The Buffalo Bills looked every bit like the best team in football in Thursday's 2022 NFL Kickoff Game. After trouncing the Los Angeles Rams 31-10, the Super Bowl favorites are given an even better chance to win the championship.

The Bills entered the season with +600 Super Bowl odds. Before any other Week 1 game is played, Buffalo's odds have already improved to +500 at FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are second in the league with +750 odds to win the Super Bowl. The Kansas City Chiefs are third overall with +1000 odds, making Buffalo the overwhelming favorite in the AFC. The Rams are tied for fifth at +1400.

Buffalo managed to exceed lofty expectations by dominating the reigning Super Bowl champs on the road. The Bills never trailed and outscored the Rams 21-0 in the second half. Buffalo outgained Los Angeles by 170 yards.

The Bills had the No. 1 ranked defense in the 2021 season, and the unit was even more impressive against one of the league's most explosive offenses. Matthew Stafford threw three interceptions and was sacked seven times. Free-agent addition Von Miller paid immediate dividends, taking down Stafford twice and adding another tackle for a loss.

Offensively, Buffalo was close to unstoppable. Josh Allen went 26-of-31 for 297 yards and three touchdown passes. The quarterback was picked off twice, though one interception was the result of a dropped pass that wasn't his fault.

Allen ran the ball 10 times for 56 yards and a score. Allen's ability to run and pass makes him virtually impossible to defend when he's playing his best football.

Allen started the season as the NFL MVP favorite with +700 odds at FanDuel Sportsbook. Those odds have moved all the way to +450, following Allen's outstanding Week 1 performance. Justin Herbert, Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady all have +900 odds as distant second favorites for the award.

Six Bills' players had multiple receptions Thursday. Stefon Diggs caught eight passes for 122 yards. Gabe Davis finished with 88 receiving yards and a touchdown.

Buffalo's offense picked up right where it left off last season. The Bills scored 83 points in two playoff games, ultimately losing an overtime thriller to the Chiefs in the divisional round. Allen put up historic numbers, throwing for at least four touchdowns, 300 yards and a passer rating of at least 136.0 in back-to-back postseason games.

The Bills are -250 favorites to win their third straight AFC East title.
