Out of their last 7 I see two difficult games for them (Texans and 9'ers) and they play Both of them at home. Colts are semi-difficult, they are on a roll but you don't know which team will show up.
As far as our games, Seattle is the only difficult game I see... they have a very aggressive D and Lynch is running the ball well this year.
See above for Colts.
If our D can tighten up just a little more against the run I can see winning at Least 5 more, possibly 6.
I think the only way we could possibly make it in is a wildcard... and a lot of other teams need to slump going down the stretch.
Can't find my way back home

QB's the Bills play to end the season:
There is no reason we couldnt win out.
5 games @ home (yes, the Seattle game is in Toronto, but is technically a home game), now is the put up or shut-up time for this entire regime IMO.
Seahawks are very good, and we play them on a neutral field in Toronto. Even if the game was in Buffalo it wouldn't matter much.
Rams tied with the 49ers in San Fran, the same team that destroyed us a month ago.
Even though the Dolphins have hit a wall it's still going to be a challenge to beat them even once considering our division struggles, same thing with the Jets.
Honestly the only game left that looks like a 'for sure win' is Jags, but only because they are completely terrible.
If I had to guess we'll probably go win a few more and finish 5-11, but I see zero chance of 9-7 even with a 'softer' remaining schedule.
Last year we played lights out in NY in a game we should have won against the Jets amid losing streak and everybody thought we turned the corner only to still fizzle out and win one more game the rest of the season.
if big ben is out for three or four weeks+ the steelers will have a hard time retaining their current wild-card spot.

That is such a scary thought that we are rooting for the Pats lol
Adopt a Bill T.J Graham
1a (16 From Rams): Keenan Allen WR, Cal/Cordarrelle Patterson WR, Tenn
1b (22 From Rams): Ryan Nassib QB, Cuse/EJ Manuel QB, Florida State
2 (41 Traded to the Rams)
3a (71): Kiko Alonso ILB, Oregon
3b (78 From Rams): Tyrann Mathieu CB, LSU (Risk/Reward scenario here. Might be a little to high for him, but we all know he can play)
4 (105): Shamarko Thomas S, Cuse
5 (143): Hugh Thornton OG, Illinois
Now, for the WC, if we win out... we need alot less help...Cincinnati would have to lose 1 game to a conference team(Pit, Bal, KC, oak, SD) or both NFC games (Dal, Phi). Tennessee would have to lose 1 game against anyone. San Diego would need to lose 2 against anyone. Oakland would also need to lose 1. Considering that Cincinnati plays Oakland and San Diego, and SD and oak still have a game together...2 of those teams will be below the Bills either way..and Tennessee is not going 6-0.
The only real issue for the Bills would be making up 3 games vs. the Colts OR Steelers..since we play the Colts, its essentially 2 games..and if the Colts lose to NE its only 1 game.
I have more confidence that The Colts and Titans will lose another game than the Patriots losing FOUR.
Of course, I do not think the Bills go 7-0, or 6-1..but we are not winning the division at 10-6 anyway.
I'd say 9-7 is obviously not the most likely outcome. It's realistic though.
EASILY win 6 of 7 games in the NFL?
How could anyone even think such a thing about any team?
I've got about as much chance to be the POPE !!!!!
"I personally agree with Mayock. I've said this all year. I can guarantee that there will be a run on qb's in the first. This class is better than most think. They just have the bad "luck" of following last year's crop". I think the only qb's that will be considered at 8 are Smith, Barkley, Wilson, and (maybe) Glennon. quoted by whorlnuts....1/22/13
This is what hurts the most about the loss to the Titans and the Patriots.
If we could have won 1 or both of those games, we could have been set up perfectly for a late season run.
I don't care what anybody says each and every one of our remaining gams we have a great shot at winning.
Even before the NFC West rising to the top a little this season, every one knew our back end schedule wasnt going to be the hardest.
I don't really see it happening to be perfectly honest. The chance we have against these teams depends on us not stabbing ourselves in the foot even just once. That means less turnovers, or none at all, and less yard loss through penalties like we saw sunday. You can't make plays when you lose your 15 yard gain the very next play after. Those type of things are not in any way reliant on the other team; that's 100% just us killing ourselves. And yeah it's the player's poor choices and such like that ... but once again it is the coaching staff that is supposed to see that the team is in the proper mindset and that hasn't happened all year ... or all decade.
I would be surprised if we won 1 game for the rest of the season. My hope is at 0% and utterly non-existent.
Our first or second pick in the draft should be for the O-line ... otherwise it won't matter if you draft Jesus H Christ himself. Just look at that fumble Fitz made on sunday. That wouldn't happen if our O-line wasn't a complete joke which was pretty much the main argument in the debate about Fitz's play last season too and nothing has really changed much since then. That's why my hope is non-existent ... because we really have a hard time healing those old wounds and it just keeps bleeding and bleeding forever and ever.
Just my 2cents.
