The Bills are still in the hunt following a 30-21 victory over wild card for Houston Texans. After some heart breaking losses where the Bills had a lead, they were able to hold onto it and make some big plays when it mattered most. Buffalo was able to capitalize on our three keys to the game in our preview from today, which led them to a convincing win and still in contention for the wild card spot.

JJ Watt only managed one sack, but it was called back after a penalty on the Texans. With that being said, the offensive line did a solid job allowing just one sack which occurred late in the game. The secondary played well allowing Brian Hoyer and DeAndre Hopkins to connect just 5 times, with three of those catches coming in the second half along with a touchdown reception. The Bills forced other players on the Texans roster to beat them and they were unable to do so.
We mentioned the stat where the Bills were 5-0 when Tyrod Taylor threw the ball less than 30 times. You can now add another victory to that stat as T-Mobile was 11 of 21 for 211 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Like last week Sammy Watkins was utilized early. Like his former teammate at Clemson, Watkins also had a touchdown reception and 109 yards on three catches. Charles Clay had the game winning touchdown for the Bills on a forty yard pass after a defensive miscue by the Texans. LeSean McCoy picked up his 3rd 100 yard rushing game as a member of the Bills. It just so happens that all three time, the former Eagle finished with 112 yards.
Now it is time to look ahead. The Bills control their own destiny. Just look at their remaining schedule.
Three games against the NFC, with the final two games of the regular season at home. Can you imagine what the Ralph would be like in a game against the Jets where the winner earns a wild card spot? Pandemonium! I mean look at what quarterbacks the Bills defense is going to go up against.
The immobile Sam Bradford, Kirk Cousins, Matthew fucking Casell, and Ryan Fitzpatrick. Mark my word, the Bills are going to make the playoffs based off the rest of their schedule.
