The Buffalo Bills are huge underdogs tonight in primetime. But that won’t stop the fans in Buffalo from enjoying the spotlight.

Tonight has been circled on the calendar for Buffalo Bills fans ever since the 2018 schedule was announced.

The season has not gone as planned, at least for the fans, but that won’t stop everyone in Buffalo from getting rowdy and cheering on the Bills tonight.

Let’s start with the inactive players for tonight’s showdown against the New England Patriots:

No surprises here once again. Josh Allen and Trent Murphy remain the big names on the list, but at least the team will have LeSean McCoy.

The Bills are in primetime which means fans all around the country can tune it to witness what could be one of the top upsets of the entire season. It may seem unlikely, but the Bills did march into Minnesota and dominate the Vikings. So let’s play the game before counting them out.

Use this post throughout the game to interact with other Bills fans by participating in the comments section at the bottom of the article. Maybe you’ll meet a lifelong Internet friend.

The trade deadline being tomorrow means tonight could be the final time fans see certain players in a Bills jersey. McCoy appears to be staying put, but a big night out of Kelvin Benjamin could mean the receiver is on the move tomorrow afternoon.

Next. 5 potential trade targets as the deadline approaches. dark

The Bills are not favored in any way for this game. But it’s Monday night and the hype is real, so I’ll go ahead and say they keep this one close. To avoid any freezing cold takes, I’ll leave it at that.
