The Buffalo Bills need to win and get help to secure a playoff berth. The Dolphins have lost seven of their last nine games.(Associated Press)
The Buffalo Bills still have a shot at earning a playoff berth, but they multiple scenarios to play out in their favor. To begin, they must defeat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday (1:25 p.m. PT/4:25 p.m. ET, CBS, DirecTV).

The Bills (8-7) playoff chances took a hit following their 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 16. The Bills were outscored 27-3 in the second half and now must defeat the Dolphins and get plenty of help in the form of losses by the Tennessee Titans and the Los Angeles Chargers.
Miami (6-9) coach Adam Gase said Jay Cutler will start at quarterback, and Cutler’s appearance might be his last in a Dolphins uniform. Cutler is playing on a one-year, $10 million contract he signed after Ryan Tannehill suffered a season-ending knee injury during the preseason. Tannehill is expected to make a full recovery and Cutler has said he would only return if he’s going to be the starter. That seems unlikely in Miami.
