The potential for one of the biggest weekends in recent Buffalo sports history is upon us. So the Roost is in a week-long party mode.
The Bills are back from the dead and have a legitimate shot at the playoffs. They play the Patriots, the cream of the NFL’s crop Sunday night on NBC. With Madden and Michaels in the house, we’re all pretty convinced that this could be the greatest game ever played or the biggest loss in Buffalo sports history. There is no middle ground. And we can’t wait for it.
Also, the Sabres play the Ottawa Senators, the best team in the NHL, on Thursday night. It’s the first time the Sabres have taken on the Sens since last year’s playoffs, so it’s obviously a pretty big deal. And being the obsessive hockey fans we are, we’re pretty pumped for this game, despite how bad the Sabres have been lately.
And don’t forget about the UB Football team. A win on Saturday at home against conference rival Bowling Green puts the Bulls in the driver’s seat in their quest for the first division title in school history. Winning out also makes them eligible for a bowl game.
Tall tasks for Buffalo all around. With such an exciting week ahead, we present Juggernaut Week, where we’re just going to go nuts. BYOB.
To kick things off, a clip of Roost favorite Marshawn Lynch cruising around the field in an injury cart from his days at Cal. Money knows how to party.
