The preseason win total was eight. Last year's win total was eight. Had New England not pulled Tom Brady to rest him for its upcoming playoff run, the 2014 Buffalo Bills' win total probably would have been eight. This season the Bills have never been more than two games above or below .500.
I wrote it last week. The existence of the .500 team is such that when you reach this point of the NFL season, all a win does is make it necessary that you keep winning. Beat the Bengals last week? Congratulations. Now do it again.
