Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills are fighting for their first division title in 25 years, a franchise that is in striking distance now that Tom Brady is no longer there.
The Bills are 8-3, one game ahead of the resurgent Miami Dolphins in the division, but they still have a ton of work to do.
If the Bills were in the NFC East, however, their work would be done already — a point Allen jokingly made on the Pat McAfee Show this week.
“We’re sitting at 8-3, and eight wins doesn’t win the division — unless you’re in the NFC East,” Allen said with a smile. “In all seriousness, coach (Bills head coach Sean) McDermott preaches playoff caliber and our goal is to get into the playoffs. Once you get into the playoffs, anyone has a chance to win it. The easiest way to get into the playoffs is to win your division.”
Unfortunately, the NFC East will not only have one team in the playoffs, but they will get a home game as well.
The combined record of all four NFC East teams are 14-29-1, with the Philadelphia eagles (3-7-1) and Dallas Cowboys (3-8) having the two worst records in the conference.
