    Re: Week 14 Buffalo Bills rooting interests

    Buffalo Bills (7-4) over New England Patriots (8-4)
    Monday Night Football
    Line: Bills by 3


    What a huge game for the Bills. If Buffalo can at least split the season series with the Patriots, they have a good chance of being the AFC East champ. A sweep gives them a strong possibility of the one seed and a bye in the first round of the playoffs. It starts here, where Buffalo just needs to beat a rookie quarterback to prove they are still the top dog in the division.


    Pittsburgh Steelers (5-5-1) over Baltimore Ravens (8-3)
    Sunday, December 5, 4:25 PM Eastern
    Line: Ravens by 4


    The current top seed in the AFC is only one game ahead of Buffalo right now. A Bills win and a Ravens loss puts the Bills ahead of Baltimore based on conference record, though the Titans would still be ahead for the one seed of Buffalo in a three-way race. The Bills’ chances of making the playoffs go up with a Ravens win by continuing to knock down Pittsburgh, but that’s the Wild Card race and we are still interested in the playoff seeding for division champs right now.

    Re: Week 14 Buffalo Bills rooting interests

    Washington Football Team over Las Vegas Raiders (6-5)
    Sunday, December 5, 4:05 PM Eastern
    Line: Raiders by 2.5


    The Raiders have been flying under the radar, and while they have a tough stretch of division games to finish out, they are just a game back of the Bills. Washington could provide some breathing room here in the Wild Card and seeding races.


    Houston Texans (2-9) over Indianapolis Colts (6-6)
    Sunday, December 5, 1:00 PM Eastern
    Line: Colts by 9.5


    A team with a head-to-head tiebreaker is not something we want to deal with. The Colts are hot, but perhaps a divisional opponent can summon up the fortitude it takes to beat them like they did to the Titans a couple weeks ago.

    Los Angeles Chargers (6-5) over Cincinnati Bengals (7-4)
    Sunday, December 5, 1:00 PM Eastern
    Line: Bengals by 3


    This is a tougher call than it should be. Right now, Cincy is ahead of Buffalo but if the Bills lose and the Chargers win, all three teams will be among a group of contenders tied at 7-5 with tiebreakers coming out of our ears. Cincinnati has a really good AFC record right now, so we need them to get some losses in the conference in case they win their division or if the Bills fall into the Wild Card race. We’re not ready to gift them a playoff spot just yet, but the New York Times Playoff Machine is right; Buffalo’s chances of making the postseason go up if Cincy wins.


    Denver Broncos (6-5) over Kansas City Chiefs (7-4)
    Sunday Night Football
    Line: Chiefs by 9.5


    Buffalo’s chances of making the playoffs goes up if the Chiefs win because they are in the lead of the AFC West and it would give another loss to a Wild Card contender. At the same time, we want to keep all the AFC West teams at .500 or so until we know more, so we’re rooting for the Broncos. As a reminder, head-to-head tiebreakers only matter in two-way races, but Kansas City’s 2-4 record in the AFC is not going to help them at all.

    Re: Week 14 Buffalo Bills rooting interests

    New York Giants over Miami Dolphins (5-7)
    Sunday, December 5, 1:00 PM Eastern
    Line: Dolphins by 4.5


    Those pesky Dolphins are 5-5 against teams that don’t feature Josh Allen and they’re on a roll. It’s unlikely they win enough games to get near the Bills down the stretch, but until they’re eliminated, we want them gone and buried.


    New York Jets (3-8) over Philadelphia Eagles
    Sunday, December 5, 1:00 PM Eastern
    Line: Eagles by 7


    Speaking of gone and buried, this helps Buffalo’s Strength of Victory tiebreaker and gives the Jets a worse draft pick.

    New Orleans Saints over Dallas Cowboys
    Thursday Night Football
    Line: Cowboys by 6


    Not super important, but it helps Buffalo’s Strength of Victory and Strength of Schedule.


    Minnesota Vikings over Detroit Lions
    Sunday, December 5, 1:00 PM Eastern
    Line: Vikings by 7


    It’s hard to root against the Lions right now, but since they lose to everyone and the Vikings don’t, this outcome will impact Strength of Victory less, even if it’s a longshot to make a difference.


    Los Angeles Rams over Jacksonville Jaguars (2-9)
    Sunday, December 5, 4:05 PM Eastern
    Line: Rams by 12.5


    Mathematically, the right call would be to root for the Jaguars. But it’s such a miniscule chance and difference that I would just like to see the Jaguars buried. If I could get a live feed of the flight home after a 50-point loss, I’d pay-per-view it.

    We need a dominate victory over the Patriots on the biggest stage the NFL has to offer.

    Jumping offsides was actually a smart play by Baltimore.

    Counting on Denver at KC was never viable, Bills need to handle their business tomorrow. Sweet dreams everyone.
