Orchard Park, N.Y. (WKBW) - It was a big win on Sunday for the Buffalo Bills. The victory not only has Western New Yorkers but also people across the nation talking about Buffalo.
"Yesterday was just the most insane game I've ever watched," Bills Fan Liz Jezioro said.
Bills Fan Kevin Frank said it was all about seeing the New England Patriots get a taste of their own medicine.
"It was just really great to see Tom Brady struggle and our defense came up big," Frank said.
Alicia Christianson agrees.
"It's just something really positive for the city," Christianson said.
Those were the sentiments of many Buffalo Bills fans that saw the intense and exciting victory over the New England Patriots, all the way from the 21-nothing comeback to the final winning field goal.
"It's huge not only for this season but for the city. I think we'll get more fans here and hopefully sell more tickets later in the season," Frank said.
Christianson works at a downtown hotel and said it will bring business.
"I think it's good because if they go to the playoffs, cross your fingers, it will bring people here from Canada and other places," Christianson said.
The players including Bills Safety George Wilson said it's not only the team but also that enthusiasm from the fans that sparks a win like this one.
"It's a blue collar town and we look at us as a blue collar team. They supported us even when we didn't do well and now they can go to work with the sweet taste of victory in their mouths," Wilson said.
Although these players and the fans knew beating the Pats was possible there were many naysayers across the nation. Now, it's nothing but love for the Queen City as they take the win.
"I'm so happy for the fans of the bills and the Lyons. In every other sport you can pencil in who will be in the playoffs but with the NFL there is such a huge turn over that each team could have their day in the sun," Mike and Mike in the Morning National Radio Show
Now, with all the momentum and morale, the team will head to Cincinnati to play the Bengals.
"I think we got to keep it together. It's not going to be easy breezy but from here but we have it in us our team is insane," Jezioro said.
