Former Buffalo Bills receiver Terrell Owens to be featured as ‘Legend of the Game’ at Monday night game
BUFFALO, N.Y. (WHEC) —Get your popcorn ready, Bills fans! NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver and former Buffalo Bill Terrell Owens will be honored during Buffalo’s primetime game next Monday night.
The team announced Thursday Owens, who spent just one season in Bills uniform, will be the "Legend of the Game" as Buffalo hosts the New England Patriots.
In Owens’ lone season in 2009, he took in 55 catches for 829 yards and five touchdowns. He also added a score on the ground during what would be a 4-12 season. While only around for a cup of coffee and a plate of wings, "T.O." did set two Bills records: longest play from scrimmage and longest reception touchdown, which he picked up on a 98-yard touchdown catch against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
As part of being the featured guest, the team said Owens will surprise a fan at their seat. The team last hosted former running back Marshawn Lynch as the legend when they hosted the Indianapolis Colts.
Kickoff for Monday’s game is set for 8:15 p.m. on ESPN. Of course, you can catch coverage before and after the game on News10NBC.
