It's certainly an uphill climb, but it's interesting nonetheless.
Jets can't go 3-0 if we win out

Anyway, essentially what it comes down to is Buffalo owns all possible tiebreakers at 8-8 unless San Diego is involved (who will have the best conference record since they're already 0-3 outside of conference).

Cleveland's non-conference record won't come into play against us without San Diego because there's no other team from the other two divisions that could possibly cause a 3 way tie between 3 teams of different divisions (and the tiebreakers whittle teams down to 1 per division before doing anything else). Meaning all other possible multiple way ties involving Cleveland will whittle down to Buffalo vs Cleveland which the Bills win via head to head win.

Luckily the Bills get a break next week since they catch the currently ice cold Seahawks.

Yeah, let's just say I thought the Bills running the table last week was much more likely than I do now.

Seattle is a different team at home than on the road, though. Too bad this one's in Toronto.

They beat a JV team. Nothing to see here.

Two things have to happen:

Bungaloes lose in Philly Thursday and the Bungaloes beat the Steelers.

If that happens I forsee 8-8 being the number of that WildCard spot.

Apparently Greg Buck doesn't know who scored the Bills' TD yesterday, either: http://audio.wgr550.com/a/67863961/g...-guess-who.htm

"I know it wasn't Lonnie Johnson because he caught the pass."

The one with Cecil Shorts was probably my favorite in a long time.

"Cecil Shortsllllllllllllllllllll......wait where are you going?"

Tonight has me TICKED.

The Bills could have beat Houston in Houston. I watched that sad display of a game, Texans can't even compete with NE, Bills should have beat them. Team isn't as bad as 5-8 record would say.

In other news(wrong night to say it now I know) but I wish Wade Phillips would be the next coach.

I think Gailey is going to pull me out of the crowd on Sunday to run so Spiller doesn't get too many carries.

Seriously though, terrible match-up for Buffalo. A big, physical defense and an offense that can run the ball and protect the football.

I see Seattle winning by 14+.

I don't.... I see the Bills blowing out the rest of their season and going 8-8 to make sure their 1st round pick isn't in the top 12.

Wouldn't surprise me. Though it is a particularly weak draft class this year. I think we're in for a 7-9 finish.

I have a feeling the Bills will try to draft EJ Manuel in the 2nd or 3rd round.

Keenan Allen in the 1st?

God I hope not.

I'm hoping for Nassib, Glennon, or Murray in the 2nd....or even 3rd if one of them makes it there.

It sucks there aren't many 1st round caliber LB.

Umm..and you wouldn't use a 2nd round pick on a guy that will turn out like Matthew Stafford?

You do realize Stafford threw for over 5,000 yards and 41 td's last year right? I also don't see a lot in common between Murray and Stafford outside of both going to Georgia and playing QB. Stafford was way more polished coming out hence the 1st overall selection by Detroit.

Honestly I'm not a huge fan of taking a wr with our first round pick although I do like Allen a lot. I guess if all the quality LB's are drafted ie. Jones, T'eo, Mingo I wouldn't mind the pick Allen does have some big time play making ability, the only problem would be having a qb that could get him the ball.

Jarvis Jones might fall to us due to concerns over his spinal stenosis limiting his NFL career, at which point we'd have an interesting dilemma on whether to take him or pass on him.

Too bad Te'o's stock has probably risen too much for us.

I would be ecstatic with Jones, but isn't he still pretty much considered a top 5 pick?

Mingo is the only guy I see as a realistic target for OLB (or ILB) around where we'll be picking (8-12). I think Teo has solidified a top 5 pick, IMO Jones has as well. Where we'll be picking will be a real reach for Mosley.

Stafford is inconsistent and injury prone to boot. Murray isn't injury prone but you could definitely argue inconsistent.
