It’s only been three games and Buffalo’s regular season schedule gets consierably more challenging following their Week 4 matchup with Cincinnati. That’s why this stat is one that Bills fans hope their team is a part of come Jan. 2nd.
Since 1990, 75.9 percent of teams that started 3-0 made the playoffs. Those are odds that most Bills fans will take in a second. Of course the odds are even higher if a team goes 4-0, with the percentages in the low 80’s.
Of course caliber of opponent is going to have a lot to say about just how successful the Bills are in the win column and over the next five weeks following Bills-Bengals Sunday, Buffalo will take its run through the NFC East with a Jets game at home mixed in.
Confidence and momentum can be powerful assets to have, but these wins the Bills have stacked up early are likely to be crucial come early January, especially if tiebreakers come into play knowing all three wins are AFC conference victories.
