In case you haven't heard, the Buffalo Bills play today; a 1 pm kickoff against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park to open the 2021 regular season and the home schedule.

The game today marks the first time in nearly two years that Highmark Stadium will be at full capacity and if you are going to the game today it certainly looks like it and then some.

Going to the stadium for a Bills home game (outside of 2020), obviously involves high traffic, but Sunday's opener against Pittsburgh is probably the worst I have ever seen it in the 20 years or so I have been going to the stadium.

70,000-plus are going to be in attendance, but as one officer who was directing traffic was telling me, this is likely due to others who just wanted to come and be around the atmosphere, after missing out on this all of 2020.

So, fans going to the game and fans who don't have a ticket. You factor in the fact the Bills are great and it's a home opener, you have yourself a ton of traffic.

I left my house at 8:30 am -- which is usually plenty of time. The heavy traffic had already started and I did not get into the lot next to the stadium until 10:10 am -- an hour and 40 minutes in traffic and the vast majority of that was on the 219 and Big Tree Road.

California was packed and so was Southwestern Blvd.

It was a bit frustrating, but honestly, it was a great scene to see Bills fans back in full force at the stadium.
