The Buffalo Bills were able to save their season for at least one more week with a 20-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. They moved to 7-6 and now return to Highmark Stadium for the first game in almost a month to play one of the best teams in the NFC in the Dallas Cowboys.
The Cowboys have won five straight games and done so in pretty convincing fashion as four of the five games were by 20 or more points. Last week against the Philadelphia Eagles might have been the most impressive win during this stretch as they would jump out to a 24-6 halftime lead and never let the Eagles really get back into it with a 33-13 win.
For the Buffalo Bills, they don't necessarily need to win out and if there was a game to lose, it would be this one. It is the final NFC opponent and this doesn't really factor into any tiebreakers for playoff spots.
However, if they were to lose this week the Bills absolutely have to win out to get to 10 wins and give themselves a good chance at a Wild Card spot. If the Bills were to win, the calculation shifts pretty significantly because not only is a playoff spot well within reach but the AFC East is back in the discussion.
There is plenty to talk about leading into this game but ultimately it could come down to which quarterback plays better. Dak Prescott is playing excellent and has to be one of the top contenders for the MVP award.
Meanwhile, Josh Allen has gotten better recently and while the turnovers is a concern, he is leading the league in touchdowns. The most combined points scored this season was back in Week 3 when the Miami Dolphins beat the Denver Broncos 70-20.
This game will be much more competitive but will have a chance to surpass the 90 points scored in that Dolphins game. The Bills find a way to secure the win in what ends up being one of the most exciting, back-and-forth games of the season.
