Buffalo Bills

  1. Three Bills defensive backs were the main characters of Graham Greene’s novel, The Comedians.
  2. Former head coach, Marv Levy, was known to make prank calls to Buffalo area radio stations, pretending to be a Nigerian prince. He supplemented his coaching income that way, too.
  3. The Bills are the only NFL team to make ten consecutive Super Bowls and lose each one with a missed field goal; the Vikings also made ten consecutive Super Bowls but were blown out in each one.
  4. In 2005, former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly was inducted into the Mentos Hall of Fame for his contributions to scotch mints.
  5. Since 2011, the most popular concession at the Bills’ New Era Field has been potatoes. Not potato fries or chips. Just potatoes.
