The Dolphins (now 6-3) lost to the Bills (currently 5-3) earlier this season, so Buffalo holds the head-to-head tiebreaker. If Buffalo can match Miami at 6-3, the Bills move into first.
The Bills entered the weekend in control of almost every playoff scenario. They can defeat the Kansas City Chiefs to overtake them. The Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars both have two losses on the year, but they play each over in the middle of December.
