Bills advance to divisional round for first time since 1996


The Buffalo Bills advanced to the divisional round for the first time since 1996 with a 27-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts at Bills Stadium on Saturday.

Buffalo will host either Baltimore, Pittsburgh, or Tennessee depending on the outcomes of wild-card weekend. The scenarios are as follows:

· PIT WIN = Bills host the Steelers

· PIT LOSS + TEN WIN = Bills host the Titans

· PIT LOSS + BAL WIN = Bills host the Ravens

Tennessee hosts Baltimore Sunday at 1:05 p.m. on ESPN. Pittsburgh hosts Cleveland Sunday at 8:15 p.m. on NBC.

It will be the first divisional-round game in Orchard Park since Jan. 15, 1994, when the Bills defeated the Los Angeles Raiders en route to a fourth straight Super Bowl appearance. The Bills last divisional playoff game was played in Pittsburgh on Jan. 6, 1996.

The divisional round will be played Saturday, Jan. 15 and Sunday, Jan. 16. Timeslots will be assigned following the conclusion of wild-card weekend.
