Bills rank 31st in overall special-teams performance for 2018

The Buffalo Bills finished 31st in the NFL in overall special-teams performance in 2018.

That comes as no surprise, given the struggles of the team in the kicking game during the season and the firing of special-teams coordinator Danny Crossman two weeks ago.

The ranking is compiled annually by NFL columnist Rick Gosselin, now of the Talk of Fame network, using 22 different kicking-game categories and assigning points according to their standing – one for best, 32 for worst.

The New York Jets compiled 231 points to finish first in 2018, 11 ½ points better than the runner-up New Orleans Saints.

Buffalo finished just ahead of last-place Green Bay.

The Bills dropped to 31st from seventh in 2017.
