The Buffalo Bills playoff drought will continue if USA TODAY's prediction comes to fruition

Nate Davis gives the Bills a chance at making the playoffs.

The Buffalo Bills and their fans haven't been to the playoffs in 16 years. There is a glimmer of hope that the playoff drought ends in 2016 as the Bills may finally have a franchise quarterback and the team is coming off of back-to-back non-losing seasons. However, if Nate Davis of the USA TODAY is correct, Buffalo's playoff drought will continue for another season.

Davis predicted that the Bills would finish the 2016 season tied for second place at 8-8.

Buffalo Bills (8-8): They'll have the final shot at Brady-less Patriots in Week 4 as they enter potentially crucial stretch of five roadies in seven-game stretch. Survive that, and perhaps they'll finally be playoff bound for first time in the 21st century.

Although Davis ultimately predicted the Bills to finish at .500, he gives the team a shot of making the playoffs if they play well over one stretch of the season. The seven games that Davis is referring to has the Bills on the road against the Patriots, Rams, Dolphins, Seahawks, and Bengals with home games against the 49ers and Patriots mixed in. The Patriots road game will feature Jimmy Garoppolo and the Bengals game will come after Buffalo's bye week.
