Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen joined in with fans to create a pretty awesome story this week.
Allen’s grandmother unexpectedly died at age 80 less than 24 hours before Allen played Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. The quarterback then threw for 415 yards in one of his career-best games. That inspired Bills fans to begin making donations to the Oishei Children’s Hospital, a favored cause of Allen’s. The fans had raised over $35,000 as of Monday.
That tally only continued to rise through the week. By Friday afternoon, the hospital reported that they had raised $483,000 in donations on behalf of Allen’s grandmother, all from Bills fans simply taking the initiative.
That teed up Allen, who added $17,000 of his own to make it an even $5,000.
Never doubt how passionate Bills Mafia can get. It made for a pretty awesome set of headlines this week.
Bills Mafia will not be stopped by a lack of fans or a pandemic in their efforts to tailgate before games in 2020.
According to TMZ Sports, Bills Mafia is still looking into ways to tailgate in spite of the lack of fans at NFL games. The Bills have announced that their stadium will be empty for at least the first two home games of 2020.
The Bills superfans do have options, however. One avenue they’re exploring is a MyBookie-sponsored “tailgate bubble.” It promises a registered, sanitized zone where fans can enjoy food, drinks, and table-jumping to their heart’s content. No location has been set, and the group is trying to limit the number of registrants.
Bills Mafia is well known for its infamous tailgate antics. Things just wouldn’t be the same without them. It sounds like they’re trying to get creative to make sure they can tailgate safely.
Buffalo Bills fans have a lot of traditions, but one of the most unusual pops up every year when the New England Patriots come to town. And if you want to bet on whether or not it will happen again during Sunday’s game, there is an avenue to do so.
For the third year in a row last year, a Bills fan threw a sex toy onto the field during the team’s game against the Pats. Online gambling website Odds Shark has set some odds for it happening again, and “YES” is a pretty significant favorite.
We wouldn’t bet against it.
The tradition seemed to start back in 2016, and Bills fans are certainly crazy enough to continue it. Bill Belichick recently had high praise for Bills Mafia, though it’s unclear if their object-throwing antics are also something he respects. Either way, feel free to fire in some bets prior to Sunday’s kickoff.
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.
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.
Buffalo Bills fans held true to their tradition of throwing a sex toy on the field during the team’s game against the New England Patriots.
During the second half of Monday night’s game between the Bills and Patriots at New Era Field, a dildo was thrown onto the field and made it to the end zone.
The same thing happened in 2016 and 2017, so this is the third year in a row Bills fans have done it.
It’s a tradition unlike any other. Literally.
As Buffalo Bills fans prepared to watch their team in a postseason game for the first time since 1999, they still did not forget the heroics of the man who helped get them there.
Shortly before kickoff of Buffalo’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, a Bills fan was spotted with a No. 14 jersey that he altered into an Andy Dalton jersey.
Dalton, of course, helped lead the Cincinnati Bengals to a dramatic win over the Baltimore Ravens last weekend. His touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd with 44 seconds remaining clinched a spot in the postseason for the Bills, and fans have gone to great lengths to express their gratitude.
We’ve already seen an influx of donations to Dalton’s charity from Bills fans, and other kind gestures have been made to the Bengals as a team. It’s safe to say Bills fans are much happier with the Bengals these days than the people of Cincinnati.
Andy Dalton and the Bengals helped the Bills punch their ticket to the postseason on Sunday by defeating the Ravens in dramatic fashion, and many fans in Buffalo have found a great way to show their appreciation.
On Monday, Dalton took to Twitter to thank all of the Bills fans who have been donating to his charitable foundation since the conclusion of Sunday’s game.
Bills fans have a reputation for doing some pretty outlandish things before and during games, but you have to respect their gesture in this situation. Dalton’s touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd with 44 seconds remaining against Baltimore meant more to Bills fans than Bengals fans will ever understand.
Buffalo Bills fans did it again.
For the second year in a row, a dildo was thrown onto the field during a Bills-Patriots game.
The last fans to throw a dildo on the field during a Bills game received a lifetime ban. We’ll see what happens with these ones.
Some fans toss an octopus onto the field of play. Bills fans throw dildos.
Former wide receiver Steve Smith has been watching Jeremy Maclin’s free agent decision process with great interest.
Smith had spent much of the last week downplaying the Buffalo Bills’ chances of landing Maclin, sending several tweets mocking Bills fans who thought they were in the driver’s seat in the race for the free agent receiver.
When Maclin elected to sign with the Baltimore Ravens — Smith’s former team — Smith was quick to have the last laugh.
Despite the best efforts of LeSean McCoy, the Bills simply didn’t appeal to Maclin as much as the Ravens did. Perhaps, at this point, the receiver sees Baltimore as more competitive — and Smith knows it.
It turns out there is a rather serious penalty for throwing a sex toy on the field during an NFL game.
The Buffalo Bills fans who were responsible for tossing a dildo onto the field in an Oct. 30 game against New England have been banned for life from attending games, according to Bills vice president of operations Andy Major.
The fact that the plural “fans” was used here is certainly something. Does that mean there was a second perpetrator? Either way, kudos to the organization for tracking them down accordingly, although it did result in an all-time Bills fan moment for all the world to see.
