Roundtable Part 1: Where will Bills be seeded in the playoffs?

Probably 100% of Bills fans, if asked before the season, would take a 7-3 record and at least a tie for first place in the AFC East through Week 11. They probably wouldn't quite understand this specific path to 7-3.

A once-dominant defense has not been nearly as good. The running game has been nonexistent. The Bills are getting next to nothing from their tight ends. 

All of that said, they were a fluke "Hail Murray" away from being 8-2. Josh Allen has at times looked like a candidate for MVP. Stefon Diggs leads the league in catches and receiving yards.
