1. The Buffalo Bills are coming into the playoffs hot

The Buffalo Bills are in a fascinating situation where they could make the playoffs as the two-seed, or they could miss the playoffs altogether. They have to beat Miami to make the playoffs, and if they do, they will be a dangerous two-seed. If the Ravens and Bills are the one and two, they will likely end up being the two who play in the AFC Championship game. 

If Miami is the two-seed, Ravens fans want to see them over Kansas City. If Kansas City is the three and Buffalo is the two, it will be a game where Ravens fans are divided into who they want to see.

Mahomes and Kansas City have the playoff magic, but the Buffalo Bills have the hot streak. They have won four straight games coming out of their bye week. They beat both Kansas City and Dallas during this win streak. They have playoff experience, their defense is gelling, and Josh Allen is one of the few quarterbacks who can go blow for blow with Lamar Jackson.

The Baltimore Ravens may hurt the Bills by resting their starters against Pittsburgh. If Buffalo loses Sunday, they may miss the playoffs if Pittsburgh beats the Ravens' backups. Ravens fans should root for Miami to win that game and potentially end their season.
