Buffalo Bills 35, Chicago Bears 13: Rapid recap and notes

 The Buffalo Bills once more hold the AFC East title.

To celebrate their third division title in a row, the Buffalo Bills will remain in the Second City after defeating the Chicago Bears 35-13 on Saturday.

Buffalo hasn't won a divisional title in as long as the Bills did from 1988 to 1991, when they won four AFC East titles in a row.

However, NFL Network's Stacy Dales reported after Saturday's game that the Bills will remain in Chicago overnight because Buffalo's airport will remain closed until Monday morning due to inclement weather.

Sean McDermott, the Bills' head coach, told reporters that the plan was to fly to Rochester, New York, on Sunday morning.

In six seasons, McDermott has led the Bills to five playoff appearances, four straight postseason appearances, and three division titles in a row.

The preseason Super Bowl favorites have rebounded from a two-game skid in November with a six-game winning streak, which has Josh Allen and co. clicking at an opportune time—perhaps as important as any title-winning designation at this point.

The 12-3 Bills will now focus on keeping the No. 1 position in the AFC. 1 seed and the accompanying bye in the first round Since 1993, when it reached the final of its four Super Bowl appearances in a row, Buffalo has not qualified as the top seed for the playoffs.

With their most recent AFC East title secured, the Buffalo Bills are riding high into their final regular-season games against the Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots.
