It was only a month ago when I was pushing back on fans saying the Bills season was over. I reminded fans about that 2021 season when the Bills sat a 7 - 6 and ripped off four straight wins. Jump back to this season and the Bills are now riding another four-game win streak, which sets up a massive showdown this weekend against the Miami Dolphins for the AFC East crown. The Bills set this up by taking down the Patriots, in a game that saw rookie Dalton Kincaid set another Bills record.

What about the Baltimore Ravens? They completely dominated the Miami Dolphins who, outside of a home win against the Dallas Cowboys, struggled mightily against a team with a winning record. The Ravens decimated the Dolphins by a score of 56 - 19 and secured the top spot in the AFC playoffs one week early. Now the question will be whether the Ravens choose to play Lamar Jackson and other starters or rest them for the playoffs.

Over in the AFC South, the top three teams all won this past weekend, setting up a huge Week 18 for the division title. The Jacksonville Jaguars just need to win, and they will be division champions. The Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans play each other, and the winner will have to hope for a Jaguars loss, who will face the 5 - 11 Tennessee Titans.

The Kansas City Chiefs secured the AFC West title after defeating the Cincinnati Bengals 25 - 17 and the third seed in the AFC playoffs. The Denver Broncos won but sitting at 8 - 8, were eliminated from the playoff race, as was the Raiders and Chargers.
