Buffalo Bills will play the Indianapolis Colts in the early slot on Wild Card Saturday

Frank Reich returns to Buffalo

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 clinched the two seed earlier Sunday, but had to wait for the late games to be over to see who they would face Wild Card weekend. It looks like the Indianapolis Colts are coming to town to face the Bills.

Heading into the late games, the only way the Bills would face the Colts was if Indianapolis and the Tennessee Titans both won their games. The Jacksonville Jaguars hung tight with the Colts, but ultimately Indianapolis prevailed.

The Titans and Texans battled, and when Houston tied the game late we thought it was going to overtime. Then Ryan Tannehill hit A.J. Brown deep, and the Titans doinked it through the uprights to win the division.

Now Colts head coach Frank Reich will return to Buffalo for the Wild Card round. Reich quarterbacked the Bills to a memorable Wild Card victory. Hopefully, he can help Buffalo win another next week.

Late Sunday night, the NFL announced that the matchup would be the early game on Saturday. So it’s 1:05 p.m. EST on January 9.
