Bills clinch playoff spot with 17-10 win over Steelers (full coverage)

The Buffalo Bills did it right.

No waiting another game or even two to punch their ticket to the postseason. No leaving anything to chance.

The Bills had their shot Sunday night to win and become no worse than a fifth seed in the AFC playoffs, and they cashed in with a 17-10 victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field. It marks the Bills’ second postseason appearance in the last three years.

The Bills, who improved their record to 10-4 for their first 10-win season since 1999.





The beat goes on for the Buffalo Bills as they look to lock down a playoff spot. They play their next two on the road, starting this Sunday night against a red-hot Steelers team. Pittsburgh has won three in a row and seven of their last eight, after starting the season with a 0-3 record. And this week’s game is a primetime showcase for the Bills and they will play their first Sunday Night Football game since 2007.

All it takes is a win, one win, for the Buffalo Bills to claim a playoff spot. The New York Times Playoff Machine says they’ve got a 95 percent chance to make the postseason now.
