Bills 50/50 Raffle
The Buffalo Bills are teaming up with Pointstreak 5050 on an innovative platform to raise charitable funds for the Buffalo community and Western New York region through an electronic 50/50 raffle. The Pointstreak 5050 system enables raffle tickets to be sold through mobile sellers utilizing electronic handheld devices, portable printers, and a number of stationary selling terminals around Ralph Wilson Stadium. Half of the net proceeds will go to one lucky fan and half to benefit the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County and the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York.
For your convenience, the Buffalo Bills and Republic Services Blue Team will be handing out blue recycling bags and black garbage bags to tailgaters to help keep their space clean. Tailgaters are encouraged to fill the bags and leave them at the end of their tailgate for Bills staff to pick up before the end of the game.

The Bills weren’t the only team to sprinkle a Wildcat formation type look into their game plan Sunday. New England also did on Sunday night as RB Kevin Faulk took a direct snap from center and completed a pass to Wes Welker, though it went for a two-yard loss.
Faulk said the Colts were prepared for it, and that the Pats would likely put it back on the shelf. In light of how well Buffalo defended the Wildcat in the game against the Dolphins, I’d be surprised if we see much of it from New England this coming week at Gillette Stadium.
