NEW HARTFORD- It was a historic day for the Buffalo Bills and their fans. On Sunday, in their 58th season, the Buffalo Bills made their 29th playoff appearance. The last time the Bills made the playoffs was in 1999, against the Tennessee Titian, where they lost 22-16.
Today, Bills fans in the Utica area gathered at Killabrew Saloon in New Hartford, to cheer on their team against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Killabrew, greeted the first few fans inside the bar with free Bills apparel and served drink specials throughout the game.
Fans, were found at the saloon with standing room only, as temperatures got heated especially after the injury of Tyron Taylor, the Bills starting quarterback.
The Bills were defeated by the Jags, 10-3. Although their season came to an end local fans said the loss is depressing, but it will be something they will tell their kids about for the years to come.
“It was a fun ride while it lasted the first time in 17 years that’s all you could ask for,” said Justin Angrisano, of Utica. “I am going to tell my kids about this because I don’t know if they will ever make the playoffs again.”
