Top 10 reasons why you should be pumped for Bills-Cardinals


10. Fall is here

Well, Bills fans, it's officially fall and you know what that means. Perfect football weather! With the forecast calling for 67 degrees and sunshine, it'll be a good day to cheer on the Bills at New Era Field.

9. Back in blue

For the first time this season, the Buffalo Bills will take the field wearing blue jerseys and white pants. A winning combination? We think so.

8. Orchard Park is a no-fly zone for the Cardinals

Throughout Bills franchise history, the team has squared off against the Cardinals 10 times. With Buffalo leading the series 6-4, and 3-0 in Orchard Park, we like our odds.

7. Fitzgerald has never scored in Buffalo

For the last 13 NFL seasons, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has proven himself as an offensive difference maker for the Arizona Cardinals. However, the last time Fitzgerald and the Cardinals came to town in 2004, the elite wide out was held scoreless.

6. John Fina will lead the charge

Bills former guard John Fina will return to the place he called home for 10 years for this important Week 3 matchup. Back at New Era Field to lead the charge, Fina will proudly wave the Bills flag as the team storms the field.


5. Time to pick up the pace

With new offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn calling the shots, Buffalo's offensive unit will likely see an increase in tempo. Gearing up to get their first regular season win in 2016, the Bills will look to get the ball to their playmakers early and often.

4. Cornerback comeback

Listed among the NFL's top cornerback tandems in 2015, Bills CBs Ronald Darby and Stephon Gilmore are due for some big plays in 2016. Covering Arizona's talented wide outs will be a tall task for the pair, but we know they're up for the challenge.

3. First football Sunday at New Era Field

Sundays at New Era Field are something to get excited about. What better way to kick off the first Bills football Sunday this season than with a win?

2. Knocking on the door

After coming within one score of each of their last two opponents this season (13-7 Baltimore, 37-31 Jets) the Bills are ready to finish strong in Week 3 and come away with a "W."

1. "All In" on Anthony Lynn

As offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn prepares to right the ship in Buffalo, he will do so with the full support of the players and coaching staff. Committed to taking steps forward on offense, this Bills team is "All In" on new play-caller Anthony Lynn.
