The Buffalo Bills are entering the final regular season game with a wide range of possibilities for what the playoffs, or lack thereof, look like. With a win over the Miami Dolphins, the Buffalo Bills will secure the number two seed and the AFC East division for a fourth straight year.

However, if they lose they could be the sixth seed, seventh seed, or completely out of the playoffs. On top of the uncertainty about whether or not they are in the playoffs, there are five potential teams they could play depending on the results this week.

With that in mind, let's rank the potential matchups from toughest to easiest for the Buffalo Bills.

Kansas City Chiefs (Road Game)

Among all the potential outcomes, the toughest is probably a road game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Bills would end up being the sixth seed in this situation and would land here if they were to lose against the Dolphins but they would also need the Jaguars and Steelers to lose their games.

The Kansas City Chiefs have struggled down the stretch and have not looked like the powerhouse team they have been in the past. However, this is a veteran team that knows how to win in the playoffs. The Bills have won their last two trips to Arrowhead Stadium but both were in the regular season while they have seen their season end in the playoffs there in 2020 and 2021.
