Buffalo Bills: AFC East Playoff Outlook

Kevin Hoffman-US PRESSWIRE

Now that the AFC East games are finished, there can be a better outlook as to where the Bills stand and their current playoff hopes, if any.  The Pats trounced the Rams 45-7 and go to 5-3 to lead the division.  The Dolphins beat the Jets 30-9 and move to 4-3 and the Jets fall to 3-5.  With the Bills sitting at 3-4 they move into 3rd place in the division by themselves and are not looking in too bad of a spot.  With the Jets loss there is a game in between them but as of right not the Jets still hold the head to head match up.  The Bills and Dolphins have yet to play so there are two games that the Bills should win and at most split.  They are still only two games out of the first place but the Pats hold the head to head match up right now as well.  As stated before the Bills need to win against either the Texans or the Pats to move into a possible 10-6 record.  With this they should grab one of the wildcard spots as long as they win against the Seahawks, Dolphins (split), Jets, Jags, Rams, and Colts.  If  they lose against either the Texans or Pats they can split against the Fins.  If they lose to both then they need to sweep the Dolphins to get that goal of 10-6.  10-6 is the mark they need to shoot for and with this we should see our Bills in the playoffs for the first time since the 1999 season against the Titans.
