Buffalo Bills 2019 ESPY Awards: The nominees

ESPN doesn’t have any Buffalo Bills nominated for an ESPY award, so we made our own version.

In less than a week — July 10th — history will never be the same, because the Buffalo Bills, the team with a fanbase that partakes in destroying innocent tables, will not take part in ESPN’s annual ESPY awards. But don’t fret, because, at BuffaLowDown — credit to Bolts Beat for this idea –, we have our own ESPY’s, featuring only those playing in Western New York.

For today, we have the nominations, which you can vote on by clicking here, or the (Twitter pole) link next to nominees. Note; all of these are based on 2018 play, other than the best college athlete, no new editions will be featured.
