R.I.P. Playoff Drought
For the first time since 1999, the Buffalo Bills will be participating in the NFL’s postseason. The Bills were alive going into Week 17 for just the second time during the drought, with 2004 being the other year.
To start, the Bills took care of their own game beating the Dolphins 22-16. Jay Culter played only one series before being relieved by David Fales. Miami coach Adam Gase had previously said that they wanted to get Fales a look in the season finale, but the first quarter entrance was sooner than what most people thought. The big news for the Bills in this one was LeSean McCoy leaving the game with an ankle sprain in the third quarter. His x-rays were negative but his status for next week is still up in the air.
With the LA Chargers winning easily, the only way into the postseason for the Bills was through a Ravens loss. The Ravens actually trailed for most of the game before taking the lead in the fourth quarter. By now, you have probably seen the miraculous ending to that game, which included a 4th and 12 TD throw by Andy Dalton. If you haven’t, I suggest checking it out. One more stop was all that the Bengals needed to finish off the Ravens, and in so doing, send the Buffalo Bills to the playoffs. A miraculous ending to a miraculous regular season for the Bills.
