Donald Trump wants to buy Bills

According to The Buffalo News, billionaire businessman and TV personality Donald Trump is interested in buying the Buffalo Bills and keeping them in western New York. Team ownership is nothing new to Trump, who previously owned the New Jersey Generals of the USFL before the league folded in 1987. Should Bills fans want Trump as an owner? Would Toronto be a better home for the team?

What's next for the Bills?

A somber mood has set in around Buffalo, N.Y. Longtime Bills owner Ralph Wilson died in late March at age 95. Iconic quarterback Jim Kelly is battling oral cancer. And questions about the franchise's future are getting louder and louder. Will the Bills stay in Western New York? The current lease seems to bind them until at least 2020, although there are some worries that the struggling team might try to move before then. What is your take on its future? How soon will it get back to the Super Bowl-contending days of the early 1990s?

The Pittsburgh Steelers might be below .500 on the season, but they looked the better team in their 30-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday night. And they weren't the only losing squad to come up big on Sunday. Both the Minnesota Vikings and St. Louis Rams handed stunning losses to division leaders. Still, every sub-.500 team is eliminated -- or close to it -- from playoff contention this year, meaning it's not too early to look toward 2014.

You know how the NFL goes: One shouldn't assume anything. But -- despite losses by the Indianapolis Colts and Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday -- the top five playoff spots in the AFC have seemed locked up for some time. That last berth, though? The race continues to be heated. Six teams (New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Tennessee Titans and San Diego Chargers) currently are tied for that position, with 5-6 records. Three (Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Oakland Raiders) trail by just one game. Of those nine teams, which is most likely to make the playoffs? Least likely?
