Buffalo Bills eliminated from the postseason following loss

The Buffalo Bills have officially been eliminated from the 2015 AFC playoff field. That's 16 straight seasons without a playoff berth, the longest drought in North American sports. They're on to 2016.

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

It's official: the Buffalo Bills have been eliminated from the 2015 postseason following their 35-25 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday. It extends the longest active streak without a playoff berth in North American sports to 16 seasons. The loss also means they'll finish at or below .500, a regression from their 9-7 mark in 2014.

With the Kansas City Chiefs owning nine wins and a head-to-head tiebreaker, coupled with the New York Jets winning their ninth game of their season on Saturday, the Bills are officially eliminated, and that is without considering the Pittsburgh Steelers, who may also pick up their ninth win today.

Buffalo's two remaining games will be spent evaluating the squad for the future. Is the quarterback position set for the near or long-term future? Which starters need to be replaced on the offensive and defensive lines? Which depth players are worth keeping around? We'll find out as they play out the string.
