Saturday Sports Update

Top left: Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott speaks with the media on Friday ahead of his team's game against the Miami Dolphins.  The last time the Bills were still in the playoff hunt entering Week 17 was in 2004, and McDermott told reporters that a playoff berth would be great for Western New York and Bills fans.  Tomorrow's Bills-Dolphins game kicks off at 4:25 PM.  Image from buffalobills.com
