1. Josh Allen would like to see this free agent back

The Bills will have some decisions to make this offseason with a number of players' contracts coming to an end this season.

One player who will be a free agent is left guard Quinton Spain. Spain, spent the first four seasons of his career with the Tennessee Titans before moving up north to Buffalo on a one-year deal. He was critical to an offensive line overhaul this past season and proved his worth on the field.

"He's been awesome for us. Just his mindset, his attitude, the way he plays, he brings a fire. He's a really good dude, too," Allen said. "I love him and I wish we'd get him back too. I know it's the nature of the business. If I had a say, we'd have him back."

Spain played every down for the Bills offense and was flagged just twice this season. 

Continuity will be key to Buffalo's offensive line getting better. Spain is the only starting offensive lineman not under contract for 2020 and has stated he would prefer to get a deal done before free agency officially begins in March.

2. Bleacher Report picks this college player to answer Buffalo's biggest draft-day need

Heading into the draft, Bleacher Report says this 6-4 USC product can help the Bills next season.

You won't find Michael Pittman Jr. in the first round of many mock drafts. He'll need a strong showing at the NFL Scouting Combine to elevate his stock. Even if Pittman isn't a first-round pick, the Buffalo Bills should set their sights on the 6'4", 220-pound wideout.

The Bills top two receivers are John Brown (5-11) and Cole Beasley (5-8). Pittman can be another target for Josh Allen and has already proven himself with a 101-catch, 1,275-yard and 11-touchdown senior season at USC.

Pittman isn't a burner on the perimeter. He's a possession receiver who fights through coverage and moves the chains on crucial downs. Until one of the Bills tight ends flashes consistently in the passing attack, quarterback Josh Allen needs a big target at wide receiver.

In 2019, the Buffalo Bills celebrated their 60th season as a franchise by going 10-6 in the regular season and clinching the AFC's fifth seed. It is the second time in three seasons under Sean McDermott that the Bills have qualified for the playoffs, and was a great way to celebrate the 60th season of the Buffalo Bills and the 100th season of the NFL.

3. Bills break broadcast records, again

The Bills may have lost, but they won again in attracting a national audience.

ESPN announced that the Saturday afternoon Wild Card game between Buffalo and Houston is the most-viewed NFL Wild Card game ever on ESPN and ABC.

The broadcast peaked with 35,450,000 viewers and is the most-viewed Saturday afternoon NFL Wild Card game since 2014.

This is the third time this season Buffalo was put on a national stage and brought in a huge audience. When the Bills played the Steelers on Sunday Night Football, NBC Sports announced it was the No. 1 primetime television show for the entire week and four million more tuned in, compared to Buffalo's last Sunday Night Football game in 2007.

The Bills and Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game was the most watched CBS Thanksgiving Day game in 27 years.
