Can the Bills clinch the playoffs if they lose tonight?

Is there any scenario that has them clinching even with a loss?

    They needed to win one of their remaining three games, so had they lost to the Steelers, they could not have clinched until next week at New Engalnd, which is highly unlikely, leaving them the Jets at home. A lot of people figured it would come down to that game. Now it won't.

    NO.  That is statistically impossible.

    It depends on if they win their last 2 games.

    No.

    They clinch at least a Wild Card with a win.  But if they lose out, the Steelers and Titans could both finish ahead of them, which would leave them in the 7th seed, and out of the playoffs.

    If you mean "can they end up in a playoff spot even after a loss tonight?" then yes.  Losing to the Steelers tonight ties them at 9-7.  Winning at least one more of the next two games leaves them with at least ten wins.  As long as the Titans get one less win out of the next two, the Bills finish no lower than 6th seed.

    --------------

    Now that they won, they have clinched at least a Wild Card spot.

    If the Patriots lose out, the Bills win the AFC East and the Patriots get the 5th seed.  Anything else, and the Patriots win the division, and the Bills get the 5 seed.
