Bills Will Host The Indianapolis Colts For Home Playoff Game
Going into week 17, it was undetermined who the Bills would play in the Wild Card round of the playoffs or any team for that matter, but now we know who will be coming to Orchard Park next weekend.
The Buffalo Bills will host the Indianapolis Colts in the Wild Card round next weekend at Bills Stadium.
The matchup was due to the Miami Dolphins losing to the Bills, while the Colts defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans beat the Houston Texans. If the Colts had lost the Bills would've played Miami. If the Titans had lost they would have played Tennessee.
There's a familiarity with the Colts in regards to Western New York. Their head coach is former Bills backup quarterback Frank Reich, who was with the team during their four-straight Super Bowl years in the early 90s.
The Colts quarterback is longtime starter Philip Rivers, who spent most of his career with the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers before reuniting with his former offensive coordinator (Reich) in Indianapolis.
The Colts have a great running game and a great run defense, but their weak spot just might be the pass defense, which is a problem against the Bills who boast one of, if not, the best passing offense in the NFL.
The game will kickoff at 1:05 p.m. this Saturday on CBS/WIVB!
