The Bills and Patriots face off for the rubber game this season, and this time it’s playoff football.
Buffalo hosts New England tonight at Highmark Stadium for their Wild Card Round matchup in the NFL Playoffs. The game marks the first-ever playoff game between the two franchises since the merger.
It’s also very obvious that neither fanbase likes each other very much. In fact, banter between Buffalo and Boston is quite common during a Bills-Patriots game week; it’s all part of the experience.
While some New England fans laughed at the ticket prices for this playoff game and the dedication of Buffalo fans in cold weather (0-6 degrees during the game), a popular restaurant in Buffalo decided to have fun with New England quarterback MacJones.
Jones had a strong rookie campaign, helping lead the Patriots to the playoffs with a 10-7 record, but it’s obvious to most NFL fans that Jones isn’t relying on the Patriots offense .
Mister Sizzle’s in Buffalo, which makes amazing burgers by the way, decided to do a QB comparison between Bills quarterback Josh Allen and Patriots quarterback Mac Jones.
The thing about sports rivalries is that it’s fun when the fanbases make fun of each other. There’s something about sports that makes people step on the side of caution and support their team in any way they can.
The Bills and Patriots fanbases are two classic examples, and we all love it.
Kick-off is at 8:15 p.m.
