Key Contributors Towards Bills Playoff Chances

The Bills are led by quarterback Josh Allen, who is one of the best players in the NFL, and after a stellar game against the Eagles, his MVP odds improved to +2000 after Week 12, which is tied for seventh.

Also in the NFL honors conversation, safety Damar Hamlin has a 71.4% chance of winning Comeback Player of the Year after his miraculous recovery from sustaining cardiac arrest on the field vs. the Bengals last season. That number increased after he was active once again in Week 12.

On defense, Buffalo will be led by their defensive line featuring Von Miller, Greg Rousseau, and Leonard Floyd as well as starting safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer. Both dealt with injuries last season.

Looking Ahead: Bills' Playoff Picture

The Bills are expected to miss the playoffs for the first time since 2018, while Buffalo is also not favored to win the AFC East for the first time since 2019.

The Bills are coming off a disappointing season, having been blown out by the Bengals in the AFC Division Round after making the AFC Championship game the year prior.

Buffalo, however, will enter the season without Pro Bowl LB Tremaine Edmunds, who left in free agency to sign with the Chicago Bears. Who starts in his place is yet to be determined, but Tyrel Dodson has been getting the bulk of first-team reps in practice and preseason games.

Do the Bills Have A Chance To Make The Playoffs?

Yes, the Buffalo Bills have a chance of making the playoffs. The Bills sit at a 21.7% chance of making the playoffs.

Are the Bills Out of the Playoffs?

No, the Bills are not out of the playoffs as Buffalo is 6-6. FanDuel is giving Buffalo a 78.3% chance of missing the playoffs, which means for the first time this season, the Bills are expected to miss the playoffs this season.

Where Do the Buffalo Bills Rank in the AFC Playoff Standings?

Buffalo is currently the 10th seed in the AFC playoff standings as the Bills are not in a playoff spot. Buffalo has the eighth-best odds in the AFC to make the playoffs.

Where Do the Buffalo Bills Rank in the AFC Wild Card Race?

The Bills are currently holding onto the eighth seed in the AFC, which is just right outside of the playoffs.

Can the Buffalo Bills Get the No. 1 Seed?

Yes, the Bills still can get the No. 1 seed in the AFC, although it is unlikely. Buffalo is 6-6 and is trailing the likes of the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs. The Bills still play both of them one more time this season. However, at this rate, Buffalo will need to win out and get some help from other teams if they are going to be the No. 1 seed.

Bills Postseason Outlook and Predictions

As long as Josh Allen is at quarterback, the Bills are one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl. However, a knock on offense is at wide receiver, where the Bills do not have a clear-cut No. 2 option behind Stefon Diggs.

The big news for the Bills was the fact they were able to re-sign S Jordan Poyer. LB Von Miller is expected to be back in the first few weeks, which gives Buffalo's pass rush a huge boost. The defense will be intensely watched after it struggled against the Bengals in the playoffs last season, and after losing Pro Bowl LB Tremaine Edmunds in free agency.

Ultimately, Buffalo is one of the most complete teams in the NFL and should be among the favorites to win the Super Bowl and will likely win the AFC East for the fourth straight year.
