The Buffalo Bills (10-6) have been winners of their last four games and have put themself in a position to not only clinch the playoffs but also win the division on Sunday night. They will head down to South Beach to take on the Miami Dolphins in a scenario where the Bills could win the AFC East and the number two seed, or miss out on the playoffs if things do not go the way they need them too.

The Bills will already know where they will stand going into this game based on what happens in the Pittsburgh vs. Baltimore and Tennessee vs. Jacksonville games. If the Steelers and Jaguars win their games, then the Bills have no choice but to win to get into the playoffs. If one of those teams loses, they are automatically in no matter what happens in Miami.

The Dolphins currently lead the division heading into this matchup, but the Bills currently have the tiebreaker on the season series. In addition, the Dolphins have been unlucky when it comes to the health of players which included pass-rusher Bradley Chubb tearing his ACL last week and cornerback Xavier Howard being carted off the field last week against the Baltimore Ravens. The Dolphins have more disadvantages going into this game, but it is the Bills who have more pressure on them.

Here are the 3 reasons why the Buffalo Bills have more pressure on them heading into Week 18.
