Top 10 reasons to gear up for Bills-Colts

Posted Dec 9, 2017

The Bills will host the Indianapolis Colts at New Era Field this week. Here's the top 10 reasons why you should gear up for the matchup.


10. Let it snow

With the temperature dropping and the snow falling, it’s beginning to look a lot like Bills football weather in Orchard Park. Bundle up, Bills fans winter is here!

9. It’s Family Day!

At this week’s game against the Colts, the Bills will host Family Day, sponsored by Independent Health, the Official Health and Wellness Partner of the Buffalo Bills. Family Day will feature a variety of fun fit for all ages! At the Fan Zone in the ADPRO Sports Training Center, fans can skate on a synthetic ice rink, visit with Santa Claus and his elves and take photos in front of the giant snow globe. There will also be live reindeer outside of the Fan Zone. Don’t miss out!

8. Will Wolford to Lead the Charge

Longtime Bills offensive lineman Will Wolford, will make his return to New Era Field this weekend, as the team’s Leader of the Charge. Wolford, who played for the Bills from 1986-1992, was a standout on offense, earning two trips to the Pro Bowl during his time in Buffalo. Look for Wolford above the tunnel waving the Bills flag!

7. Bring the heat

For the first time this season, the Bills will be sporting their red Color Rush gear on game day. As the team works to bring the heat against the visiting Colts, we’re calling on you to show your support by wearing red.

6. History in the making for McCoy

Bills running back LeSean McCoy has tallied an impressive 9,805 yards rushing on his career. Chasing the big 10k, McCoy still has plenty of time to reach his goal and may hit a few others along the way. With 35 scrimmage yards, Shady will become the first Bills player to amass 4,000 in three years since running back Travis Henry managed the feat in 2001-03.

5. All about the Benjamin

After sustaining an injury during Buffalo’s Week 11 game, Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin returned to practice this week. Ready to make his way back to the field, Benjamin has an opportunity to contribute in a major way on offense.

4. Alexander earns his stripes

In recognition of his work on and off the field, Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander was recently named as the team’s 2017 Man of the Year Award nominee. In honor of the accomplishment, Alexander and each of the League’s 32 winners will be adding a special decal to their helmets for the rest of the season.

3. Familiar face, new uniform

The last time Buffalo’s defense faced a Jacoby Brissett orchestrated offense was in Week 4 of last season when he played for the Patriots. Stepping in for Indianapolis’ injured starter Andrew Luck, Brissett will have another chance to make an impact. The Bills ‘D’ was successful against the young signal caller in the first go-around, sacking him three times and rendering him scoreless.   

2. Hyde’s hunt continues

Although it’s been five games since Bills safety Micah Hyde had his last interception, the ballhawk is still tied for second in the NFL. Compiling a personal best five picks on the season, Hyde is hunting for a few more. 

1. Defend our dirt

Playing at New Era Field for the second week in a row, the Bills will need to take care of business in order to keep their postseason hopes alive. A win would mark the team’s fifth victory at home this season. Time to defend our dirt.
