The Buffalo Bills (7-6) rallied from down 21 points on Sunday vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (10-3), only to fall in excruciating fashion, 33-27 in overtime.

With the loss, Buffalo still holds the final Wild Card spot in a crowded AFC playoff picture. Today’s edition of the Bills daily links recaps this close-but-no-cigar comeback attempt—the latest in a long line of Bills losses at the hands of Tom Brady (with some help from the referees).
