The 4-6 Buffalo Bills still fancy themselves playoff contenders in an AFC wild card race that is muddled, messy and very much open for the taking. In order to keep their slim hopes alive, however, they'll need to beat the current wild card leader on their home field. They'll get just that opportunity when they take on the 6-4 Indianapolis Colts this afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Buffalo is 1-3 in their last four games following a 3-3 start to the season, but they have played better, more consistent football since their bye week, losing reasonably on the road to two Super Bowl contenders (Houston and New England) and handling business last Thursday night at home against Miami. That level of play has not, however, been good enough to keep the Bills in serious playoff contention; they can undo some of the damage done in their six losses this year by winning their third road game of the season.
This is your open thread for the first half of today's game. Let's go Buffalo!
