This is the case with three of the teams in the playoffs this year as well as the Bills. Yes, the Bills are in the same category as the Patriots, Ravens and 49ers. These teams were also in the playoffs back in 2011. The last time this has happened was the ’92 and ’93 playoffs where the Bills, Cowboys and 49ers all repeated.
So in a way, you can say that Buffalo is in the same category as three of the four final four teams in this year. It would be better if the Bills were in the playoffs this year, but changes are on the horizon and only time will tell at this point.
