The Bills second playoff berth in three years since he's been head coach, the incredible defense, his 10-4 record didn't hurt, and the fact that he was winning with a young quarterback was a big help too.

His work is far from done however.

McDermott still has a chance to lead his team to the first AFC East Championship since 1995.  They will take on the current AFC East champs on Saturday.

The Bills will have to win their last two, and the Patriots will have to lose their last two in order for the Bills to be crowned champs.
