With just two weeks remaining in the 2012 regular season, you can't tell me that the Buffalo Bills don't have something to play for. Sure, they're eliminated from playoff contention, and sure, we've seen them play out the string for 13 straight years now.
Here's the thing, though: the Miami Dolphins are 6-8, and somehow, they haven't been mathematically been eliminated from playoff contention yet. Sure, they have less than a one percent chance of sneaking into the playoff field. As unlikely as that is, how sweet would it be for Buffalo to not only sweep Miami, but officially eliminate them from playoff contention, as well? Hey - all we have are small victories at this point, right?
Falcons 34, Lions 21: Do you remember that scene in the ridiculous third Matrix movie, when Neo and Trinity drive a ship up through the blackened sky and see the sun for four seconds before plunging back into the darkness? That's what 2011 was to Lions fans.
Broncos 37, Browns 17: Man, Denver's had an easy ride this season. What a soft schedule.
Bears 20, Cardinals 7: As down on Chicago as I am, they're still good enough to handle Arizona with ease.
Giants 27, Ravens 23: This is the marquee game of the afternoon, despite both teams getting blown out last week. Weird.
49ers 20, Seahawks 17: Sorry, Russell Wilson - I just don't trust you enough yet. This will, however, be a physical, low-scoring, close affair that could go either way.
Dolphins 24, Bills 20: Remember when Buffalo dominated Miami and still only won by five points, despite playing at home in a nationally televised game? I don't think they have another dominant performance in them. They haven't swept anyone yet under Chan Gailey, either. I'll roll with Miami, and pray that I'm wrong.
Last Week: 9-7 Season Record: 146-77-1 Bills Predictions: 11-3
