5 Local Spots to See the ‘Must-Win’ MNF Game w Other Bills Mafia
Is tonight's Bills game a must-win?
The Buffalo Bills are in a perfect "get right" spot versus the Denver Broncos at 815 pm on Monday Night Football - but there's a lot of pressure on this team.
While I don't expect the Bills to lose, it's no longer a foregone conclusion that Josh Allen and Company are going to steamroll a team that's ripe for picking.
The Bills were picked by many to at least challenge the KC Chiefs for AFC supremacy, but after a loss last week to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Bills sit at just 5-4 after 9 games, and after tonight's game, the schedule gets insanely tough.
The schedule doesn't do the Bills any favors
Next week, they're home versus the Jets, a game they should win, but you never know. Rivalry games within the division are tough, and the Jets have already beaten the Bills this year - and the Bills have notoriously played down to the level of their competition.
After the Jets, the Bills have two difficult games on the road; at the Eagles, (then a bye week) and then at the Chiefs. Both are winnable, but both are losable as well. Assuming the Bills win tonight, and next week versus the Jets, they can easily be 7-6 when they return home to take on a legit Dallas Cowboys on December 17th.
Lose that game and the Bills could be 7-7, and heading to LA to take on a powerful Chargers team who on any given Sunday (the game is actually on a Saturday), can play with any team in the league.
With all of that being said - and speculated - it's a big game for Bills Mafia throughout the Capital Region and all of New York. Lose tonight, or next week to the Jets, and they'd need some help to even reach the playoffs.
Who would have thought that 9 weeks ago?
