Buffalo Bills: All eyes on Kyle Williams in Week 17
Buffalo Bills veteran Kyle Williams is playing in his final NFL game today. There has been a lot of love shown for him already on social media.
The end of the season is here and I can barely believe it.
The Buffalo Bills head into the long offseason later this afternoon, while Kyle Williams begins his retirement at the same time.
Williams announced his decision earlier this week and the team has been sharing love for him social media since he made it clear he was ready to hang up his cleats.
Try watching that without getting goosebumps.
There is still a chance Williams ends up playing in the Pro Bowl, as he in an alternate, so there is a slight chance we see him representing the Bills one more time. But the atmosphere at the Pro Bowl is not remotely close to what it is at New Era Field.
I hope that Williams’ retirement leads fans to pack the stadium today, even though the 5-10 record may have some opting to stay at home and watch. He has given so much to this franchise, he deserves a great send-off.
Moments like this are what stand out in tough seasons like the one Bills fans have witnessed in 2018.
Looking back and seeing the final record won’t bring back any great memories. But fans can always say they remembered watching Kyle Williams’ final game, which is hopefully one in which he makes some memorable plays for the final time.
My hope is that he has a huge sack to clinch the game, thus triggering a minor earthquake due to the cheering in the stands. Or he has a pick-six, which would just be insane.
