The Buffalo Bills are a team on the rise so we want to give fans outside of Bills Mafia three reasons to come root for the team in 2018.
If you are reading this, you may be looking to select an NFL team to cheer for this upcoming 2018 season. Well, look no further than the pride of Western New York, the Buffalo Bills.
The Buffalo Bills have had a long outstanding tradition of fan support from not only the general New York area, but as of late, the Bills have become a global brand that is recognizable across the world.
The phrase “circle the wagons” has become a lifestyle for Bills supporters worldwide and with all of the recent changes that have happened to the Bills in the offseason, here are the top three reasons to cheer for the Bills this season.
1. Josh Allen
This one is a given…sort of. There is no doubt that there will be thousands upon thousands of eyes on the first-round draft pick this season. Though Allen may not have the same “it” factor as No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield, he will still be an electric talent to watch this season.
Coming out of Wyoming, Allen was praised for his arm strength but ridiculed due to some of the inefficiencies he has as well. Love the pick or hate the pick, Allen is poised to be the first franchise quarterback in Buffalo in quite some time.
Coming off the team’s first playoff appearance in what seems like forever, the Bills will be doing whatever it takes to get back to the playoffs. With players like Kyle Williams having his first taste of the playoffs, Bills new and old will be chomping at the bit to get that taste back in their mouths.
Though the team did not get the playoffs all entirely on their own, (thanks Cincinnati), the Bills are looking to make a push during the regular season to make the playoffs on their own dime this season.
3. The fans
Yes, we smash tables from time to time. But the fans of the Buffalo Bills are so much bigger than that. Buffalo has a love for their Bills and their Bills have a love for their fans. In very few cities scattered around the United States, and arguably around the world, do teams and communities have such a close-knit relationship.
Win or lose, Bills fans are at New Era Field tailgating until kickoff and conversing about the game until the next one arrives. Being a Bills fan is more about following a team, it’s about following a city.
