Buffalo Bills Playoff Scenarios and Chances: Can the Bills Catch the Dolphins in the AFC East?

Few NFL teams are hotter than the Buffalo Bills, who have beaten the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys in back-to-back weeks to move to 8-6 and re-enter the AFC playoff picture. 

However, if the 2023 season ended today, the Bills would still be out of the playoffs, so they have more work to do.

Buffalo Bills Playoff Prospects for Week 16 Update This item was originally published on Saturday, December 23 at 6:30 a.m.,

before to the start of Saturday's games. The results of this week's games are listed below and will be updated throughout the day.

The Bills are the No. 6 seed in the AFC after the first Monday game of Week 16. While the Bills did not receive all of the assistance they required last week,

losses by the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-7) and Denver Broncos (7-7) aided Josh Allen and company in moving up the AFC Wild Card standings.

Buffalo enters Week 16 as the conference's No. 9 seed. Because of their Week 9 victory, the Cincinnati Bengals (8-6) have a head-to-head playoff tiebreaker over the Bills, 

but the Indianapolis Colts (8-6) and Houston Texans (8-6) have the advantage due to their superior records inside the AFC.
