Sabres Coach Don Granato Wears Bills AFC East Shirt at Press Conference
The Buffalo Bills are getting ready for a huge game this Saturday against the New England Patriots. The game will be part of the NFL's Wild Card Weekend, and it will be the first playoff meeting between the two teams since the AFL/NFL merger.
Kickoff will be at 8:15 pm at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park. It will be shown on CBS.
Everywhere you look around Western New York, it's Bills mania. Josh Allen jerseys are all over Downtown Buffalo and it's the number one topic at any dinner table or bar in the region.
One of the cool parts about Buffalo is when the Bills and Sabres support one another. That was the case on Tuesday morning, when Sabres head coach Don Granato decided to showcase his Bills colors at his press conference.
The Sabres actually play on the same day as the playoff game between the Bills and Patriots. They will be on the road at the Detroit Red Wings at 7 pm this Saturday. I can't remember the last time the Sabres and Bills played at the exact same time, and during a Bills playoff game no less.
The Bills are hoping to get wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders back for Saturday night. Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Sanders would be a full participant at practice on Tuesday.
The Patriots are hoping to have rookie defensive tackle Christian Barmore for the game. He was hurt against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
