AFC Playoff Picture, Week 13: Oakland Raiders eliminated, Buffalo Bills take severe hit

One team was eliminated but several are on their last gasps.

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

The Buffalo Bills lost a winnable game to the Miami Dolphins and Sunday, virtually sealing their fate for the 2018 playoff race. With a maximum record of 8-8, the Bills are most certainly on the outside looking in.
