Relativity matters.

 

Who are the frontrunners to represent the AFC this year?

 

Bills (Week 7), Titans (Week 6), Raiders (Week 6), Chiefs (Week 8),  Chargers (Week 8), Bengals (Week 10).

 

With the exception of the Bengals, every expected-to-be-good team is within 1 week of the Bills bye week. 

How is that possible?  Unless you think there are only three "expected to be good" teams.

"Frontrunners to represent the AFC"...

That's 6 teams.

that is the sort of thing we used to get whacked with. I remember when Nix was here he actually complained to league one year because we played about 5 times right off a bye. This is what being relevant buys you. 

Agreed. Still not a fan of Nix!

Fine, you cant have six teams all within one week of your bye even if you exclude the Bengals..

Depends on Lamar. I did think he was making nice progress early last year before his season went to hell.

 

I think even if Lamar is just Lamar though that with their team back around him they win 10. Yes they traded away Hollywood but everywhere except receiver they are loaded

Could be. Here in Baltimore, most Ravens fans think Bateman > Hollywood, no one was too upset to see him leave town.

Yea. They lose something in Hollywood the speed element but his hands were questionable and he took plays off.

Anti-clutch. Some of his drops last year were at the worst possible times. Maybe he’s better with the Cardinals… Greg Roman is still Public Enemy #1 here.

Hey NFL, do you think KC can play IN Buffalo? Jesus, every year its at Arrowhead. Give me a break!

KC won't play in Buffalo in the regular season until 2026 I believe. 

 

They fact we have played there during the regular season 3 years straight was all based on the schedule.  

 

I know it was broken down on one of the wgr shows on how it happened this way but it was because of the way each team finished and which conference played who each year.

Thanks for that Wiz. Just seems unfair in my opinion. But whatever, just win and GO BILLS!!

The Cardinals are fools.  Trading a first round pick for a middling speed receiver with questionable hands....I can't wait until they pay Kyler Murray $40+ million per year and cement a decade of mediocrity.

I’m not sure if you’re genuinely not understanding or if you’re just trying to start a fight. But if it’s the latter, I don’t engage in fights. I walk away.

 

One last time. There are about 6 teams that most people think are the front runners to win the AFC this year. All but 1 of those 6 (the Bengals) have a bye week that is within 1 week of the Bills bye week. Aka, it’s fair.

Not quite true. They are not GUARANTEED to play in Buffalo until 2026. But they could in 2024 and 2025. Indeed we could get three years straight of home games v KC as they will have now with us (2021, 2022, 2023) and as Tennessee just had with us (2019, 2020, 2021). 

 

The Bills are in KC in 2022 because of position in division and because this is year 2 of the AFCW having home advantage in those games (it goes in two year cycles).

 

They are in KC in 2023 because ACFE plays ACFW intra-conference and the last time that happened (2020) Bills had home field. 

 

Then in 2024 and 2025 whoever finished 2023 and 2024 in the same spot as the AFCW that the Bills finish in the AFCE (so likely 1st) will visit Buffalo. 

 

Then in 2026 KC are guaranteed to play in Buffalo in the intra-conference match ups again.

Are you saying we play in KC next season too?  So at least 4 straight years?  Has that ever happened before?  There should be checks in place for this so that it doesnt happen.

Yes we play there next season but no, not four straight years - three straight years. We only played in KC in 2020 in the playoffs. The regular season game was at home.
