The Buffalo Bills are coming off three straight AFC East divisional titles. They feature one of the NFL’s top quarterback-wide receiver duos in Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs. The defense has been among the league’s best for the last three years. Yet despite all of the talent on Buffalo’s roster, some NFL reporters think the Bills have missed their best shot at winning the Super Bowl.

Today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks looks at whether the Bills have seen their Super Bowl window close with back-to-back early exits in the playoffs.

Has Buffalo’s Super Bowl window closed?

The Bills are coming off a disappointing home loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Divisional Round of the playoffs. Since advancing into the AFC Championship game in 2021, the Bills have failed to make it back there, falling in the Divisional Round in each of the last two seasons.

While the Bills will always be competitive with a healthy Josh Allen under center, the challenge of winning it all certainly has gotten trickier with Allen being paid like a top-flight QB and the team being tight against the salary cap. Has the team missed out on its best chance at advancing to and winning its first Super Bowl?
