Buffalo Bills fans are likely snowed in and will be watching the two playoff games on Sunday. The rooting interests are clear for the AFC game.
Rooting against the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game has become an annual tradition for Buffalo Bills fans.
And likely for many fans outside the New England area.
The Patriots are in the game for the eighth straight season, which is just absurd.
So when Bills fans sit down to watch the two games on Sunday, it is obvious that most will be rooting for the Patriots to lose to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs are actually easy to root for and if a team other than the Bills has to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl, watching Patrick Mahomes and that dynamic Chiefs offense is infinitely better than seeing Tom Brady and the Patriots playing in February once again.
I won’t advocate that Bills fans paint their faces and become diehard Chiefs fans on Sunday, but it will be nice to root for the Patriots to lose against a team that is fun to watch. It’s nice to have some new faces in the big games for once.
I am curious whether some Bills fans will actually be rooting hard for the Chiefs. I mean going through the ups and down of the game like a Chiefs fan would. No one in Buffalo wants to see the Patriots win, but I wonder how many will actively cheer for Kansas City.
As for the NFC Championship Game, I don’t specifically have a rooting interest. I’ll be lame and just say I’m hoping to watch a fun game after some dud games last week.
It would be cool to see the Los Angeles Rams reach the Super Bowl, but at the same time it would be nice to see Drew Brees get a chance to win another ring.
This is another year without the Bills playing late in January, so hopefully everyone can at least find some entertainment on Sunday. Specifically in the form of a Patriots loss.
