BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — You hear it time and time again, there's always a Buffalo connection.

This weekend the Bills have a chance to punch their ticket to the their first Super Bowl appearance in 27 years. There will be plenty of Bills fans making the trip to Kansas City, and a whole lot more watching back in Buffalo. But for one family, this weekend is a win-win.

Demone Harris is a Buffalo native, but he plays for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Harris grew up in Buffalo and played college football at the University at Buffalo. After a really strong collegiate career, Harris signed as an undrafted free agent with Tampa Bay. After another stop in Baltimore, he signed with the Chiefs. This is his second year on the roster.

On Sunday, his current team will take on his hometown team and his family is thrilled.

"It's a blast," says Demone's brother, Daryan. "We were so happy when we watched when the Bills win against the Ravens. So it was just an incredible feeling."

Daryan watched Demone win a Super Bowl with the Chiefs last year. He says nothing will top that, but this weekend will be pretty special for the Harris family, regardless of the outcome.

"Wow, just seeing like such a great Buffalo team, just emerge and break records, and make it so far, it's hard to go against them. I feel like we're all split, but we definitely support both."
