It all comes down to this for the Buffalo Bills, folks. Three more weeks and we’ll know their final playoff positioning.

After a narrow Week 15 victory over the Miami Dolphins, the Bills still hold onto the number 1 seed in the AFC.

Although the schedule may look doable for the remaining three games, Buffalo won’t have it that easy. Make no mistake, there will be some tests.

Let’s start off by looking at the Christmas Eve matchup where Buffalo travels to Chicago to take on one of the league’s most exciting, up-and-coming players.

Buffalo Bills at Chicago Bears Week 16 Prediction

The Bears just proved they could hang with Philadelphia, losing only by a score of 30-25. Justin Fields was once again magical at times, and the Bills better be ready to try and stop him — both through the air and on the ground.

Fields is now gunning for Lamar Jackson’s single-season rushing record in which he needs just 206 more yards in the final three games. Something tells me he’ll get about half of those in this one, with the way he’s been playing as of late.

The Bears are without their top receiver still in Darnell Mooney, and they’ve been the league’s best rushing attack. If there was one vulnerability we saw last weekend against Miami, it was on the ground.

Still, Chicago’s defense has been porous this year. The Bills’ potent offense should be able to do more than enough to handle these Bears, but not without some flashy plays from Fields.

Final Score: Buffalo 38 Chicago 24
