If you are a Buffalo Bills fan, you have to be excited! We haven’t had a winning team since 1998, but this year we are already 8-6… with a fairly good shot at 10-6! Wow!
Unfortunately, they could still very well miss the playoffs!
There are five teams fighting for the last 2 playoff spots. 4 division winners get a spot, and 2 teams get into the playoffs as a “wild card”. New England has clinched our division, and Pittsburgh theirs. Indianapolis and San Diego have clinched theirs as well. Then you have the Jets (10-4), Ravens (8-6), Jaguars (8-6), Broncos (8-6) & the Bills (8-6). Unfortuately, we lost to all of those teams, and the only team we could end up tied with, but ahead by virtue of a tie-breaker would be the Jets. So we need to win both of our last two games, and they would need to LOSE both. Even then, at least two of the other teams would have to lose at least one game.
SO, it’s certainly not certain… but it’s been fun anyway! They have won 5 in a row, and 7 of their last 8. (The one loss was in New England.) They have scored over 33 points in the 5 wins. And a bunch of points have come from “trick” plays and special teams plays.
They’re just FUN! 🙂
So… watch out NFL… here come the Bills!
