Buffalo Bills fans would rather have a Lombardi Trophy than an an Oscar. But surely, the Bills Mafia wouldn't snub the Academy. A new comedy based on a long-time Bills fan may generate some familiar laughs. Whether or not it is Oscar worthy, fans will have to find out later this year when the new movie hits the big screen.
As times change, NFL teams are putting more emphasis on their back-up quarterback situations. Rookie QB Brock Purdy famously took the San Francisco 49ers to the NFC Championship game, after replacing two injured Niners play-callers during the season.
As the NFL continues to spread its brand across the world, the regular season games played on the other side of the Atlantic have skyrocketed in popularity. In January the league announced that the Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots will each play international games during the 2023 regular season.
The NFL announced their international "home" teams for the 2023 season on Thursday. Amongst the announced teams are the Buffalo Bills. The Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots were also designated as home teams for the upcoming season. The international games appear to be a revenue generating machine for the NFL owners and some cool destinations for some of the league's most enthusiastic fanbases...like Buffalo!
A few jabs at an opposing fanbase can always be fun, especially when you have history on your side. Kansas City Chiefs' fans had to feel particularly confident going into Sunday's game vs. the Buffalo Bills, with their team being victorious in three of the last four meetings between the two AFC powerhouses. That confidence obviously only ballooned when Chiefs' quarterback Patrick Mahomes ended the Bills magical Super Bowl quest in a matter of 13 seconds last January. Well, sometimes over-confidence backfires.
