Here Are The Buffalo Bills Current Playoff Odds
The Buffalo Bills have now lost two straight games after beating thee New Orleans Saints on Thanksgiving. One to the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football, 14-10, and the other to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in overtime, 33-27, in a game that featured Bills fans being angry at the NFL officiating.
The loss puts the Bills at 7-6, which is a disappointment for fans who wanted to see them get the number one seed in the AFC, which is clearly slipping away with each passing week.
What did yesterday's brutal overtime loss do to the Bills current playoff odds, though?
To be honest, it actually didn't change all that much. The Bills still hold the 7th and final playoff seed in the AFC today, with the Cincinnati Bengals loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
As it stand today, the Bills have a 66 percent chance to make the playoffs, according to Sunday Night Football on NBC, although, that only takes into games remaining and the current records of other teams.
If the Bills win out, they have a 100 percent chance at the playoffs, obviously. If they lose to the Patriots and win the other three games, they still have an 87 percent chance to make the playoffs.
If the Bills win their next two games (Carolina at home, New England on the road), the Bills have more than a 60 percent shot to win the AFC East and that number climbs with a win against the New York Jets at home the last game of the regular season.
Five AFC teams have a 7-6 record, with two at 8-5 and two at 9-4. That's right, just two games separate seeds 1-10...that's bananas!
