1.) The Buffalo Bills are officially in trouble in the AFC

With this loss against yet another AFC team that will more than likely make a run at the playoffs, the Bills are now down in the tiebreakers against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Cincinnati Bengals. To make things worse, the Bills failed to take control of the AFC East with the Miami Dolphins losing to the Kansas City Chiefs and could fall down to third place in the division if the New York Jets win on Monday night against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The start to the tough schedule for the Bills starts with a loss to the Bengals and now they head home to host the Denver Broncos next week. After that, they will see the New York Jets again, followed by the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs. At 5-4, in the tough AFC conference, the Bills are closer to looking in from the outside rather than getting into playoff position.
