Top 5 reasons why Bills fans should be excited for the Ravens-Bills AFC showdown 


5. A homecoming 20 years in the making

During Sunday's AFC showdown against the Ravens, a beloved Bills Legend will make his return to New Era Field for the first time in two decades. Doug Flutie, a Heisman Trophy winner and CFL Hall of Famer, made quite an impact during his tenure with Buffalo from 1998-00. Pumped to come back, the Pro Bowler will serve as the "Legend of the Game" and will lead the crowd in the "Shout Song" before kickoff. Get ready to belt out your best "Flutieeee," Bills fans.

4. Oh, Canada!

Bills faithful making the trip to Orchard Park, will be able to start their game day off right by taking advantage of pregame festivities on the Billevard and in the Fan Zone. This week, the Billevard offering includes several Canadian-themed activities such as a curling lane presented by New Era Cap, Top Shot Hockey, face painting and photo borders! The fun will continue at halftime when the Bills welcome The Strictly Hip, a popular local group that covers The Tragically Hip, to the field. Fans will want to stay in their seats to hear The Strictly Hip perform two of the Canadian rock band's iconic hits.

3. Bills sport kicks for a cause

Not only is Buffalo's Week 14 game a big one from a standings perspective, it's also special for the Bills on a personal level. Given the opportunity to highlight the charitable causes that are close to their hearts through the "My Cause My Cleats" program, the Bills will sport unique cleat designs this weekend. Players taking part in the initiative include Lorenzo Alexander, Josh Allen, Matt Barkley, Ike Boettger, Corey Bojorquez, Reid Ferguson, Stephen Hauschka, Jerry Hughes, Micah Hyde, Corey Liuget, Trent Murphy, Harrison Phillips, Jordan Poyer and Levi Wallace. Bills coaches, such as head coach Sean McDermott, and staff members will also take part by wearing custom sneakers.

When the Bills take the field against the Ravens in Week 14, Buffalo Bills players and staff members will be wearing cleats and shoes to bring awareness and support to causes and organizations that are important to them as part of the NFL's "My Cause My Cleats" initiative. Scroll through to view photos of some of the cleats that will be worn during the game.

2. Double dose of the dual threat

When quarterbacks Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson square off at New Era Field, they'll make NFL history. Both in their sophomore seasons, the signal callers have proven they can make big plays both threw the air and on the ground. According to ESPN, their remarkable combined 1,407 yards rushing mark the most ever by QBs playing in the same game.

1. Coming in hot

There's no denying that the 9-3 Bills have been heating up. Since Week 11, offensive coordinator Brian Daboll's unit ranks fifth in the NFL in yards per game with 412 and offensive points per game with 27.7. Firing on all cylinders, the squad, and entire Bills team, has developed a strong chemistry – one that makes them a fun group to watch. Looking to pass their toughest test of the season, the Bills will band together to do what it takes.
