Too much cute: Hunter Frenette, 7, was attending his first regular-season game Sunday. But with the Bills already eliminated from playoff contention, Hunter and his stepdad, Shane Witmer, decided to make a sign that looks toward next season.

Seen and heard around Ralph Wilson Stadium prior to Bills-Giants… New York’s team: The New York Giants are lying to you. They’re not from New York, and neither are the Jets. Both of those teams are really from New Jersey. It’s a scientific fact. New York state’s only true NFL team is the Buffalo Bills. It you disagree with that, you’re wrong. But if you need more convin…

Remember the Dizzy Bat fan who slammed headfirst into a parked bus before the Bills game last weekend? Of course you do. That video was everywhere. Dizzy Bat fan's name is Paul Nieman.

The best parts of being a Bills fan don't necessarily happen between kickoff and the final tick of the fourth quarter. Bills fever is tough to fully encapsulate: it's a red, white and blue smorgasbord of juicy tailgate burgers, Zubaz pants, dogs donning Sammy Watkins jerseys, panoramic shots of a dreary-yet-jubilant Ralph Wilson Stadium and lucky Bills socks, and so much …
