Thurman Thomas Guarantees Playoffs for Bills

The legendary Buffalo Bills running back guaranteed that the team would make the playoffs in 2015 and end the longest current playoff drought in the NFL.

Playoffs?! Buffalo Bills legend and Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas is talking about playoffs for his former team.

At the Jim Kelly Golf Classic, Thomas spoke with Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News and made the following guarantee:

“I’m buying in,” Thomas told Carucci. “I know I’m not a part of the team, but I’m guaranteeing a playoff spot this year. You can write it down! I don’t know if it’s the sixth seed or the third or whatever, the playoff drought will end this year.”

Buffalo hasn’t made the playoffs in 15 years, but Thomas knows a thing or two about making it to the postseason.  Buffalo made the playoffs 10 times during Thomas’ career with the Bills (1988-1999).

The Bills are fielding one of their most talented rosters in years, so Thomas’ guarantee isn’t far-fetched. If Buffalo gets adequate quarterback play, there’s a terrific chance that the longest current playoff drought in the NFL comes to an end this season.
