We have a bad conference record - 10-7 means we probably miss out on tiebreakers.

 

It's just not happening.

I don’t think there are four 10-7 wildcard teams.

 

Browns?

Texans?

Bengals?

Bills?

Colts?

Raiders?

Chargers?

 

Steelers are not as good as their record, they are going to start losing. Bengals will probably lose to the Ravens this week and fall to the same record as us.

 

If I had to guess, Texans get to 10-6 because they have a favorable schedule. Then one or two more teams will get there. Bills and Bengals have very tough schedules. I don’t really believe in the Colts or Raiders. Not sure what to make of the Chargers. They are a lot like us. Browns have lost Watson for the year.

 

It’s really wide open. Unfortunately we’ve forgotten how to play.

You know,  a thread like this should be for fans who still have a bit of hope to discuss realistic scenarios where the Bills could still get into the playoffs.

 

I get that other fans are frustrated and have given up - and I don't blame them - but what point is there in just hopping on here to ridicule the idea?

 

 

Agree. No ridicule from me. I appreciate the optimism. I don't have the same mindset myself though. I think we are out of the playoffs and have the off-season to get things straightened out. For that, I am optimistic that they will do that. Whether it's finding a new HC, getting good picks in the draft, getting Allen back to his old self, whatever it takes I feel confident they will figure it out. Unfortunately, I think we are too deep in the hole for this year.

You know what would be the ultimate Billsy moment. They somehow beat KC, PHI & DAL, and then lose to NE at home which ends up costing them a playoff spot. 

 

You know what we say, THAT SURE WAS BILLSY!

God I want to puke.  

 

This team needs to go 7-0 or 6-1 down the stretch.  

 

I have little confidence this will happen, but it could happen.  

 

They said goodbye to their OC who's been with the team for years, so this could wake everyone up.  I also could win the lottery. 

 

What a disappointing season

It's just not happening this year. I'm just going to watch the games hoping to see growth in the younger guys and new additions. If that doesn't happen.....well as we always say "there's always next year"

Miami just has to lose one more game than we do over the next 6 games.

 

So 8 games?  I know I know.

Bills went 8-0 after the Vikings loss last year until they lost to the bengals. 
 

if they’re the good team say they are and want to make it to the Super Bowl, they need to prove they can beat the good teams. They’re not going to be playing the panthers in the superbowl 


That’s what I’m saying.  If they can’t beat teams like the Eagles or Chiefs now, well where was this team going in the playoffs then?  But they need to worry about even beating a team like the Jets.

That's a mostly fair point IMO.

 

we can drop a game or two, as success pointed out, if we are one behind the fish for the last game, it's win and in.  i think miami drops at least 1, maybe more.

 

beating philly going into the bye might be necessary tho, from a momentum and confidence point of view.

Or run the table the other direction and get a really nice draft pick

Can't they just scratch by sinking the cue ball? 🤔

And as mentioned the other day, Buffalo at least controlled some of their playoff chances until Monday's loss.  With the loss, the Bills chances are entirely in the hands of opponents.  Buffalo could go undefeated the rest of the season, and still miss the playoffs.

 

EDIT: Monday night was the first time that Buffalo entirely lost control of their playoff chances, but future results of games might allow them to regain some control over postseason chances.
