Bills Slim Playoff Hopes Still Alive

It’s a long-shot, but still a shot at making the playoffs. And talking to the players after the game they believe it. On a windy, wet day in Orchard Park the Bills ran for 232 yards and held the Jacksonville Jaguars to just 50 in a 34 to 18 win.

It improves the Bills season record to 5 & 7 with four games left. They’d likely have to win all four games to make the playoffs and probably would still need some help. So until the mathematicians say they’re out, the Bills have to focus on doing whatever they have to do to stay in it.

Fred Jackson led the rushing attack with 109 yards on 25 carries. C-J Spiller ran 14 times for 77 yards including a 44-yard touchdown run. And Ryan Fitzpatrick passed for a pair of touchdowns to Stevie Johnson and Scott Chandler. And on rainy, windy day Rian Lindell hit on a 50-yard field goal, one week after coach Chan Gailey declined to let him kick a 51-yarder indoors. Go figure.

And give the Bills defense credit. They’ve been playing a lot tougher and smarter the past few weeks. They limited the Jaguars to 236 total yards with four sacks and an interception.

The Bills remain home to host the St. Louis Rams next Sunday.
