The drought is over for Buffalo Bills fans, players, and local businesses, that are gearing up for possibly one of the busiest Sunday's of the season.

"The shout song will be playing when we score," said bar owner Chris Marinaro. "We're going to try to make it as much of a home game as possible."

Marinaro owns Marinaro's Larkin Tavern. It's usually closed Sundays, unless football is on. With the Bills in the playoffs, Marinaro is going all out with a tailgate outside the bar.

"We've owned the bar for seven years and we haven't had a playoff game in that time. This is huge for us," he said. "The response has been insane."

Bills fever is also running high down the road at 716.

"We invented a family style chicken finger sub we called it "The Dalton," said General Manager Brian Tierney.

He says the restaurant sold out of all tables for the Jags game minutes after the Bills clinched a playoff spot.
