ORCHARD PARK N.Y. (WIVB) – It’s been a roller coater season for the Buffalo Bills, and after getting to the AFC Championship game last season, there are high hopes for the Bills for what’s to come.

“New Year’s resolution is a Buffalo Bills Super Bowl! Right? Let’s go Bills!” Bills fan Jake Cook said.

The Buffalo Bills have had their ups and downs this season, but looking back on the last year, a lot was accomplished.

The Buffalo Bills won the AFC East Division Title and made it to the AFC Championship game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

“Getting into the AFC Championship. We didn’t win that game, but we’re starting to get back on the right track,” Cook said.

2021 was when fans could be back in the stands at Highmark Stadium to cheer the team on in-person.

“That we can go to the game, because you couldn’t last year, and that we have Josh Allen,” said Buffalo Bills fan Mary Gaca after being asked what her favorite memory of the team was in 2021.

Over the last year fans appreciation and love for members of the Bills, including Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs, continued to grow.

“Oh, I think Josh Allen when he was playing in the semifinals I think it was, he just did an amazing job. He’s such a talent,’ said Bills fan Carolyn Mirando said.

“Probably Stefon Diggs coming in the first year, the impact he had, definitely,” said Bills fan Matthew Graney. Graney’s daughter Michele added, “just watching Allen Diggs bond just form and grow was a really exciting experience in the last year.”
