Top 10 reasons why the Bills will Circle the Wagons this weekend

Posted Sep 23, 2017

As the Bills prepare to take on the visiting Broncos, here are the top 10 reasons why Buffalo will Circle the Wagons.


10. Penn State Blue Band in the house

Calling all Penn State fans! The Blue Band will be making a special trip to New Era Field to perform during pregame and halftime at Buffalo’s Week 3 contest.

9. An Abby Anderson style anthem

Black River Entertainment’s very own Abby Anderson will be in Orchard Park this Sunday to sing the national anthem. Eager to share her unique sound, the up-and-coming songwriter and artist is sure to impress.

8. Going back-to-back

When the Broncos ride into town, it’ll mark the second AFC opponent the Bills have faced at New Era Field this season. With a victory, the Bills will have started the season 2-0 at home for the first time since 2011. We like the sound of that.

7. Two tough defenses on display

Worlds will collide this weekend, as two of the NFL’s top defensive units square off. With the Bills sitting at second overall in total defense and the Broncos just two spots behind, this matchup has all the makings of a defensive slug fest. Who’s ready?

6. Sack alert!

Buffalo’s pass rush is firing on all cylinders. Meaning, it could be a long day for Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian. The red-hot unit posted six sacks during Week 2 and is gearing up to tack on a few more.

5.  No one Circles the Wagons like…New Era Cap

Bills fans, you won’t want to miss this. New Era will have a wagon, pulled by horses, roaming Abbott Road and the Billevard this Sunday! Fans can stop by to take a photo, enter the New Era sweepstakes and pick up giveaway items, including koozies and pop sockets. 

4. Jay Riemersma to Lead the Charge

Former Bills tight end Jay Riemersma will return to his old stomping grounds this game day as the Leader of the Charge. A productive member of Buffalo’s offense from 1996-02, fans can look for Riemersma above the tunnel, as he welcomes the Bills to the field. Good to have you back, Jay!

3. Milestones in the making

Not only do the Bills have an opportunity to come away with a huge conference win this week, they’re also on pace to hit a few milestones. With two touchdowns, LeSean McCoy will have 75 on his career. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor is just one touchdown shy of 40. 

2. Can Poyer make it three?

Bills safety Jordan Poyer has made quite a name for himself this season. As the first defensive back in Bills history to record a sack in his first two games, Poyer will work to make it three against Denver.

1. Defend the turf

Over the last decade, New Era Field has proven a tough place for the Broncos to play. Allowing Denver just one win at home since 2007, the Bills have done what it takes to defend their turf. It’ll be a challenge, but the Bills boys are looking to keep their streak alive as they go to battle this Sunday.
