Following week 11 action (one game pending) the Bills (4-7) sit at 14th in the AFC, yet are only 1.5 games behind the final Wild Card leaders at 5-5 (NYJ, MIA).
Teams #8-13 (OAK, TEN, PIT, BAL, SD, CLE) have identical 4-6 records.
Next week there are some big games that will shake things up a bit, while the Bills sit home and get healthy:
SD @ KC (Go Chefs)
CAR @ MIA (Go Panthers)
PIT @ CLE (Bills lost to both, but I think we root for the Browns here)
NYJ @ BAL (Go Ravens)
TEN @ OAK (Raiders have the better conference record, so go Titans)
Bottom line -- if the Jets and Fish both lose next week, no matter what else happens Buffalo is one stinking game out of a playoff spot with five to go.
