Restoring Hope

Yes, Sundays' game was brutal. Let's take a brief step back for a second. EJ was coming back from injury. Hackett was game planning against a HOF coordinator. On the road. It's in the past. The Bills have shown to be way better than that. Remember all of the games we were in?

Yep, you do. The good thing is that 5 spots are pretty much a lock for the AFC in the playoffs. The better news is that the 6th spot is (still!)wide open. It's currently held by the Jets. We play them. This week. At home.

The scratches above denote possible losses for our enemies! You'll notice that I didn't predict every outcome but rather just pinpointed some crucial games that need to be lost(or at least to provide some wiggle room), with the intraconference games being the most important. To rule out any chance of losing tie-breakers, I am basing this on these teams finishing 8-8 or worse. Obviously, the Bills need to win out. Sitting at 3-7 and we still have a chance(do YOU Bill-lieve?)! Our biggest threat to the playoffs(besides ourselves) is the hated Jests out of Jersey. Luckily, we play them at home!

Looking at this week, we need to be rooting for the Midwest- Cincy, Chi-town, Indy and Detroit Rock City. The Fins/Chargers game seems to be a toss-up. The Fins are a mess and probably don't have much of a shot. The Chargers have a tougher schedule but are the better team. It's probably best to root for the Fins, what do you Rumblers think?

It all starts in Buffalo though! We need the 12th man to be rockin' and the Bills to kick the living bejesus out of those imposters from Jersey. Then we get to ride a nice high into the bye, come out of it rested to defeather the nested Julio-less Falcons. Go Bills!!

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
