The Buffalo Bills were already a long shot to make the playoffs and they didn't get much help on Sunday afternoon. However, their playoff hopes remain alive thanks to a Broncos victory and a home win over the Cleveland Browns. Just how could they still make the playoffs? The Bills would absolutely need to win all of their games and have the following scenarios with these teams occur.

Denver Broncos.

The Broncos are now 8-6 after a home loss to the Patriots. They close the season with games against the Chiefs and Raiders. Here's what the Bills need to have from the Broncos to have a shot.

  • Raiders and Chiefs beat the Broncos in last two weeks of the season.

Miami Dolphins.

The Bills play the Dolphins in a huge home matchup on Christmas Eve next week. The Dolphins currently sit at 9-6 and are currently in the 6th playoff spot in the AFC. Here's what the Bills need from the Dolphins for a playoff berth.

  • Dolphins lose to Bills in week 16 and Patriots in week 17

Tennessee Titans.

The Titans managed to pull out a road win over the Chiefs in a game that the Bills really needed the Chiefs to win. The Bills now need one of two scenarios to occur with the Titans to have a shot at the playoffs.

  • Titans win division, Texans lose final two games
  • Titans lose to Jaguars and Texans, finish 8-8

Houston Texans.

The Jaguars were in position to defeat the Texans in week 15, but instead Tom Savage led the Jaguars to a comeback and a one point win.

That leaves the Texans at 8-6 and that means the Bills need one of the following two scenarios to occur to have a shot.

  • Texans win last two games, win AFC South, Titans lose final two games, finish 8-8
  • Texans lose to Bengals and Titans, finish 8-8

Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens hold the head to head tiebreaker over the Buffalo Bills and that makes the Eagles loss to the Ravens on Sunday even more painful.

Now the Bills need the following to occur to still have a shot at the playoffs.

  • Ravens lose to Steelers and Bengals, finish 8-8

Indianapolis Colts.

The Colts are surprisingly still in the playoff race at 7-7. The Bills need one of the following scenarios to occur if they want to break their 16 year drought and make the playoffs this season.

  • Colts win final two games, Titans and Texans lose final two games, Colts win AFC South at 9-7
  • Colts lose one of final two games against Raiders or Jaguars

The Bills need a lot to happen for them to make the playoffs, but they do have a chance if they manage to win out this season. Fans can only hope that all of this happens and the Bills somehow make the playoffs in 2016.
