Eric Moulds is thrilled to have a front-row seat to Sunday's AFC divisional matchup between the Bills and Cincinnati Bengals as the Legend of the Game.
"I'm very excited to get the opportunity to watch who I feel will be the team that's going to eventually represent the AFC in the Super Bowl," Moulds said. "I know obviously, it's one game at a time. But watching this Bills team, you feel like they're destined to be that team to represent the AFC. So I'm excited to watch them play in person again and see the guys have that success."
The former wide receiver spent 10 of his 12 NFL seasons in Buffalo, two of which he was named second team All-Pro by the Associated Press. The three-time Pro Bowler recorded 9,096 receiving yards on 675 receptions and 48 touchdowns as a Bill.
After playing in three playoff games during his time in Buffalo, Moulds is looking forward to another Buffalo playoff game but this time in a different role.
"To me, this is the premier matchup in the league and these are two of the best teams," Moulds said. "I really feel that whoever wins this game is going to be the team that represents the AFC in the Super Bowl, and I really feel like we have a great chance to win this football game and I'm extremely excited to see it."
Moulds has plenty of experience playing in front of Bills Mafia so he knows they're going to pack Highmark Stadium and the surrounding parking lots on Sunday and will be fired up come 3:00 p.m. Especially knowing what's at stake and what this win means to the road to February football, Moulds expects Bills fans to show up and help lead their beloved team to victory.
"It'll be probably one of the loudest games ever played there because we're playing a team that is really really good that played in the Super Bowl last year," Moulds said. "There's a lot at stake, with a chance to get to the AFC Championship Game, so I know Bills fans are going to be pretty loud and it's going to be an exciting place to be."
Buffalo is a place that Moulds holds near and dear to his heart, and he's eager to be reunited with the city and the people of Buffalo this upcoming weekend as they cheer on the Bills together.
"It's probably one of those cities that's a college-type atmosphere with a professional team in it," Moulds said. "Buffalo has always been a team that the fans are following you. Everywhere we played, there were Bills fans and it's still that way even I'm though retired. I still go to different places to help Bills Backers Bars, so I see bills mafia all over the world. But Buffalo is a great city and to come back this weekend is going to be a great experience for me."
