Jim Kelly will be in the building on Monday night!
The Hall of Fame quarterback will lead the charge as the Legend of the Game when the Bills host the Tennessee Titans for the team's home opener.
After 11 seasons with the Bills, Kelly holds the Bills' postseason record for most career passing yards (3,863), passing touchdowns (21), and passing yards in a single game (405).
Kelly is honored to be the Legend of Monday's game and he looks forward to being a part of the energetic crowd.
"It's a big home opener on Monday night, national audience, and it's another good way of showing what type of team we are," Kelly said. "It's one where not only the players are pumped up for this, but I know myself and the Bills Mafia are ecstatic, too."
The Kelly family was in the stands for the season opener when the Bills defeated the Los Angeles Rams in L.A. The former QB liked what he saw in the team's run game and the pressure the defense brought, and he's hoping for a similar result on Monday night.
"To be there and to be able to cheer them on and watch how they dominated the Super Bowl champions, it made me feel good that we're starting out on the right note," Kelly said.
As someone who's been in their shoes before, Kelly knows it's just another game for the players. Even though the team is coming off Thursday night's victory against the defending Super Bowl Champions with momentum, Kelly's advice to the them is to stay focused on the task at hand.
"You have to look at this one and don't get too overhyped," Kelly said. "Do what you have to do, do your job, and if we do our job, we're going to come out on top."
