The Buffalo Bills haven't been to the playoffs since 1999, but in Buffalo no one seems to care about that because at least one player thinks they might be on the brink of something special.

Running back C.J. Spiller certainly thinks his team can be back to the days of the early 1990s when the Bills were regularly competing (and losing) in the Super Bowl.

"We split with New England. We had the Giants on the ropes. We are close to being a Super Bowl team," Spiller said to NFL Sirius XM Radio. "We have to protect the ball."
