Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Buffalo Bills fans clicked from day one. The journeyman quarterback was easy to relate to for the self-proclaimed blue collar fanbase. A deceiving love-affair because Fitzpatrick graduated from Harvard but antics like going shirtless in the stands, while cheering on the Bills, despite below-zero temperatures, made him a Bills Mafia icon for life. Even his buddy quarterback Josh Allen paid tribute Fitzpatrick prior to Thursday's division game vs. the New England Patriots by wearing a #14 Fitzpatrick jersey.
A victory on Sunday at Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots, will put the New York Jets on top of the AFC East with seven wins. With triumphs over the Miami Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills, Robert Saleh and his "all gas, no brake" crew own the needed tie-breakers that have Jets fans salivating for a potential playoff birth. 2010 was the last time Gang Green visited the NFL tournament in January. Now, one man in particular is out to ruin those dreams, as he has many times before. Bill Belichick.
Problems for most of us are relative. So, when a former New York Jets quarterback suggests that Tom Brady has a problem, I immediately rule out that it is an issue on the playing field. In the span of TB12's playing career he has played in 9 Super Bowls. In that same span of time, actually in the last 53 years, the Jets have not played in a single Super Bowl. So, logic leads us to the difficulty being off the playing field.
Get ready Bills Mafia. You have proven time and time again that Buffalo Bills fans are the best fans in the NFL. For the second year in a row, they have decided to put the billboard that they won for being the best outside of Gillette Stadium where they will go head to head for the AFC East with the New England Patriots this weekend.
