The Buffalo Bills are AFC East champions for the second straight year.
The Bills clinched the title with a 27-10 win over the New York Jets in their regular-season finale at Highmark Stadium on Sunday. The Bills defense sacked Jets quarterback Zack Wilson a season-high nine times, including two apiece from safety Jordan Poyer and defensive end Mario Addison.
This is the third time in franchise history that the Bills have won back-to-back division titles, having previously won four straight from 1963 to 1966 and again from 1988 to 1991. Last season marked their first division crown since 1995.
The Bills enter the playoffs as the No. 3 seed in the AFC. They will host either the New England Patriots or the Los Angeles Chargers at Highmark Stadium during Super Wild Card Weekend, depending on the outcome of the Sunday night game between the Chargers and Raiders. The scenarios are as follows:
· LAC win = Bills vs. Chargers
· LV win = Bills vs. Patriots
· LAC/LV tie = Bills vs. Chargers
Super Wild Card Weekend will consist of two games on Saturday (4:35 p.m. and 8:15 p.m.), three on Sunday (1:05 p.m., 4:40 p.m., and 8:15 p.m.), and one on Monday (8:15 p.m.).
