The Buffalo Bills are 5-7, and mention of the word "playoffs" elicits a Jim Mora-esque response from Bills fans these days. The team has lost five games in a row after a 5-2 start, and are now only a game ahead of a Miami team once 0-7 in the AFC East.

Our question for you: will the Bills win another game this season? They've got four games left to play; we'll take a look at each contest after the jump, and you can vote in a poll there, as well.

Here's a quick look at the four games remaining on Buffalo's schedule this season.

December 11 at San Diego Chargers: San Diego has had a similar season to Buffalo this year. They started the year 4-1, and have since lost six straight games to fall to 4-7 and, barring a miracle comeback in the AFC West, appear on the brink of a massive organizational overhaul. They're a soft team whose stars look like shells of their former selves; you can judge the accuracy of that sentiment for yourselves tonight on Monday Night Football.

December 18 vs. Miami Dolphins: Miami is trending in the exact opposite direction as Buffalo; they're 4-1 after an 0-7 start, and one of those four wins came at Buffalo's expense in a 35-8 thrashing three weeks ago. In that five-game run, they've out-scored their opponents 139-54. Even in Buffalo, this game looks like it'll be a tremendously difficult one.

December 24 vs. Denver Broncos: In a game certain to be lightly attended by Western New York natives much more interested in holiday and familial affairs, the Bills will take on a Broncos team that has won five straight games and is now in first place in the AFC West. This is a tough, smart football team with an excellent defense, a top-notch running attack, and a play-making quarterback in Tim Tebow.

January 1 at New England Patriots: Though Buffalo beat this team in Week 3 - goodness, that seems like a lifetime ago - it seems highly unlikely that Buffalo will get four more interceptions as late holiday gifts from Tom Brady. Take away a distinct home-field advantage, several of the Bills' best offensive and defensive players and the low-pressure stakes of the early season, and this seems like the unlikeliest game that the Bills could win.
