Can the Buffalo Bills Snap Playoff Drought?

The Buffalo Bills have gone 17 years since their last playoff appearance, the longest active drought in the NFL, and the longest streak in franchise history.

However, with their win Sunday in the dying seconds over Tampa Bay, the Bills have moved to 4-2, tied for second place in the AFC East, and currently holding down the first wild card slot based on a better divisional record than Miami.

Those of you involved in NFL betting for the season that wagered on Buffalo have to be feeling pretty good right now considering how long the odds were for this team making the playoffs heading into 2017.

On Sunday, rookie cornerback Tre’Davious White — the team’s first rounder this year — played the hero, forcing and then recovering a fumble to set up the game-winning field goal with 14 ticks left on the clock.

It was his first career forced fumble, and a damned memorable one at that. This was a great development for White, after he had looked shaky at times earlier this season (see video below). And if Buffalo goes on to make the playoffs, it could be viewed as a turning point in the team’s season.

New Head Coach Sean McDermott came in with a plan, and the team seems to be buying in, creating a ton of excitement in the land of chemical blazes. Still, regardless of the plan, the players are getting it done on the field, making key plays, and that’s helped turn what many expected to be a rebuilding year into a season that could result in a playoff spot.

Signing free agent placekicker Stephen Hauschka has proved to be a great move so far. After matching his career-high with 33 field goals last year, he’s already booted 14 this season — good for eighth in the NFL, despite the fact the Bills have already had their bye week.

Heading into the season, Hauschka was not considered a starting worthy placekicker in standard sized Fantasy leagues, but he’s worked his way into becoming a top 10 option now.

Considering the Bills’ offense remains suspect, having a dude they can count on to make field goals is huge. As good as Buffalo’s D has looked, it still needs some offensive support to keep putting up Ws.

Given the position the Bills are in, their game this weekend — hosting the Raiders — takes on greater significance than you would have thought heading into the season. Oakland was a playoff team last year, but has struggled to a 3-4 mark early on. However, the return of Derek Carr puts them back on track, so the outcome of this game could be a huge piece of the playoff picture down the line.

We’ll find out more about how real Buffalo’s start is after this game.

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below how you think Buffalo’s season will unfold.

NFL Offseason Report: Running Backs

September 7, 2017 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
Speaking of mileage, Peterson is the biggest name on this list, but he’s stepping into a timeshare situation in a pass-first offense, so it goes without saying his value will be undercut significantly. He led the NFL in rushing as recently as 2014 and drew rave reviews in training camp. Then again, what high-profile signing doesn’t?

2014 NFL Wire Troll All-Stars

December 23, 2014 | by Josh Johnson | Comments (2)
Unbeknownst to the Cleveland faithful, Carr is the leading rookie passer in almost every positive category. Obviously it’s too early to tell but he appears to be a steal as the fourth QB taken (second round) at least comparatively so. If you nabbed Carr this season, he was probably nothing but bye week material and his future ceiling is very weapons dependent. As for this season he was just a QB2 with upside. Solid performances versus San Diego and San Francisco were the highlights for the promising sliver and black signal caller. Even with a B-Squad of WRs, Carr managed 3,100 yards passing as well as 20 TDs to 14 total turnovers. Rookie numbers have and will be in the future much harsher.

The Wire Troll: Surviving the Byes

September 30, 2014 | by Nick Wagner | Comments (3)
Even if Bridgewater is able to play through his sprained ankle he will still be seeing his first action in a hostile environment, and on a short week. Therefore we prefer Bortles in Week Five at home against a suspect Steelers defense.

Start ‘em, Sit ‘em: Jennings Cooks up Turkey Day Treat

November 27, 2013 | by Vaney Hariri | Comments Comments Off
Win, lose, or draw somehow someway the Dallas Cowboys will find a way to give up a huge stat line to someone on the opposing team and this week, we predict that person will be Jennings. He has been running great lately and, Fantasy-football wise, Dallas is the league’s worst at stopping the run. Josh Johnson should love this.
