9. Buffalo Bills (10)

Hosting a struggling team for the most part in the Denver Broncos basically seemed like a gift for the Buffalo Bills in Week 12, which turned out to be exactly the case.

In what can be best described as an easy victory, the Bills holding off the Broncos 20-3 helped Buffalo improve to 8-3 on the season, and continue to make a case for earning one of the Wild Card spots in the AFC.

Even though the Bills could technically still win the division title over the New England Patriots, if history has anything to say about the AFC East, Tom Brady and company will have little trouble finishing on top once again.

But even if Buffalo eventually secures one of the Wild Card spots, this team seems to have the talent on both sides of the football to make plenty of noise come January if the opportunity happens to present itself.

Normally, the Bills are known to have a top defense in the NFL, but Josh Allen leading the offense with a strong rushing attack could turn out to be a major difference-maker for Buffalo.

With Buffalo having a shorter week due to a Thanksgiving Day meeting with the Dallas Cowboys, if the Bills can win for the fourth time in five games, it will only make their playoff chances that much stronger.
