I spent my Sunday afternoon by sitting in section 101, row 33 of New Era Field watching the Buffalo Bills defeat the Detroit Lions, 14-13. While not a thrilling game, it was better than I expected to see.

Sunday’s win over the Detroit Lions was the first Buffalo Bills game I had been to in over two years. I cancelled my season tickets after six years and it so happens they then made the playoffs that year, so you’re welcome Bills Mafia.

However, I haven’t missed going to games due to the unruly fans and the product on the field hasn’t been stellar. Plus, I have NFL Sunday Ticket.

From someone that wants the offense to pass more than run, I found Sunday to be a major step forward. The protection from the line, the progression from Allen and the play of both Robert Foster and Isaiah McKenzie were all very pleasing and gave me hope for the future of the team.

As usual, the defense was amazing as they were able limit everyone not named Kenny Golladay and Zach Zenner. Matt Stafford did not have a great day and after a pair of successful drives in the first half, the Lions went silent.

Five things really stood out to me watching the game, the first game that I had been to in over two years. Some good, some bad, but overall a win is a win for the Bills and I am here for the growth of Josh Allen.
