    Playoffs

    Afc is pretty bad overall.

    Afce - jets done, fins suck.

    Afcn - pit dead, cin sucks, cle sucks.

    Afcs - they all suck.

    Afcw - raiders meh, broncos suck.

    With a 2-0 start and the landscape of the AFC, without major injury it would be a big disappointment if the bills don't get a wildcard. With a defense like ours, we could go deep that time of year.

    More about the AFC as a whole. It's garbola.

    8 wins might get a wild card this year. There's a lot of bad teams in the AFC

    Barring major injury, yes.

    A lot of those bad teams play each other, racking up wins

    That's a good point. I still don't see that many finishing with more than 8 wins though. I'm far too lazy to try and figure it out, however.

    Houston

    Cleveland

    These are the teams you have to stay above to get a WC playoff spot.

    Forget the division. Patriots will probably go undefeated.

    Re: Playoffs

    FYI, here's how Buffalo's 2-0 starts ended in the 2000's. Notice how they all end with "Missed playoffs"

    2000: Wins against Titans and Packers to begin 8-8-1 season. Missed playoffs.

    2003: Wins against Patriots and at Jaguars to begin 6-10 season. Missed playoffs.

    2008: Wins against Seattle and at Jaguars to begin 7-9 season. Missed playoffs.

    2011: Wins at Chiefs and against Raiders to begin 6-10 season. Missed playoffs.

    2014: Wins at Bears and against Dolphins to begin 9-7 season. Missed playoffs.

    Re: Playoffs

    Also, just a reminder of the last several seasons (many of which had a good start):

    2014 :: at one point... 5-3 [ ended 9 - 7 ] // ( started 2-0 )
    2015 :: at one point... 3-2 [ ended 8 - 8 ]
    2016 :: at one point... 4-2 [ ended 9 - 7 ] // ( 0-2 then 4 wins in a row )
    2017 :: at one point... 5-2 [ ended 9 - 7 ] // ( started 1-1 ) -- Playoff drought ended, but one and done in the playoffs. =/

    2018 :: 0-2 [ ended 6 - 10 ]
    2019 :: 2-0 [ ????????????? ]

    It's fun to dream, and I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but like many people have said here, let's not get too carried away after only 2 games. )))

    GO BILLS!!!!

    One of the 3 AFC South teams will win their division, so you really only have to stay ahead of 2 of them (1 technically as there is 2 wild card spots).

    Baltimore will probably run away with their division

    San Diego looks like a trash can

    It's meaningless in the sense that what those teams did after going 2-0 has no bearing on what this team will do after going 2-0.

    But it does show that talking about playoffs at 2-0 is a bit absurd. It's too early to mean anything, especially given the low quality of opponent so far.

    I totally agree with you, Opie.

    We're just getting started, and anything could happen...as we've seen.
