Wow, what a game. First 5 AZ drives – 3 and out. Last 4 AZ drives – 4 interceptions. The defense came up big, and the running game kept the ball moving. The Bills never trailed and brought home a decisive win.
Now it’s down to business this week for a big weekend of WNY sports in the Boston area: Saturday UB travels to Chestnut Hill to take on BC, and Sunday the Bills travel to Foxboro to take on the Pats, and whoever they are starting at QB.
Here's the info:

Tailgate info for this week @ Gillette Stadium:
Lucky enough to have a ticket to the game? Come on down and join our annual Bills Backers Pinto Ron Foxboro Tailgate! We’ll be joined by arguably the most famous Bills fan, Ken “Pinto Ron” Johnson. Ken’s known for attending over 300 consecutive home and away games, and got his nickname for the Ford Pinto he drives to every Bills home game that’s the centerpiece of some massive tailgate celebrations. Here’s the info for the tailgate:
SAME SPOT AS LAST FEW SEASONS:
Cost: $50/vehicle (expensive, we know. But at least it’s a private lot so your $$ isn’t going to Robert Kraft)
Time: Lot officially opens at 8:30am
If approaching from the North (Boston) on Route 1, entrance to the lot is BEFORE the building on the right.
Where in the lot is the party?
- We generally set up shop along the tree line in the back of the lot.
What time should I show up?
- The lot opens at 8:30am, and they start filling in cars from the back of the lot (where we normally set up shop). The only way they can guarantee parking next to a group is to show up together. So if you’re not there early enough to be part of the main group, just park nearby and bring your stuff over.
What if the lot is full?
- The liquor store lot is before the building. There is another larger lot IMMEDATELY past the Liquor Store lot in a large field (you can see it on the google maps link above) behind the liquor store building. You can park there and just walk over the low guardrail in the back of the lot to join the party.
I’m going with Pats fans, will they have fun?
- It should be a pretty friendly environment for them. Our group is surrounded by Pats fans every year, and sometimes a few are mixed up in the middle. They’ve been very friendly in the past, and many of them ask to partake in Bills tailgate traditions like the bowling ball shot. We’ve also been known to square off in a drinking game or two. Many Pats fans have told us they have a blast at our tailgate, and a few are coming back to join us this year.
How far is it from the stadium?
- About a 10-12 min walk to the gate. Allow an extra 10-15 min going into to allow for the lines due to searches/pat downs. Also be careful taking a “beverage” with you walking to the stadium as law enforcement here is not as lax as in Orchard Park.
Can we tailgate postgame?
- One of the reasons we picked this lot is it’s not stadium owned, so the rules are a little more lax and they don’t kick you out right after the game. Generally we’ve been able to stick around for an hour or two postgame without a problem, which is great because traffic isn’t as bad by then so the drive home is easier.
