As the Buffalo Bills head to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles on Sunday, there is a lot on the line. There is the pride factor between Buffalo’s LeSean McCoy and Philadelphia’s Chip Kelly, but more importantly there are playoff hopes resting on every move these two teams make. Here are predictions from our staff and the best from you on social media:

The Eagles are coming off of a stunning upset of the Patriots, but let’s no forget before that they gave up 45 points to Detroit and Tampa Bay. The Buffalo offense has looked good lately, and I don’t see them having any trouble moving the ball this week. The Eagles have been wildly inconsistent this year, so who knows which Eagles team will show up, the one who beat New England, or the one that was blown out by Tampa Bay. I like Buffalo in this one, another close game that could come down to the last drive.

At the end of the day it comes down to whether or not the Buffalo Bills come to play. The Bills the a better team on paper. Tyrod Taylor and Sammy Watkins should be able to take advantage of the Philadelphia secondary all game long and have another big day. LeSean McCoy is dynamic runner as it is, but coming back to Philly he’s primed for a big game. Defensively, it’s crucial to keep the Eagles in third-and-longs. If Buffalo can do that it’ll be in good shape.

The Bills are basically in win or go home mode the rest of the season, and playing three teams from the NFC East will help with that. Either way, the Bills should go into Philadelphia and handily defeat the Eagles in my book. Philly struggles to throw the ball at all and with Buffalo’s rush defense, DeMarco Murray and Darren Sproles will have a tough time getting anything going. Offensively, I don’t think the Bills should have any problems with Philly’s D, with Shady and Sammy both going for 100 yards in their respective categories pretty easily.
