QUOTE OF THE DAY
CEO Russ Brandon
On being able to rekindle the rivalry between the Miami Dolphins in Primetime on Thursday night (via WGR 550 4/18/12):
“When you looked at it from our standpoint, Thursday night game in Primetime, we all know what it was like in the building for the Dallas Monday Night game a few years back, but it’s extra special to play the Dolphins at night, play them here on a Thursday. I think the market’s going to really respond and I also think Friday the 16th will be a very nonproductive day in town for sure.”

PHOTO OF THE DAY

September 17, 1984 was the last time the Bills hosted the Miami Dolphins at home for a primetime game. The two teams will face each other again in primetime at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Thursday, November 15th.
