AFC Playoff Picture: Buffalo Bills tied for best record after four games

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

Week 4 is in the books and not only do the Buffalo Bills have a two-game lead in the AFC East following their most recent win, they are tied for first in the entire conference.

On Monday night, the Los Angeles Chargers defeated the Las Vegas Raiders so both teams are 3-1. They join a logjam of teams with that record atop the AFC. The Cincinnati Bengals, Baltimore Ravens, Denver Broncos, and Cleveland Browns join Buffalo, Vegas, and L.A.

A huge game in the conference landscape looms for Sunday night when the reigning champs of the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs, host the Bills. Buffalo lost convincingly to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game in January.

Here are the complete AFC East and AFC Playoff Rankings as of Tuesday morning:
