In the regular-season finale, the Buffalo Bills can capture the AFC Division title with a win against the New York Jets

The 2021 season hasn’t gone as expected. Troubling losses to the Jaguars, Colts, Steelers, and Titans had almost cost the Buffalo Bills a shot at the postseason, considering the parity in the conference. But even after an erratic year, the Bills have a chance to make history.

At 10-6, the Bills sit atop the division and are currently the fourth seed in the conference. A win on Sunday would guarantee Buffalo a home playoff game and its second-consecutive AFC East division crown for the first time since 1991.

The New York Jets (4-12) travel to Orchard Park looking to play spoiler. New York has been one of the worse teams in the NFL. But they have pulled off their share of upsets this year defeating the Titans and Bengals. Rookie quarterback, Zach Wilson, also appears to have found some momentum in recent weeks; accounting for three touchdowns to zero interceptions in his last two games.

Buffalo has already clinched a postseason berth. And winning on Sunday would send them to the postseason on a four-game win streak and add another hat and t-shirt to their wardrobe by clinching another AFC East title. Here’s how to watch and a few final thoughts ahead of kickoff.
