    Thumbs up Win A Playoff Game Or 4..Next Goal

    What was it..1995 Bills who last won in the playoffs ? The next step in the ladder..agreed ?

    I don't want to be like the Bengals Dalton going 1 and done several times in a row. Ugh...

    The thing is, winning 9 this year may be more impressive than last years Bills who won 10 of the first 14. Tougher schedule.

    But if they can take care of business in the division..we'll see. I'll believe it when we beat the Pats.

    Re: Win A Playoff Game Or 4..Next Goal

    I definitely think this year's schedule is harder and we will win fewer games. But the good news is that the rest of the division is weak and has to play mostly the same rough schedule. I think we might be able to win the div at 8 or 9 wins and at least GET a home playoff game.

    Whether or not we'll be able to win it- or whether or not fans will be allowed- well, that I'm not so sure about.

    Even if we end up with 8 wins, get into the playoffs and win a game, I could be more than happy.

    I can't wait for them to be 6-2 at the midway point so all of the "they aren't really 6-2 because the schedule is weak and they haven't beaten a team with a winning record" talk can start up again.

    We could be 6-2 at the mid point with wins over the Jets 2x, Fish, Raiders, Rams and Titans. And losses to NE and KC.

    Then we still have to play Seattle, SF, NE again and Pittsburgh. If we're 6-2 and the 2 losses are to the best teams on the schedule, there would be no reason to believe we solved the problems with not being able to beat the good teams and no reason to believe we could beat any of those 4 or any team we'd face in the playoffs.

    Titans would be tougher than the Pats.

    Re: Win A Playoff Game Or 4..Next Goal

    I think we can absolutely be a VASTLY better team than last years and win 9 (even 8 maybe) games. Last years schedule was that easy and this years is that hard.

    As long as we get into the playoffs, assuming we are a better team than the 2019 version, we have as good of a shot as anybody.

    I see this roster as much better than it was last year. But getting 10 wins again would be a major accomplishment and a pleasant surprise to me.

    This year our key to the playoffs is winning the AFCE. Something we should be able to do.

    I would watch out for the Jets. Everyone has written them off this year but....

    I don't hate them as much as I hate Patriots, Cowboys, Steelers and Dolphins, but in my eyes they are a better team than the last two years records they have had.

    You never can take a divisional opponent lightly 1st step in winning the division.

    Both sides are extra fired up to beat the hell out of each other.

    You better play those contests at a playoff level or you won't be in the playoffs.

    These games count as two each and must be treated as such.

    This is also very true. No one wants to play us. There's about 5 teams on our schedule this year that i'd rather not play either but hey, to be the man you've got to beat the man!

    Wow.

    I think the Fins have a brighter future than the Jets. The Jets are busy signing 5 years ago players to fat deals and Darnold doesn't handle pressure well. Gase failed badly in Miami.
