The Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins will meet in a huge Week 18 matchup with playoff implications. The Bills will need to win to ensure their place in the playoffs. While the Bills may still make the playoffs if they lose, the franchise would prefer to take matters into their own hands.

Josh Allen has been suffering from a neck issue. Allen experienced a stinger in Sunday’s win over the Patriots, leaving his neck hurting. He made an announcement today that will have an impact on the rest of the Bills’ season.

Before the Buffalo Bills’ game against the Miami Dolphins, quarterback Josh Allen provides an update on his neck injury.

According to Joe Buscaglia, Bills beat reporter:

When asked about his injured neck, QB Josh Allen said:

“It’s fine. “All set.”

Prior to Wednesday’s walk-through, McDermott mentioned that Allen was still sore. Allen, like everyone else on the 53-man roster, is anticipated to participate in some capacity during the day’s practice.
“I anticipate him playing,” McDermott stated during a press conference.

Allen finished 15-of-30 throwing for 169 yards and two touchdowns against the Patriots, while also collecting 44 yards on 11 runs.

On Sunday, the Bills have a lot on the line.

If the Bills lose to the Dolphins, they will be eliminated from the playoffs. According to CBS Sports, the Buffalo Bills face two very different outcomes as the regular season comes to a close. One possibility is that they will be the No. 2 seed in the AFC and will open the playoffs at home next week. Another option would see them at home next week, but on their couch, watching the other playoff teams as they are eliminated.

If the 10-6 Buffalo Bills defeat the 11-5 Miami Dolphins in Week 18, they will not only make the playoffs, but also win the AFC East.

If they lose, they will be dependent on the results of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars, as well as the Houston Texans’ game against the Indianapolis Colts.

 

 

A couple things must happen for the Bills to be eliminated from the playoffs.

First, the 9-7 Steelers must upset the 13-3 Baltimore Ravens, who have already clinched the No. 1 seed. While that may appear to be a stretch, the Ravens will almost certainly rest numerous starters for the majority, if not the whole game. Baltimore just defeated the Miami Dolphins 56-19.

The Jaguars, who are 9-7, would also need to beat the Tennessee Titans, who are 5-11. The Jaguars are coming off a 26-0 victory against the Carolina Panthers, while the Titans were defeated by the Texans 26-3.

The final element of the jigsaw is that the game between the Texans and the Colts cannot conclude in a tie. It makes no difference who wins when they square off on Saturday.

When the Bills face the Dolphins on Sunday Night Football, they will need to bring their A-game.
