The Buffalo Bills don't play until tomorrow, but Bills fans will be following tonight's matchup between the San Diego Chargers and San Francisco 49ers very closely.
A loss for the Chargers brings the Bills that much closer to a playoff berth. A win for San Diego puts another nail in the Buffalo coffin. Of course, the Bills still have to win on Sunday, but getting some help the night before would be nice. The Bills lost to the Chargers earlier this season, so they would lose a tie-breaker if both teams finished at 10-6.
San Francisco is already out of the playoffs and are only playing for pride. Bills fans are hoping that pride is enough to will the 49ers to a win. Anytime a team has a home game during a prime time slot, there is an extra gear for that team. San Francisco should be a tough match for San Diego, and they will have all of Western New York on their side.
Philip Rivers has been both hot and cold this season. If he doesn't have his best game, the 49ers could be an effective spoiler to their in-state counterpart, giving Bills fans hope of ending the playoff drought.Read more... Join the Conversation...
