With Saturday’s misfortune to the New England Patriots in Foxboro, the Buffalo Bills have secured the fifth seed in the forthcoming AFC Playoffs.
They can’t go up or down, which implies they’ll be on the road for the Wild Card round and play either Saturday, Jan. 4 or Sunday, Jan. 5. They’d likewise be destined to be on the road again if they somehow happened to win in the first round.
The only way the Bills could have a playoff game is on the off chance that they make it to the AFC Championship Game and the 6th seed does, too. The 6th seed still can’t seem to be resolved, as is the fourth seed, who will be the Bills’ opening-round rival.
Here’s the playoff situation for the Bills, the extent that who they may play in the first round. There are just two potential rivals, the Houston Texans or the Kansas City Chiefs:
The Bills will play in Houston except if the following occurs:
The Chiefs lose one week from now and the Texans win one week from now.
All things considered, they would open up the playoffs in Kansas City.
The Chiefs play one week from now at home against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Texans play one week from now at home against the Tennessee Titans, who need to win to make the playoffs.
