Rested and ready for the season's final leg, the Bills returned to practice Monday after the bye week, still with an outside shot at the playoffs.
Heading into Sunday's matchup against Atlanta up in Toronto, the Bills are 4-7, which is just one game out of the last wild card spot. They'll have to surpass the eight teams currently ahead of them for that position.
Likley needing to win their final five to have a chance, the Bills are simply focusing on the 2-9 Falcons.
"I think you've got to be careful at this time of year. I think a lot of people are going to be talking about that, and I think it really pulls away from the core of what you want to get accomplished. I think you can find yourself talking about that more and losing sight of the fact that you're playing a good Atlanta Falcon team coming up," said head coach Doug Marrone.
"We're all excited but once again it comes down to execution. We've got to win games. We won one last week, and we've got to be able to stack them, so we've got to go out here in Toronto and play against these Falcons and hopefully get this W," said wide receiver Stevie Johnson.
Johnson returned to practice after missing last game with a groin injury. Rookie Robert Woods was also back on the field. He sat out the last two games with a sprained ankle.
