Early prognostications have the Buffalo BIils resuming their familiar place in the NFL's basement in 2013.

'Bills/Jets, WIN!' photo (c) 2012, Nick Quaranto - license: released its initial NFL power rankings for next season Tuesday. The Bills came in at No. 25, with the writers questioning the Bills' manpower:

"The K-Gun offense is all the rage in Buffalo. It's being resurrected at the rate of hobbits, nerd-turned-cool guy commercials and coaches reportedly throwing Super Bowls. But here's the problem with head coach Doug Marrone's master plan: Who's gonna throw the ball, i.e., run the offense? Ryan Fitzpatrick? OK. Where's Andre Reed, James Lofton and Keith McKeller (whom the offense was named after)? Does Buffalo have the personnel? If the answer in the minds of Bills fans is yes, that means they're only worried about new offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett's lack of experience. I don't blame them. If Buffalo is to go up-tempo, it has to be all in, or the fast-track approach likely won't work. "

Most of the AFC East is actually rated near the bottom of the league. Miami comes in at No. 22, while the Jets are No. 26. Only the Patriots, at No. 3, are given any trace of respect.

The two Super Bowl participants are No. 1 (Baltimore) and 2 (San Francisco). The Raiders bring up the rear at No. 32.
