The Buffalo Bills did themselves a big favor by going on the road and beating the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon.

The Bills improved to 7-6 on the season with their 20-17 win over the Chiefs. With the win and several other teams losing, the odds of the Bills making the playoffs jumped significantly.

Going into the Kansas City game, the NFL Playoff Simulator from the NY Times gave the Bills only 16% of making the playoffs.


Now that the Bills won, their playoff odds are now at 42%. The Bills control their own destiny and with four games remaining, they still have a good chance at making the playoffs this year.

If the Bills beat the Cowboys, Chargers, Patriots, and Dolphins, they would finish the season at 11-6 and have a 99% of making the playoffs. They could still win the AFC East as well, depending on how the Dolphins finish the season.

If the Bills go 3-1 in the last four games, their odds of making the playoffs would be around 74%.

If the Bills split the last four games and go 2-2 to finish with a 9-8 record, their playoff odds would drop all the way down to 5%.

If the Bills only win one of the remaining four games, they would not make the playoffs.
