“I HAVE A LOT OF LOVE FOR TENNESSEE.” – DERRICK HENRY
A 21-19 loss to the Miami Dolphins at South Beach in the ridiculous heat came next, including the controversial injury and return of Tua Tagovailoa. Most of the stats would indicate the Bills won by a milestone. Not in this case. Any Given Sunday!
“In L.A., you can hide. I can hide at the beach, hide up in the hills. In Miami, everybody is looking at you.” – Jamie Foxx

“Give me a ticket for an aeroplane. Ain’t got time to take a fast train.” — Jefferson Airplane
As our plane ascended from the Buffalo Airport, the flight attendants reminded the passengers that all larger electronic devices need to be stowed away for the time being. All small devices simply needed to be in airplane mode. With these strict policies in place, it was amazing to hear scattered groups throughout the plane cheering for the Bills. I was in one of those cheering groups. Oh My.

Our direct flight from Las Vegas back home to Buffalo taxied for an extended period as we waited for 18 planes in queue for take-off. We were discussing the success of my mother’s 80th Birthday celebration. Happy Birthday MOM! Yes. A shameless Birthday plug. Smashing!
As we approached clearance for take-off smack in the middle of Buffalo Bills bye week, the entire plane erupted into a melody. “Hey-ayyyyyyy-ayyyyyyyy-ayy! (Hey-ayyyyyyy-ayyyyyyyy-ayy!) Hey-ayyyyyyy-ayyyyyyyy-ayy! (Hey-ayyyyyyy-ayyyyyyyy-ayy!) Let’s go Buffalo! Let’s go Buffalo! Let’s go Buffalo! Let’s go Buffalo! The Bills make me wanna SHOUT!”
Things we know about the Buffalo Bills this week
Former Bills defensive coordinator Walt Corey passed away this past weekend. Godspeed.
The Bills organization released some detailed images of what the new stadium may look like as their new home in 2026. From everything I have heard, seen, and read, a “not-too-shabby” is essential here.
Stevie Johnson is back in the Queen City and will be the Legend of the Game, introducing the Bills on Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers. He is also doing some charity work at One Bills Drive as well as attending a Sabres Game. Welcome home STEVIE!
Buffalo has now outscored the opposition 51-7 in the third quarter this season. Patrick Mahomes tossed a touchdown to Marquez Valdes-Scantling for the first points surrendered by the Bills in the third quarter this year. Very Nice.
Von Miller recorded four solo tackles against the Chiefs, two tackles for loss, and two sacks. McBeane certainly continues to look like they know what they are doing. Dare I say the word “genius”? Time will tell.
