UTICA, N.Y. --- Whether you were at home, at a local bar, or one of the lucky 6,700 attending the game in person, Bills fans across the state were out showing support for the home team. Under COVID guidelines, restaurants and bars were limited in capacity. Alcohol was only served if you bought food. Making it a much different viewing party than fans were used to.

On Saturday, The Buffalo Bills faced off against the Indianapolis Colts in their first home playoff game since 1996. Babes at Harbor Point in Utica welcomed a limited amount of Bills fans that were eager to enjoy food and drinks while watching the big game. Any Bills fan that was there agreed today was a big day for their team.

"This is the Bills team, this is what we've been working for for the 3 plus years. I was talking with someone today, if you start with a process and you follow through, these are the results," said Drew Ahrens.

After today's big win, fans felt very confident about the team's future.

"This is where you start to see real progress with the team in Western New York. It's an amazing experience for everyone in New York. Especially in Upstate because this is something a lot of people will hold on to," said Ahrens

The Bills will find out on Wednesday who they will play in the divisional round.
