Based in Buffalo–Niagara Falls metropolitan area, the Buffalo Bills is a famous American professional football team. Being a member of the American Football Conference (AFC) East division, the team competes in the National Football League (NFL). They play their home matches at New Era Field in Orchard Park, New York. The Bills are lucky to be the only NFL team playing its home games in New York City. They joined American Football League in 1960 and started playing as an NFL member as a result of the AFL and NFL merge for the 1970 season. The Bills remain to be the only NFL team to win conference championships four times consecutively and lose four consecutive Super Bowl games.
The Bills have rivalries with their three AFC East opponents and they are Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, and New York Jets.
The team’s founder is Ralph Wilson, and the head coach was Buster Ramsey. After his death, the team was sold to Terry, and Kim Pegula as Wilson’s estate agreed on it. From 1999 until 2017, the Bills experienced a significant drop down as they did not qualify to play NFL playoffs as they were the last team in NFL and the major North American Professional sports leagues overall. This playoff drought of seventeen consecutive seasons was mostly contributed by the rise of the division rival New England Patriots alongside other numerous failed attempts at rebuilding the team.
