At 4-7 and trailing in the AFC East by four games, making the playoffs isn’t supposed to be considered realistic for the Buffalo Bills.

While there have been 10 NFL playoff teams since 2007 with seven or more losses, only five of those teams have been wild card teams. And there is certainly a big difference between teams who finished the year 9-7 or even 8-8, and expecting the Bills, who have not won consecutive games yet this season, to put together a significant winning streak to secure a playoff berth.

Coming out of Buffalo’s Week 12 bye, however, the possibility should not be ruled out. And that isn’t just blind optimism from a Bills perspective. In the American Football Conference, in which only five teams have winning records, there are still nine teams with a realistic of being the AFC’s second wild card and sixth playoff team.

The entire organization heads into the bye week looking to “re-evaluate” everything. What needs no further evaluation is the fact that this is clearly not the playoff team that many believed was going to step onto the field in 2012. (more…)

It’s pretty incredible to think that even after a shaky start the Bills find themselves in a tie for first place in the AFC East. Sitting at 3-3, they head home for a must win game against the Tennessee Titans. After this week, the Bills have a bye to rest up before facing the Texans and Patriots. If they’re unable to pull out a victory against the Titans, they could find themselves looking directly in the eyes of a 3-6 start and a near impossible climb to get into the playoffs. (more…)
