SI’s King predicts playoffs for Bills

Posted by Chris Brown on August 30, 2012 – 7:41 am

Sports Illustrated’s NFL columnist Peter King in his season preview has the Bills breaking their 12-year playoff drought and qualifying for the postseason in 2012.

King has Buffalo finished second in the AFC East with a 9-7 record and qualifying for the AFC playoffs with the sixth and final seed. What’s interesting is in the Wild Card round he has the Bills facing his predicted third seed, the Kansas City Chiefs and is predicting a 20-20 tie in the game, but the Chiefs advancing in overtime to face the Patriots in the Divisional round. The whole breakdown from SI’s NFL Preview issue is below and will be on newsstands Monday.
