Posted Nov 11, 2017

As the Bills get set to host the Saints at New Era Field, here are the top 10 reasons why you won't forget the matchup.

10. Winter is coming

What do you get when you combine cold temperatures with Western New York?

9. When the Saints go marching in…

Saints signal caller Drew Brees and company will make their way north to New Era Field this week for the first time since 2009. Riding a six-game win streak, New Orleans has proven the team to beat and the Bills are up for the challenge.

8. Bills salute the troops

In honor of the NFL’s Salute to Service initiative, which recognizes and supports current U.S. service members and veterans, the Bills will add camouflage to their blue on white uniform combination on game day.

7. Antowain Smith to Lead the Charge

Former Bills running back Antowain Smith will be in the house this week to lead the charge. Selected by Buffalo in the first round of the 1997 NFL Draft, the ball carrier spent four seasons with the Bills. Back in familiar territory, Smith will proudly wave the Bills flag to welcome the team out of the tunnel.

6. Salute to Service Ceremony

The Buffalo Bills will celebrate all five branches of the military this Sunday in a special pregame ceremony. Featuring a full-field flag unfurl during the national anthem and a military flyover, the event is sure to leave a lasting impression.

5. The Shady show

Up against a Saints defense that has struggled to stop the run, LeSean McCoy is looking to take full advantage. Setting his sights on the end zone, the seasoned running back will aim to do what he does best – elude the opposition and make big plays.

4. Calling on Clay

After five weeks without Charles Clay in the lineup, Buffalo’s top tight end is eager to make his return. Listed as questionable for the game, Clay’s presence would be a huge boost for Tyrod Taylor and squad.

3. Bottle up Brees

The brisk air isn’t the only breeze the Bills will have to manage during their Week 10 matchup. They’ll also be tasked with containing future Hall of Famer Drew Brees. Known for his ability to release the ball quickly, it’ll be tough for the Bills to completely disrupt the veteran quarterback, but applying pressure is a must.

2. Bring on Benjamin

KB13 will be reporting for duty on Sunday, giving T2 another wide receiver to target. At 6-5, 245 pounds, Benjamin has all the makings of a big-time difference maker for the Bills. As Buffalo looks to improve to 6-3, expect to see the newcomer in action. Trust us, you can’t miss him.

1. There’s no place like home

The Bills are undefeated at home this season and the team is counting on you, Bills fans, to continue to make New Era Field a tough place to play. Working to advance to 5-0 in Orchard Park for the first time since 1995, the Bills are ready to take care of business.
