The NFL season has already begun, and we've already had one great game between the Denver Broncos. We've already had some typical Bills fan optimism to start the year, but there's plenty of reasons to believe the Bills will win their first game of the year.

Here are five reasons why the Buffalo Bills will have no trouble dispatching the Baltimore Ravens in week 1.

1. LeSean McCoy, Sammy Watkins, and Tyrod Taylor Are Healthy.

Last season, it was rare for all three of these guys to be healthy.

Tyrod missed a game against the Jaguars and struggled through a nagging injury for a significant part of the year.

LeSean McCoy missed several games with injuries, and the Bills were forced to rely on Karlos Williams and Mike Gillislee for production. And even Watkins missed three games with an injury! When all three are healthy, they form a dangerous trio that will betough for the Baltimore defense to stop.

2. The Ravens Have a Poor Pass Defense.

Last season, the Baltimore Ravens had one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL. They allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers and also ranked in the bottom of the league against opposing quarterbacks.

Without Elvis Dumervil, the Bills should be able to complete passes with ease and move the ball through the air against a weakened Baltimore defense.

3. Tyrod Will Really Want to Beat His Old Team.

Taylor spent the first four years of his career with the Baltimore Ravens, with whom he never got a chance to start thanks to the presence of Joe Flacco. Now he will be competing directly with the person who prevented him from getting a starting quarterback job for the first few years of his career. Think Tyrod doesn't want to beat the team he started with?

I'm betting that a mixture of his talent and pure will lead to a huge game for Tyrod Taylor on Sunday.

4. Ed Reed is On the Bills Coaching Staff.

Ed Reed spent a majority of his career with the Baltimore Ravens and shouldknow some of the tricks that John Harbaugh will have in store. After all, Harbaugh became a coach in 2008 and Reed played for him until 2012.

The defense has obviously changed since then, but I guess that Ed Reed will have a general idea of the style that Harbaugh likes to play. Reed also spent some time with Joe Flacco, and will likely be training Bills defenders to recognize any Flacco movementsthat wouldgive away some Ravens offensive plays.

5. The Bills Have Won Their Last Two Openers.

Last season, the Bills absolutely destroyed the Colts at home by a final score of 27-14. Tyrod Taylor looked excellent, and the Bills defense looked even better as they held Andrew Luck in check and forced him into two interceptions.

The Bills also one a close game on the road the year before that, knocking off the Chicago Bears in overtime 23-20. This game's result will be independent of the other two, but the Bills generally start the year fast with a fully healthy roster, and they should be able to pick up another win again at the start of 2016.
