They’re questions that Buffalo fans have pondered for decades:

When the Bills ultimately win the Super Bowl, what route will the team’s celebratory parade take? Will the City of Buffalo implode when the entire population of Western New York (and then some) gathers in front of City Hall to celebrate the region’s first championship in over 50 years?

According to CBS Sports, these questions may be answered sooner rather than later.

In a recent article analyzing the strength of each NFL team’s 2019 schedule, the outlet described Buffalo as a sleeper-team with a favorable slate of games. Per CBS, the Bills have the league’s second-easiest path to Super Bowl 54.

“If you’re thinking about making the Bills a dark-horse playoff pick, this might be the year to do it, and that’s mainly because they have one of the easiest schedules in the NFL this season, according to our formula,” the outlet wrote. “Of course, if they’re going to make the playoffs, they better have a spot wrapped up by Week 13, because starting with Thanksgiving, they have a brutal four-game stretch that includes games against the Cowboys (Away), Ravens, Steelers (away) and Patriots (Away).

“On second thought, maybe the Bills shouldn’t be your dark-horse playoff pick this year.”

If you want to be the best, you need to win against the best. So, yes, an easier schedule could help make the Bills win more games, and since the team has better players this year too, but I look forward to the Bills playing those tougher teams at the end. Separates the pretenders from the real contenders.

+8000 for the Bills winning the Super Bowl. Wouldn't hurt to play a little something on that.

I put down a parlay on the Bills and Sabres both winning it all this year.  $4 bet would pay about $24000

That's all.  There are no style points awarded on who you beat. Just beat who you play.

No worse than a lottery ticket.

This is often wildly overstated. 

 

If you can run a favorable schedule you could be two home wins away from the super bowl come January. The pats have benefited from a bad afc east for 20 years here

For both to win that seems way worse than the lotto

Not sure how many times this is repeated but for some reason it's necessary every year..... strength of schedule BEFORE THE SEASON MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

 

Teams that were good last year may suck this year, and teams that were bad last year may be good this year. We just don't know yet.

Nobody knows how "easy" the schedule is...until after the season ends.

My grays sports almanac 2000-2050 begs to differ.
