The Buffalo Bills are fighting for a playoff spot and have a big matchup this week against the Dallas Cowboys. It doesn't necessarily factor into any of the tiebreakers so a loss won't be too tough to overcome but for the Bills right now the focus is to just win.

While the Buffalo Bills have to take care of their own business, they can get some help depending on the outcome of some of the other games. These are six teams to root for in Week 15 that if they won would be good news for the Buffalo Bills.

Minnesota Vikings over Cincinnati Bengals

The NFL has three games on Saturday and the first one of the day is worth watching with the Minnesota Vikings visiting the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals have the same record as the Buffalo Bills at 7-6 but hold the head-to-head tiebreaker.

If the Vikings were to pull off the win here, the Buffalo Bills could move ahead of the Bengals with a win over the Cowboys.
