It's November 13.
Said 6-4 team will be within a game and a half of AFC East leader New England.
Said 6-4 team will also remain very much in the mix in a crowded AFC playoff race.
The loser of tonight's game between the Bills and the Dolphins will be 5-5.
Said 5-5 team will be 2.5 games behind New England in the standings with six games to play.
Said 5-5 team will also wind up looking up at a large number of teams in the AFC playoff standings by the time the Week 11 schedule is concluded.
Tonight, on Thursday Night Football in Miami, the usually-terrible Bills have a chance to stay relevant until at least November 23. They can do that by winning. If they lose, they'll reach also-ran status for a fourteenth straight season, and the last six games of the campaign will take on significantly reduced meaning.
