Exciting to see my Bills make the playoffs for the first time this century due to that unreal 4th and long 50 yard TD by the Bengals in the last minute to eliminate the Ravens.  But with McCoy who is responsible for about half the Bills offence out with the ankle injury he got yesterday I don't hold out much hope for the Bills in Jacksonville next weekend.

even with McCoy, both Bills and Titans are long shots anyhow.  Nice to see the Bills in the playoffs but if either of those teams wins even one playoff game, they will have over achieved.

Only thing that comes close for me in sports to CFL playoffs and GC is the NFL playoffs and SB.  Stoked, especially that my second fav team the Bills and my fav team the Viks are in the post-season!  

I guess a Leafs-Habs SC wouldn't be so bad but I'm just more of a gridiron fan than hockey, any way you cut the mustard.

The Bills players (and fans) go nuts watching the Bengals score the winning TD against the Ravens.  Some neat videos of their celebrations at these links.

And very cool of Bills fans to do this as a way to thank Andy Dalton - the Bengals QB - for coming through with that TD pass on the 4th down play to put the Bills in the playoffs. As of last night over 1600 donations totalling over $37,000 donated to his charity by Bills fans.

Fans of the Buffalo Bills had a lot to celebrate as fresh calendars were busted out of the plastic wrap.
Most were almost certainly celebrating the Bills' first playoff appearance after a 17-year drought, but several found time to open their wallets and donate to the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation.
The flood of generosity stemmed from Andy Dalton's game-winning touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd on Sunday evening, which kept the Ravens home and pushed the Bills into the Wild Card round.
"Fans flocked to social media to show their support of Andy and made $17 donations (in honor of ending the 17-year drought) to the foundation," the foundation said in a news release. 

Update: 1600 donors, $37,000! #BillsMafia we can’t thank you enough! This money is going to make a huge impact for seriously ill and physically challenged kids and their families! Keep it coming!!

with the Chargers being one of the teams I cheer for, I would like to send a little "thanks" to the Jacksonville Coaches for having the team basically phone it in.  oughta be a law

We wont get near the SB game but hopefully we can at least eliminate the bills ..then perhaps another steelers beatdown..

There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark.

Pretty much my prediction as well.

Dawg - Sounds like your Jags fans are going to have a lot of company from Bills fans Sunday.  As much as I would love to go to the game - and get out of this -25C ice box, I'll be watching on TV. 

So many Bills fans have been buying tickets that the Bills - Jags game has the most expensive tickets going of the 4 games this weekend with the cheapest tickets going for over $200. Hat tip to RedandWhite who brought my attention to the Bills invasion.

I think the Bills will be staying in Buffalo for a very, very long time! ;)

My predictions for this weekend.  And with my track record I advise betting on the other team.   :)

Kansas City over Tennessee
Atlanta over the Rams
Sadly I have to go with Jacksonville over my Bills
Carolina over the Saints
