The Buffalo Bills know they are going back to the playoffs for the fourth straight year after their victory over the Miami Dolphins on Saturday night but that is only the first step in what they hope to achieve this year. The focus now turns to winning their third straight AFC East title and hopefully securing a first-round bye with the first seed in the AFC.

For the Bills to get there, they will need to likely win out the rest of the regular season and the next step is a road game against the Chicago Bears. The Bears are heading towards a Top 5 draft pick at 3-11 and enter this game with a seven-game losing streak and losing 10 of their last 11 games.

While the Bears have not found much success this season, this is a perfect example of a trap game for the Buffalo Bills and they can’t overlook Chicago. The Bills next week will play the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football in a game that likely decides who gets that first seed in the playoffs so it would be understandable for them to look ahead.

Final Score Prediction: Buffalo Bills 27, Chicago Bears 17

For what has seemingly been a weekly theme, the Bills once again find themselves dealing with the weather. The team is traveling to Chicago a day early to try and avoid the weather and while the snow appears to be ending before kickoff, it will still be bitterly cold with wind during the course of the game.

While this has been a constant theme dating back to mid-November when they moved the Browns game to Detroit, the good news is that it hasn’t really impacted the Bills as they have won their last five games. During this stretch, the Bills have found new ways to win and this week should be no different as they are able to extend their win streak and get one step closer to some of those playoff goals.
