ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - Neither rain, sleet nor snow - and not even Bills tight end Kevin Everett's inspirational return to Buffalo - could prevent the New York Giants from clinching a playoff berth yesterday.
A rediscovered running attack and an opportunistic defense carried the Giants (10-5) past the Bills and the elements in a 38-21 win.
So when the Bills (7-8) visit Lincoln Financial Field next Sunday afternoon (1 o'clock, Channel 3), it'll be a battle of 7-8 teams.
The Bills again proved they're incapable of beating a playoff contender. Six of Buffalo's eight losses this year have come against teams that have qualified for the postseason.
