If there were any doubts about how the Buffalo Bills would approach their Week 17 game, Josh Allen seemed to erase them this afternoon.
Allen and the Bills have already wrapped up the AFC East, but still have something to play for this Sunday. If they beat the Miami Dolphins, they will be the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs.
That doesn’t guarantee a bye like it did before the postseason expanded to seven teams, but it does mean Buffalo would have home field advantage against every other team in the conference except the Kansas City Chiefs.
Obviously, this could come in handy. For that reason, it seems like the Bills will play to win, rather than rest starters and key players, this weekend.
Allen made that clear with his comments to reporters today.
“We’ve put ourselves in a position where we can go out next week and get that 2 seed.”

While the Bills are playing for seeding, the Dolphins have even more at stake. At 10-5, they need to win in order to clinch a Wild Card berth.
Kickoff for this pivotal game will be at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
