Bill Belichick offers high praise for Bills Mafia
Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots will have to play in a very tough environment on Sunday when they take on the Buffalo Bills, and the coach respects the passion with which the fans who call themselves the “Bills Mafia” support their team.
Belichick is a man of very few words, but he had no problem heaping praise on Bills fans while speaking with reporters on Tuesday. Heck, he may have spoken more about Bills Mafia than he did about Antonio Brown the entire 11 days the star wide receiver was in New England.
Bill Belichick tips hat to #BillsMafia "It's a very intense crowd. They're vocal, totally into it & have a great passion for the game. Some stadiums don't have quite the intensity Buffalo does. They have no other agenda. They're there to watch the game. It gets very loud." #Bills

Now, we should note that Belichick did not comment specifically on fans jumping through burning tables in the parking lot during pregame festivities, but he obviously appreciates the level of dedication the people of Buffalo show to their team.
Like the Patriots, the Bills have gotten off to a 3-0 start this season. They clearly have the best chance of dethroning New England in the AFC East, though we wouldn’t bank on it happening this year. However, their fans should be as loud for Sunday’s game as they have been in a long time. An upset win over the mighty Patriots might cause an earthquake in upstate New York.
