Worst Case Scenerio to make playoffs

Recommended Posts

I truly think we're going 2-1, and 3-0 isn't even a stretch for the rest of the season. So I'm not being a pessimist. But calling on the numbers guys to figure out what needs to happen, if, worst case scenario, we go 0-3 for the season, how do we still slip into the playoffs?

I think there is a way for us to make it to the playoffs even if we lose out, but damn, I don't think I'd even want to be in the playoffs at that point...

So we lose out and slip in and end up getting hot in the playoffs and end up in the Super Bowl you wouldn't want that?

I no longer have any fear for missing the playoffs with Derrick Henry's new hamstring injury.

We still have a 57% chance to make it if we lose out and finish 9-7.

I still don't like being that close to 50%.  Obviously that means that we'll need help from other teams.  I wanna make it this year without having to rely on other team's failures.

I find this thread offensive

 And yet, if the BILLS were even the least bit offensive, we wouldn't have this thread.

Tennessee would need to also get to 7 losses if this scenario were to take place.  Buffalo owns the tie breaker.

Going to play along here. If we lose all three, we need the titans to drop two games. The browns, raiders and colts need to lose one. Might even be less if we have the tie breaker over the raiders or colts. Browns have to drop one because they have the head to head. Colts should lose in New Orleans on Monday.

Bingo!  The only other way I see is the Texans would have to lose all 3 of their remaining games along with a loss by IND, OAK and CLE.

The scenario I outlined isn't terribly far fetched. Raiders will likely drop one to the jags, broncos or bolts. Browns will likely lose to the Ravens next week. Colts will likely lose to the Saints this week. Titans could very easily split with the Texans and lose to the Saints in between. I just don't want it to come down to this.

If the Bills go 0-3 we would need the Browns (they play the Ravens still) , Raiders and Colts to lose once and the Titans to lose twice.

 

Im sure there more but that should do it

If we lose the next three games, we aren't winning a playoff game. It could happen, but it's very unlikely as it will mean that we're more pretender than contender.

We’re not going 0-3.  Billieve guys.  We gave the Ravens, all they could handle from our defense, and the next three opponents, do not have the talent the Ravens have on defense.  We’re going 2-1, or 3-0.  The only way we win the division as was talking to Papa on NFLR which as much as Weiss drives me crazy at times, are both in our corner is to win throughout, and the Pats have to lose to us and either Miami or Cincy.  Highly unlikely so we’ll probably face the Texans or Titans in the wildcard.  I’m confident we have a very good chance, and neither is like a Pittsburgh, KC, or Green Bay fan base, so I fully expect 20,000 Bills fans there and they get to get out of the cold.  I unfortunately can’t make it this year as I was in Jax two years ago, and we can create some noise in those stadiums.

 

After the wildcard, all bets are off and we’ll see.  At the end of the day an 11-5 or 12-4 record and a playoff win is a great move forward.  I just heard the proposed salary cap increase and would mean about $100 mil in cap space.  More than enough to extend, Dawson, Spain, Milano, White, and Lawson and cut Murphy.  We can continue to draft well, and probably pick up one marquee free agent and still be ok.

They don't deserve to go to the playoffs at 9-7. 

Supposed to get hot at the end of the season, not ^%$# the bed.

Even if they did get in at 9-7 they would be demoralized by then, scoring 3 in the playoff

one and out..

I think worst case scenario is we beat the jets in week 17.  However as previously stated..  Oakland and Cleveland need to lose 1 more which is likely.  And then titans splitting with the Texans and losing to the saints.  

 

I think that scenario is all pretty likely to unfold.  But I hope we take care of business sunday night so that it isn't a concern

What if we did though, what if we won the Super Bowl that way... I'd definitely take it and even be proud of the way we won.
