BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills will play in the NFL's season opener, traveling to play the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams on Sept. 8. But first, they head back to Rochester for training camp on the back of a second straight AFC East title and playoff loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. This year, all the expectations in the world are on Buffalo. The team has been Super Bowl favorites throughout the offseason (+650 per Caesars Sportsbook) and only got stronger by adding one of the best pass-rushers in NFL history to the roster in Von Miller.

A big season awaits the Bills with one of the NFL's most complete rosters.

Here's a 53-man roster projection:

QUARTERBACK (2): Josh Allen, Case Keenum

This is the easiest position to predict on the roster. Allen will start his fifth season having developed into one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, while Case Keenum will take over Mitch Trubisky's role as Allen's backup. The other quarterback on the roster, Matt Barkley, is likely headed for the practice squad.
