I got to thinking this morning, (Sometime this really gets me in trouble) and it occured to me that this very winnable game could end up having huge implications on our season If We Win Look at what happens around the AFC:
New England 1-0 vs San Diego 1-0 @ Home - This is a win win for the Bills, because we have the oppurtunity to gain a game on a potential division leader. Whether it's our own division or another division one of these teams has to go to 1-1.
New York Jets 1-0 vs Jacksonville 1-0 @ Home - Again this is a win win for the Bills, either a Divisional opponent goes to 1-1 or a team with a chance at the wild card goes 1-1 and we gain a game aswell.
Pittsburgh 0-1 vs Seattle @ Home - Pittsburgh in an almost guartanteed win can only be 1-1, again we are a game up on a potential wildcard contender.
Indy vs Cleveland @ Home - Indy is going to struggle this year and if Cleveland wins it puts another wildcard contender at 1-1, a game behind the Bills.
Miami vs Houston @ HomeHome - To me this is going to be the Biggest help game for the Bills. if Houston can put Miami down to 0-2 thats a big 2 game advantage for the Bills, if Miami wins it puts another potential division champ down to 1-1.
Other games include Bal @ Tennessee and Cinci @ Denver but to me these games mean a little bit less. my point is this.
Buffalo has a very favorable schedule going forward and if we can get a game up early by letting our out of division rivals beat up on each other, we stand a pretty good chance at that Wildcard spot. I know I might be jumping the gun a bit, but I mean any chance for us to get a game up is huge and I know many of us us on this site now how important it really is. If Buffalo can take care of business at home and by going 6-2 and if we can get 3 to 4 wins on the road we really have a chance at that Wildcard spot.
