Can the Buffalo Bills stack wins?

One of the reasons the Buffalo Bills have fallen out of first place in the AFC East is the fact that they have not been able to stack wins. After a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1, the Bills would go on to win four straight games with their last win in that streak coming against the Kansas City Chiefs.

However, a loss to the Tennessee Titans would start a trend where the Bills would alternate wins or losses over their next stretch of games. The Bills have really struggled to play at a consistent high-level week in and week out.

In their first game after the bye, they struggled against the Miami Dolphins before putting together a bad performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars. They bounced back to blowout the New York Jets before being blown out themselves by the Indianapolis Colts.

The roller coaster trend continued on Thanksgiving night with a dominant performance against the New Orleans Saints. If the team wants to make a deep run in the playoffs, or even ensure they are in the playoffs, they need to develop some consistency and play at the same level regardless of the opponent, every week.

This should be a great test for the Buffalo Bills in Week 13 to do just that.
