Pittsburgh Steelers over Indianapolis Colts

The second game on Saturday has two teams that are both ahead of the Buffalo Bills and currently in the sixth and seventh seed. It is tough to find a team to necessarily root for based on the current results as they have the same record and almost the same tiebreakers.

The reason I picked the Pittsburgh Steelers is that their schedule is tougher over the final three weeks with games against the Seahawks and Ravens left. Meanwhile, the Colts have a good chance to win out with games against Falcons, Raiders, and Texans.

This could be their best chance at a loss for the rest of the season for the Colts so a loss here should keep them within striking distance of the Bills.

Detroit Lions over Denver Broncos

The final game on Saturday is much more straightforward as it has the Denver Broncos playing the Detroit Lions. The Broncos currently have the same record as the Bills at 7-6 but have the tiebreaker with their last-second win in Buffalo earlier this season.

The Lions have been struggling recently losing two of their last three games but a win here would really help the Buffalo Bills.
