FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Buffalo Bills naturally hoped that their regular-season finale against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium had playoff implications. But for the 15th season in a row, the Bills have been eliminated from playoff contention, as a result of losing at Oakland on Sunday. They have the longest current playoff drought in the NFL. So the Bills don't have much to play for other than attempting to record their first winning season since 2004.

It’s as close as the team has been to the postseason in a decade, so for all of the players on Buffalo’s roster it was an opportunity in Week 16 that the Bills wanted to capitalize on. When Sunday’s outcome did not yield the result they needed, the sting of missing another postseason cut deep. […]
The Bills had the Raiders in a 3rd-and-22 situation down by two points with five minutes to play. The offense had just finished a seven-play, 83-yard drive going with an up tempo, no huddle approach that was working. If the defense could get off the field, the offense needed only a field goal to take […]
