ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Buffalo Bills will have a chance to become the first team since 2006 to win consecutive road games in the same stadium when they return to New Jersey, this time to play the New York Giants.
It is a unconventional note to start the season on, admittedly. Two away games, two different teams, but the same venue both weeks: MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Bills veteran linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, a player in the league since 2005, says he's never had this type of scheduling event ever happen before, but it does have its advantages.
"It's unique, but the nice thing about it is, it's local," he said. "It's only a 45-minute flight and we're able to get back into a routine this week, so it's kind of cool. You feel like you're back there and we won, so you have confidence there. It's actually a plus for us, I think."
The old saying goes that nobody circles the wagons like the Buffalo Bills, and Alexander says that holds true, especially at Metlife. There, plenty of Bills fans make the trip.
"It actually kind of felt like a home game, because they were so loud, especially on some penalties. I thought they were against us, but in actuality it was against the Jets, they were cheering so loud. I expect them to be out there again cheering us on in that stadium," he said.
The Bills take on the Giants on Sunday at 1 p.m.
