Believe it or not, the Bills are “in the hunt.”
That phrase has made fans cringe throughout the years, especially with the recurring heartbreak as the team tried to snap a long postseason drought.
But after snapping the drought last year, the Bills, who have a 3-7 overall record, still have a chance to make it consecutive appearances in the postseason and are just two games back of a playoff spot.
“You never know what can happen with the rest of teh games this season,” safety Jordan Poyer said Tuesday. “If you look at the front half of our schedule, all of those games were really tough to play and now we’re coming back on the back half of the schedule with four of six at home. All winnable games if we just go out there and execute.”
“We know if we come out Sunday and play like we know we can play and get this victory it’s a stepping stone to the playoffs,” added right tackle Jordan Mills.
Of Buffalo’s final six games only one opponent has a winning record — the Patriots (7-3).
The Jaguars are 3-7, the Dolphins, who the Bills play twice, sit at 5-5 overall while the Lions are 3-6.
A lot would have to go right for the playoffs to come into focus, and statistically Buffalo has a 1-percent chance at making it a reality.
But, hey, it’s still a chance.
