It's no secret that Bills fans have huge expectations for the team this season. That excitement also adds to the willingness to travel to away cities to watch the Bills play.

Many Bills fans are making the trip to LA for the game and that was very evident byu the crowds at the Buffalo-Niagara Airport on Tuesday morning.

Matt Bove of WKBW said it's the busiest he's seen the Buffalo airport since pre-COVID.

Ed Drantch of WKBW posted a few photos of the crowds, and the line at TSA are super long, while the seating at gates are very crowded as well.

The Buffalo-Niagara International Airport has a reputation of not being anywhere near as busy at TSA as other major airports, but today offered a taste of other major city airports, as Bills fans flocked to Los Angeles to watch the Bills play the Rams.

The Bills on the field are entering the opener mostly healthy. Jordan Poyer and Isaiah McKenzie are expected to play (both have been nursing injuries), while Tre'Davious White will miss this game and the next three, as he's been placed on reserve/PUP (ACL).
