for Buffalo, a team that for many analysts may be the favorite of the entire League for next season, and there are plenty of reasons, subject to it passing in the draft, it currently has a practically full and high octane. This team has suffered from drought for years, has lost 4 Super Bowls and has never been a champion, but now its face has changed substantially since the hiring of coach Sean McDermott in January 2017; in the first year he led the team to its first playoff appearance since 1999, which until then was the record for the longest period without a team from the major US sports leagues reaching that stage. For 2019, McDermott was a candidate for NFL Coach of the Year, finishing with a winning record of 10-6.
Since then everything has been uphill for this franchise that closed an excellent campaign in 2021, seeing itself as the rival to beat that it currently is. McDermott has been in charge with his board of putting together a robust balance in each unit of the team, although he is originally a defensive coach, he seems an expert in front with hiring and drafteos stars like Stefon Diggs, Josh Allen, Tre’Davious White, Dion Dawkins and Matt Milano, but he has also managed to maintain and improve the performance of veterans such as the cases of Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde or failing that, letting go of stars like John Brown and LeSean McCoy. This year, in the free-agent harvest, he signed Jamieson Crowder, OJ Howard, Rodger Saffold, DaQuan Jones and Duke Johnson and the draft is missing.
So, as far as we can see at the moment, it’s a team that finished in the first places and is getting stronger than others, so we can’t lower it from being a favorite to get to the Super Bowl and hopefully win its first championship.
In the LFA there was a week of bye in general, but they took the opportunity to hold the meeting between Gallos Negros de Querétaro and Reyes de Jalisco, which had been suspended in previous days, on paper the Gallos appeared as favorites, but not even with the hometown they could beat Their Majesties Tapatias, who adjusted their defense again and thus they snatched the game from the Queretanos in what was a close contest that ended with a final score of 19-12 in favor of the visitors. The performance of RB Majid Esparza de Reyes stood out, who was dispatched with 2 TD’s and was the definitive actor for the victory of his team.
This victory fills Reyes with air, who came from consecutive defeats and puts them in fifth position in the table, with their last regular match still to be played at home against Regios Fundidores, a tough rival who is among the favorites to win the championship; However that game ends, for Reyes to define wild cards, he will have to visit the Raptors of the State of Mexico. For its part, Gallos has yet to visit the same Raptors in their last game of the season facing the playoffs. It’s the final stretch of the LFA and the best is coming!
And from there… To what follows.
