Only 6 AFC teams have winning record. We must be in playoffs this year

Recommended Posts

Only 6 teams in AFC have winning record. We must be in playoffs this year.

I realize it's only start but 10 teams lost 2-3 games of 3. They are surely beatable. We have 2 wins insurance over them to stay in playoffs picture.

Only 3 teams have 3-0. Bills, Chiefs and Patriots. Good company.

The window of opportunity is most definately there, but the Bills haven't locked anything up yet.  They gotta keep winning games.

Still too early in the. Season for blanket statements. That said, it is true that even if we lose next week, we will remain a top 6 team in the AFC. But I feel we have a decent shot at sitting on top of the AFC after week 4. Standout defense, clutch qb, electric rb, rookie gronk, things looking up.

And one 2-1 team is Colts. With all due respect to Frank Reich it's hard to beleive they will clinch playoff after Luck's sudden retirement.

Have heard lots of commentary on how this doesn’t hurt them that much, kind of hard to believe The Ewing Theory applies here

The AFC is wide open. Buffalo should hit double digit wins for the first time in ages.

Good defense, good run game, game manager QB, and a weak division. Colts will be there all year.

Bills are too inconsistent to say this with confidence. Right now they remind me of the Trent Edwards Bills that started 3-0 or 4-0.

It’s a long season.  I agree the Bills are setting themselves up well but don’t get ahead of yourself.  Besides, we must knock NE* off their throne first if we want to be seen as a legitimate team.

 I am not sure we will beat them this week. They are looking scary this season. And our new offensive players need some time to play together. We'll dethrone them in playoffs.

The Bills' future this season really depends on how their culture and process will be able to cope with a demoralizing loss the Pats. If they win, they will be equally tested on the coping with success front.

Cool your jets.

 

Since 1990 73.8% of teams that started the season 3-0 reached the playoffs

 

Twice Buffalo was part of the 26.2%

To borrow and slightly reword a phrase from a Bills player.  "3-0 ain't $#&! "

 

Stay focused week to week, stay relatively healthy and continue to progress and they'll get there.

At this point in the season we look equally like a 12-4 team and a 6-10 team. Too early to say either way.

Titans and Eagles games will say a lot. They should beat a below average Titans team on the road and they should battle the Eagles to a close game. Win one of those two and I think they will make it. 

I fear this week will be another game that the Bills get overhyped and do too much. Bills teams have a history of making this game more than it is and getting blown out early.  If they can get through the first quarter tied or only down a score they will be competitive throughout the game. Most worried about the start of the game and early in the third quarter.

I'm calling it right now:

 

There is NO CHANCE the Bills finish at 6-10.

 

They have two games remaining against Miami, one against the Jets at home, the Redskins as well. That's 4 wins and i don't really care if people think that's unrealistic because it isn't.

Tennessee aint looking too hot either, nor is Denver, and the love lust is fading for CLE 

 

Will Big Ben even return to play in December? 

 

 

EDIT -  Big Benjavitis  is done.  Circle another possible win

I like the Bills to be the #5 seed and head to Texans in playoffs.  Then Chiefs.  Then Pats.  Then Cowboys.  Then Parade in Buffalo.

This is the year/schedule if the Bills ever want to be in a playoff spot that's not "in the hunt" column.

This week will tell us a lot about this team. The Patriots are the first real team we face. Otherwise our opponents are a combined 1-8, 0-8 if you discount the 1 victory as it was led by Daniel Jones and not Eli Manning. If they go out and handle business against the Patriots then it’s time to start planning the parade.

Personally, I see Knox more as a Jermey Shockey minus the attitude than a Gronk.

I'm not really sure the Pat's are really all that scary. Like what everyone is saying about the Bill, look who the Pats have beaten. Steelers, Miami, and the Jets. None of those teams are doing well on Offense or on Defense. There opponents so far are 0-9 and ours are 1-8. I think this week is going to be a test for BOTH teams, not just the Bills.

The Colts are legit good.  That's why the Luck retirement stings so bad.  That's a team that could win the Super Bowl.  I think Brissett has shown he's good enough to keep them in the 10-11 win hunt for sure.

Agreed. I underestimate Brissett. He is very capable. Unfortunately for the Colts you can't just be capable when Mahomes and Brady are in the AFC. I think the Colts will be the 6 seed and lose to Ravens in round 1.
