Buffalo Bills Player Went to the Super Bowl and Sat With Fans
The Buffalo Bills were the favorites to win the Super Bowl this past season, which looked very possible for much of it. The team went 13-3 and despite a close win over a lesser opponent in the wild card round (Miami Dolphins, rookie backup quarterback), the team was one win away from an AFC Championship game.
However, the Cincinnati Bengals put the kibosh on that. They beat the Bills, convincingly, 27-10 at Highmark Stadium.
The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles were the two teams playing in this year's Super Bowl, with the Chiefs walking away the winner in a great game: 38-35.
We know that Bills safety Damar Hamlin was at the game, sitting with NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell. However, there was another Bills player there and he was sitting with the fans.
Bills defensive tackle DaQuan Jones tweeted that he was at the Super Bowl and said that he wants the Bills there next season.
Jones was probably the most under-appreciated Bills player this past season. In fact, he may have been the most underrated free agent signing last year.
Jones was a huge help for the Bills linebackers and edge rushers and his value was felt in that AFC Divisional loss to the Bengals in the divisional round. Not having Jones and Von Miller was a blow to the Bills chances in that playoff game.
The Bills should focus resources on the offense this spring. They will have to sacrifice some of the defensive assets to help Josh Allen get better production from wide receivers beyond Stefon Diggs and an offensive line that can protect him better.
