The Buffalo Bills are living those lyrics today, they dance and feel like they just can’t lose

You can’t blame the NFL club and #BillsMafia for going to the skies today, however, their endeavors are about more than just “Stayin Alive” because after they destroy the Miami Dolphins, they must they fry bigger fish

They are preparing for their first Super Bowl season since 1993 and are so close that they – and everyone in Buffalo – can give it a try

But they have to prove to themselves that they learned from last season’s wildcard loss to the Houston Texans, and that’s to bury your opponent if you knocked them down who can forget what happened last January ? The bills were 16-0 and still lost 22-19

This is not the time for unrealized expectations Buffalo is a tough city and a tough market, but to lose now would be too bad

This dream season went like no one could have predicted at the beginning of this campaign.But Josh Allen grew up and took the bills on a 13-3 magic carpet ride to win the No. To claim 2 seeds in the AFC is the tallest seed the Bills have enjoyed since 1993

The bills are full of bravado and brio as they focus on Saturday’s wildcard game against No. Prepare 1 7 seeds, the 11-5 Indianapolis Colts The early line preferred the bills of 65 points

But the story tells Buffalo that the playoffs can be like a slap in the face. One misstep is enough and all of the oxygen is quickly sucked out of Buffalo

But momentum is a wonderful thing in sport, it’s hard to establish, but once you get it it’s hard to give it up.Buffalo has won six games in a row and seven of its last eight games, with all seven by 10 Points were won

The Bills Go With A Swing On Their Side To Orchard Park Allen has argued this season that he is a worthy candidate for MVP honors he had 4544 yards, which is the highest in a single season in Bill’s history

Along the way, Allen developed strong chemistry with broad recipient Stefon Diggs, who was 1535 reception yards and outperformed Brandon Marshall the most of a player in his first season with a new team ever

Diggs became the first player in Bills history to win the NFL in terms of catches (127) and yards (1535) and set franchise records for one season in both categories

Thanks to General Manager Brandon Beane for the swing of the trade that landed Diggs after last season’s disappointing wildcard playoff loss to the Houston Texans, Beane lamented the fact that the Bills offense was the team’s Achilles heel

The defense has been sustaining the bills all last season but this season it all came together for the offensive The Bills scored 501 points, the most in a single season in franchise history

In the meantime, the defense has sustained some rifts The Bills have allowed 25 points for the seventh time this season This only happened once in 2019

Even so, the bills should be able to make life miserable for Colt’s quarterback Philip Rivers.But you don’t want to underestimate a 39-year-old QB desperate to shake the day that he can’t win the big one

If the Colts lose, expect him to retire, which should be motivation enough for Rivers who, after 16 years with the Chargers, signed a one-year deal with the Colts

But statistically, Rivers is not in Allen’s stratosphere. Rivers have led the Colts to victories in four of their last five games, but his passing stats don’t jump at you the way they do with Allen, and rivers are no danger to run / p>
Of course, the Colts have run Jonathan Taylor back when it comes to the floor game. On Sunday, the rookie had 30 carry for a single-game franchise high of 253 yards and two touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars

This could be a shootout The Colts have scored 24 points in eight games in a row, making it the longest run in team history

And expect the Colts to put a lot of pressure on everyone On Sunday, the team logged the best six sacks of the season You come in hungry You come in loose too

Indy coach Frank Reich said: “The pressure is not on us. We should be relaxed, we should be aggressive, we should be free to play our best game of the year against a really good football team. In reality, nobody will get us give a chance ”

The bills also don’t know if they’ll have slot receiver Cole Beasley in action – he’s still being watched week after week.Buffalo announced some roster changes on Monday that they activated Tyler Kroft from the Reserve / Covid-19 list and WR Tanner Gentry and Kenny Stills signed by the training team

At the end of the day a No. 2 seed like Buffalo should have no problem getting a No. Beat 7 seeds like Indianapolis But the weather makes for a strange brew sometimes But the weather doesn’t look like it will matter on Saturday

In other words, no drifting snow. The early forecast applies to partly sunny skies, little wind and temperatures around the freezing line
