The Bills slipped to 5-5, putting their playoff hopes in jeopardy with the potential of missing the postseason if the regular season ended today.

Quarterback Josh Allen expressed urgency, saying “We’ve got to have some urgency now.”

The Bills have a tough stretch ahead with eight games remaining, including matchups against four playoff teams from last season.

According to a projection by Upshot, the Bills have a 19% chance to make the playoffs and only a 1% chance to win the Super Bowl.

Bookmakers have the Bills at +200 odds to make the playoffs, and -250 odds to miss the postseason, as per a prop bet by DraftKings.

Bills Mafia Whacked Dorsey

Dorsey’s departure came after the Bills’ offensive struggles following the departure of former offensive coordinator Brian Daboll last season. Dorsey, who was the quarterbacks coach under Daboll, was promoted to offensive coordinator when Daboll left.

The Bills named Joe Brady as the interim offensive coordinator, following his previous experience as the OC of the Carolina Panthers under former head coach Matt Rhule.

Buffalo’s Scoring Woes

The Bills started this season strong but have struggled offensively to replicate last season’s success, particularly in scoring. They currently have the #8 scoring offense in the league, averaging 26.2 points per game.

The team’s once potent offense has not delivered in key moments, leading to close games and an inconsistent performance over the past six games.

The MNF debacle resulted in a loss against the Broncos, further contributing to the team’s scoring struggles.

Bills Dipping on the Futures Market

The Bills have a challenging schedule ahead, facing several tough opponents in the coming weeks. They also face an uphill battle in the AFC East, with the Dolphins emerging as the favorite to clinch the division.

As a result of their recent struggles, the Bills’ Super Bowl and AFC Championship odds have taken a hit, with the team now facing longer odds for postseason success.

Upcoming games against the Jets and Eagles will test the Bills’ ability to turn their season around and remain in the playoff hunt.

Betting markets currently favor the Jets to cover the spread in their upcoming game against the Bills, given Buffalo’s 3-7 record against the point spread this season.
