Will the Buffalo Bills secure a playoff spot?
The Buffalo Bills control their own destiny at this point and if they win their final two regular season games, they will be in the playoffs. However, they could know they are in the playoffs as early as the end of Sunday if things go their way.
There are actually plenty of ways for them to do this and in fact the total is14 different ways according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Every playoff clinching scenario includes at least three different things to go the Bills' way, starting with a win or tie. There is no playoff scenario that they clinch with a loss.
After that, the Bills need some combination of teams like the Steelers, Bengals, Jaguars, or Texans to lose or tie. For fans, there will be plenty of scoreboard watching but the Buffalo Bills need to take care of their business before there can be any discussion of playoffs.
