Buffalo needs to continue to stack wins
We kind of already talked about this a little earlier regarding other AFC teams that need to lose to help the Bills move up in the playoff race. However, several of these AFC teams play each other down the stretch, including the Bills facing the Dolphins. I believe that if Buffalo just wins these games, everything else will take care of itself and the Bills will find themselves in the playoffs.
This isn't the first time the Bills have been in a position like this either. It was only a few seasons ago when the Bills were sitting at 7 - 6 and being written off, only to have them reel off four straight wins and finish as the AFC East champs and a trip to the playoffs. This is the exact scenario I see playing out here as well.
