Bills could have clinched a playoff spot today with a win

Recommended Posts

The Bills could have clinched a playoff spot today with a win and Houston, Oakland, and Indianapolis losses. At the start of today, I said there is no chance all three of those teams lose. Well, the impossible happened, and they did. Except Buffalo failed to keep its end of the bargain. What's worse, New England is losing to the Chiefs currently. We had our shot at the division, and we blew it. I don't think Baltimore is that good.

Baltimore is the hottest team in the league, we didnt blow anything and the fact we even had a shot at the division would have still needed us to beat the Pats at Foxborough.

I totally get what you are saying.  I disagree with the sentiment that Baltimore isnt that good.  Years of the Bills sucking might be causing you to frame your argument in a way that diminishes the Ravens.  The Ravens are very good, the Bills showed they can play with the best team in the league.  Still have miles to go on offense but I think today shows that the Bills aren't the same old Bills.

I never thought buffalo was capable of winning the division to begin with...it was nice to fantasize about but never really seemed practical to me...

Baltimore is really good. But that's still a bummer we were close there and in the Pats game.

Exactly. I get the sentiment of "we competed" but these games could have been had. We contained both Brady and Jackson, but couldn't get it done offensively. Not like we didn't have opportunities. They are trending upwards and all that good stuff, but moral victories are not my thing.

Agreed. But the Pats don't scare me anymore.

Pats could lose two more and we win out.  Pitt got lots of help from bad Arizona plays

Yup, it was all there for us. And we dropped the ball. I'm so sick of watching our offense and special  teams fail. Watching our defense carry this team on their backs. So sick of mediocre coaching. Just draft all offense in april. Sign all offense in fa.

True, but the Bills clinch with ONE win in their last three. Even if we don’t beat the Steelers, which we will, we beat the Jets at home we’re in.  

 

I just want to beat the Patriots for good measure. And the Steelers too.

Yeah. The Patriots are pulling out trick plays and relying on special teams to try to claw out wins. Our reign begins next year fully.

Incorrect. Bills only clinch with win over Steelers. Single win over NE or NYJ does not clinch.

They only need to win one of the next 3

How is this the case? IF Pitt and Tennessee were to win out, they'd both be 11-5. 

 

Maybe Tennessee plays Houston or some other scheduling scenario, but I question this.

We still have a shot at the division.

Gotcha. Pretty crazy that they play twice in the last 3, but that explains it.

Yeah, but need to win out and hope for a Dolphins or Bungle win over the Pats.

I actually don't think it's impossible for the Dolphins to beat the Patriots honestly. Unlikely? Sure but still possible

Bills clinch with a win, even if it’s in week 17 vs NYJ. That wasn’t the case last week, so HOU losing to DEN plus OAK, IND losing must have changed things. Bills control their destiny, needing just a win in last 3 weeks.
