The Buffalo Bills didn’t even play on Sunday but they were the biggest winners in the AFC. With the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs both losing, the Bills claimed the #1 spot in the conference which means they also sit on top of the AFC East now, which was previously held by the Dolphins. Speaking of the Dolphins, with their loss, they drop down to #6 in the AFC after playing one of their worst games of the season. They will take on the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night.
