Buffalo Bills Players Band Together To Help Provide Internet Access For BPS
Two things are for sure in Western New York. 1) We love our wings here. 2) We love our Buffalo Bills.
The Bills Mafia was just named the NFL's Best Fans by "NFL on Fox." The question from a lot of people around the country is...why?
Why do we love our Bills so much? It would be easy for someone outside our region to argue that they've never won a super bowl. It's been years since we've seen any success. Heck, it was only a couple years ago that we finally made it back to the playoffs.
But we still keep coming back.
And this stuff goes a long way with fans in Western New York.

It is unknown at this time the exact amount that will be donated but it's estimated to be close to $1 million that will be provided.
