Jordan Poyer: We know how special it would be to win AFC East at home

The Bills are guaranteed another trip to the playoffs, but they still have some work to do in the final week of the regular season.

A win over the Jets will make the Bills AFC East champs for the second straight year, which is why quarterback Josh Allen believes there will be “no letdown” from the team this weekend. They haven’t won the division title at home since 1995 and safety Jordan Poyer reflected on how long that’s been while discussing what’s in front of the Bills this Sunday.

“I think one of our coaches was talking earlier about his neighbor, a season-ticket holder for 20 years, and it would be the first time he’s ever seen the Bills win the AFC at home,” Poyer said, via Katherine Fitzgerald of the Buffalo News. “We know how special it would be.”

The Bills beat the Jets 45-17 earlier this season and they’ll be heavy favorites to be celebrating another division crown this Sunday.

  1. Does he realize there isn’t a trophy and parade for a division title? It’s a step in the right direction but there is a long ways to go beyond that.

  2. I believe the Jets will make this game close and threaten to win. They probably won’t, but I’m expecting a tough game.

  3. The Jets game is no gimme. Division games rarely are, and the Jets have been making some strides. Wilson has looked much better.

    The Bills haven’t gotten too many opportunities like this over the past 20 or so – being able to lock up the division with a win at home, in the final game. Seize the moment, Buffalo.

  4. I think that this game will dictate how the playoffs go for Buffalo. A strong win and they could go all the way to the SB. A weak showing against the Jets could lead to one and done in the playoffs. This team has been very up and down and they have yet to play their best football!

  5. Sorry but the Bills are too one dimensional to go the SB. Manning’s Colts teams were built the same way and would put up great numbers during the regular season followed by an early playoffs exit. The defense can’t win them games, the can’t rely on the running game consistently, it’s all about Josh Allen. When he has an off day, they struggle or lose.

    True, there isn’t a trophy or parade for an AFC East title. However, there will be such things as a notation on our stadium wall and AFC East Champs hats and t-shirts (I still have my late fathers from 1980).

    As far a step in the right direction – this weekend will not only make back to back AFC East Championships but it will also be the Bills 4th win in a row where they have scored 4 TDs and won each game comfortably by double digits. The Super Bowl Champ is almost always the team that gets hot at the end of the year….
