ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) - The Buffalo Bills will play all eight of their home games at Ralph Wilson Stadium this season.

The team announced they have reached an agreement with Rogers Media to postpone the series for the 2014 season.

Team President and CEO Russ Brandon and Keith Pelley, President of Rogers Media, issued a statement:

“The Buffalo Bills and Rogers are committed to delivering a first-class NFL experience to Canadians. As such, we have postponed for one year the scheduled 2014 regular season game at Rogers Centre in Toronto, and that game will return to Ralph Wilson Stadium. We will use this time to collectively evaluate opportunities and build on the foundation to enhance future games.

We are committed to continuing our partnership and have secured a robust sponsorship agreement for the 2014 season that will bring Canadian NFL fans visibility and access to the Bills. The sponsorship includes ticketing, merchandising, media exposure, and a newly created Canada House, near Ralph Wilson Stadium, that will serve as the official pre-game Canadian tailgate zone for all Bills home games.

The NFL remains very popular in Canada and we are dedicated to enriching the experience for the fans.”

In its current deal with Rogers Media, the Bills were scheduled to play four regular season games and one preseason game in Toronto over the next four years.

The Bills have had very little success in Toronto, only going 1-5 since the deal began in 2008.
