The Buffalo Bills lost to the New York Jets Sunday by a 27-23 final. Now four and nine, they're mathematically out of the playoff race. As dismal as the result was, there was also plenty of good to come out of Sundays game too.
Sunday’s game was the 2nd annual My Cause, My Cleats contest. Each NFL team during the 2018 season gets one home game to participate in the campaign, which allows players to highlight causes or charities important to them with customized footwear. While dozens of regional and national organizations were represented, Bills safety Jordan Poyer chose to play for Rochester's Camp Good Days and Special times, a local charity that provides services to children who have been affected by cancer.
Its a charity Poyer says is close to his heart, and one he was proud to represent on a national stage.
“Camp Good Days, I went there last October and you know, just the spirit of the kids....a lot of those kids have had a significant other or themselves had cancer. Some of them have lost parents due to cancer,” Poyer said after the game. “I was able to go there last October and met a lot of those kids. It really touched my heart. It's something that I want to continue to do and I was proud to support them today."
More than 800 players in the NFL participated in My Cause, My Cleats this year. The Buffalo Bills will now prepare to host the Detroit Lions in their Week 15 match up.
