After a disastrous start to the season, the Bills returning to New Era Field on Sunday for the home opener against the Chargers.
The Bills went 6-and-2 last season, which was tied for the second- best mark in the NFL last season.
Something to think about ahead of the home opener: Playing on home turf could be an added benefit for rookie Josh Allen who will be making his first career start on Sunday.
The loud and rowdy crowd can also make it tough on opposing teams.
“Oh it’s huge,” head coach Sean McDermott said of the Bills’ home field advantage. “We talk about defending our dirt quite a bit here playing in front of our fans to me one of the most passionate fan base in the NFL goes a long way towards creating a home field advantage and giving our guys some energy and making it loud on opposing quarterbacks being able to do that is very beneficial for us.”
