The standings were not supposed to look this way in Week Eight. The Oakland Raiders were supposed to be Super Bowl contenders entering 2017, with a Pro Bowl quarterback in Derek Carr and All-World defensive end in Khalil Mack. The Buffalo Bills were afterthoughts in the AFC, thought by many to simply be killing time until the 2018 draft. A funny thing happened once t…

Hello, my name is Tim G., and I'm a Process-aholic. It has been almost 18 years since I last saw a Bills playoff game, but now I can see my way out of this dark tunnel.

It took six weeks, but LeSean McCoy finally found his way into the end zone. It was a score he desperately needed, but also a much-needed touchdown for a Bills team engaged in a field-goal battle with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers throughout the opening quarter.
