@ Mia - Win

DEN - Win

@ Dal - Win

BAL - Loss

@ Pit - Loss

@ NE - Loss

NYJ - Loss

 

3 straight wins to get to 9-3, including an upset win over the Cowboys on Thanksgiving will have us all feeling great over the holiday weekend..........

3 straight losses will have us all in a panic and setup a must win final weekend in Buffalo vs. the Jets to get into the playoffs.

 

McDermott and Josh Allen put up a stinker and lose in heartbreaking fashion, and miss the playoffs, setting up an offseason fueled with discussion over whether this coach and QB combo are the answer.

I look at our injury report compared to other teams and think that will be the difference between 8-8 and 10-6.  Our offense will improve as they become more comfortable playing together.  I have us going 10-6 beating the teams we're supposed to beat and an upset against Baltimore.  That record probably gets us into the playoffs.

Don't forget that in the event of a 3 way tie, head to head is thrown out.  Remember in '17 we lost to the Chargers but beat them in tiebreakers because there were 3 teams in the tie.

Pre Season? NO misses, thus far.

 

WK1 @ Jets. WIN (1-0)

WK2 @ Giants WIN (2-0)

WK3 Bengals WIN (3-0)

WK4 Patriots LOSS (3-1)

WK5 @ Titans WIN (4-1)

WK6 BYE (4-1) 

WK7 Dolphins WIN (5-1)

WK8 Eagles LOSS (5-2)

WK9 Redskins WIN (6-2)

WK10 @ Browns LOSS (6-3)

WK11 @ Dolphins WIN (7-3) 

WK12 Broncos WIN (8-3)

WK13 @ Cowboys LOSS (8-4)

WK14 Ravens WIN (9-4)

WK15 @ Steelers LOSS (9-5)

WK16 @ Patriots LOSS (9-6)

WK17 Jets WIN  (10-6) 

 

I am now sceptical of beating the Ravens- obviously. After that horrible loss last week, likely to be 9-7 & possibly miss the Playoffs.

10-6 and no playoffs.   That could happen.

Unfortunately I have to stick with my preseason calculations. The back half will produce a 9-7 or 8-8  season. The Bills have a playoff caliber Defense that unfortunately was exposed as weak against the run. A slightly less than average offense with a weak Oline,  is short a #1 WR, no TE who stands out as NFL starter, and a QB that has yet to prove he is capable of being a Franchise QB. ST is a weakness with a bad punter and a kicker sliding down the wrong side of his career. Our top two draft picks have both failed to live up to their high draft positions. They have not contributed to this season like someone drafted that high are expected to, although they both may have potential for the future. This team is exactly as it appeared before the season began, and the GM has done nothing substantial to improve it since then,  despite its obvious and glaring shortcomings. It appears they will perform on the field exactly as it appeared on paper before the season started.

For the mere fact of hearing John Murphy asking rhetorical questions on the last game broadcast, I hope you’re wrong.  😁

At Miami LOSS 16-21 No offensive click the defense falls apart at the end as we lead most of the game until the end 

Denver LOSS 13-10 Again we need to score frustration in the team , defense plays better but it is not enough 

At Cowboys WIN expecting a loss A Big win ! An unexpected win 14-9 

Ravens  LOSS We get blow away 43-7 Ravens are very very good 

At Steelers LOSS Again very close 9 -13 Much improved defense from last week  and offense just not  able to score  

At Patriots LOSS but it should have been a win the referees screws us on purpose and give a free win to the Cheetriots 17-22 

NY Jets WIN a meaningless win , highest scoring game of the season but too late ! We blow away the NY Jets 45-10 

Very disappointing 8-8 season

I'm also wary of Miami as they aren't playing like a tank team anymore. They will still get either Tua, Burrow, or Herbert as most of the bottom feeders don't need

QBs. Fitz can step it up as well.

9-7..fall just short of the playoffs (losses to Balt, Dallas and Pats plus one of Miami, Denver, Jets, Pitt (probably Pitt)...2020 will be critical year for Beane, McDermott and Allen..no playoffs in 2020-21 they will be swept out by the Pegulas

 

if they get to 10-6 I think they make the playoffs unless something weird happens with the other wildcard slots..at 10-6 and playoff berth Bean, et al will get a full five years

at Miami - WIN

Denver - WIN but will be a tough game.

at Dallas - LOSS

Baltimore - LOSS

at Pitt - probable LOSS but wouldn't be shocked if they won. 

at NE - LOSS until we beat this team I can't predict otherwise.

JETS - WIN but if we need the game to get in then watch out. The Jets would love to spoil our season just like the Bills did to them a few years ago.

 

I see 9-7 maybe 10-6 if they get the Pitt game.

5-2 in the 2nd half to finish 11-5, one game behind the Pats*** who will stumble a bit but finish 12-4.

 

#5 seed on the road for WC weekend.

I'll answer after week 17.

 

A couple weeks ago, this board had us nabbing 11-12 wins.  Now we can barely clear 8.  Its almost as if the NFL is a week to week league and things change over time, and you need to have a more even temperament. 

 

I don't know. I'm just throwing it out there. Maybe I'm crazy.

Either that or this fanbase is incredibly mentally weak.

Dear lord, I remember the grade school female classmates making those, mid to late 60s.  Nowadays the third graders probably use an app.

With 7 games left, we absolutely need to win 4 at minimum. Hopefully more.

After the Steelers/Browns cluster F and truly believing the Bills will be hungry and more aggressive here is my bold predictions.

 

Miami- W - spy on Fitz and take away short to intermediate routes

 

Denver- W - Broncos come into a hostile Bills home field crowd and get thumped

 

Dallas- L - tough on turkey day in the big D and the boys will throw the kitchen sink at us


Ravens- L - We will not be able to contain Lamar

 

Steelers - W- they just are not very good and totally beatable

 

Pats- L- We know the drill

 

Jets- W- This game has huge ramifications for a WC birth- Jets try to play the spoiler but the Bills edge it out!

 

10-6
