How Have Bills Fared In December Games Since 2013?

Fact Checked by Jim Tomlin

The Buffalo Bills enter the final weekend of November 6-5 and sitting on the wrong side of the NFL postseason bubble. The postseason race is heating up for NFL teams and Ontario sports betting, with Buffalo half a game behind the Houston Texans and Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC race for the final wild card spot.

The current four-year playoff run is on the line for the Bills in the final full calendar month of the league’s regular season. After this Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Bills have a bye week to start December, perhaps helping a team that has been hit hard by injuries. The final month of the calendar year begins for the Bills with a road clash at Arrowhead Stadium against the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 10. The Eagles are atop the Super Bowl odds board at major Ontario sportsbook apps, with the Chiefs either joining them as co-favorites or trailing very close behind.
