There are only three games on tap in the NFL in this late-afternoon time slot, and only one of them has playoff implications for the Buffalo Bills. It's not the one you'll be watching if you're a Western New York cable subscriber, either.
The game you'll want to pay attention to in the AFC playoff race takes place in San Diego, where the 2-7 Chargers, fresh off of their bye week, will try to slow the roll of the 4-5 Kansas City Chiefs, who are coming off of a pretty impressive win over Denver on the road last weekend. The 5-4 Bills will travel to take on Kansas City next weekend in what is shaping up to be a pretty important matchup in the conference, and Bills fans should obviously be rooting for Kansas City to fall in the standings today.
If you're a Western New York native without a subscription to an all-inclusive games package, however, you'll be treated to an interesting NFC matchup that will have little to no impact on the Bills' playoff chances: the NFC North lead is up for grabs with 6-3 Green Bay visiting 7-2 Minnesota. Perhaps a low-stress, high-quality matchup is precisely what you're looking for.
All three of your afternoon matchups:
- Chiefs (4-5) at Chargers (2-7)
- Packers (6-3) at Vikings (7-2)
- 49ers (3-6) at Seahawks (4-5)
Which game will you be watching, Bills fans?
