9. An Abby Anderson style anthem
Black River Entertainment’s very own Abby Anderson will be in Orchard Park this Sunday to sing the national anthem. Eager to share her unique sound, the up-and-coming songwriter and artist is sure to impress.
8. Going back-to-back
When the Broncos ride into town, it’ll mark the second AFC opponent the Bills have faced at New Era Field this season. With a victory, the Bills will have started the season 2-0 at home for the first time since 2011. We like the sound of that.
7. Two tough defenses on display
Worlds will collide this weekend, as two of the NFL’s top defensive units square off. With the Bills sitting at second overall in total defense and the Broncos just two spots behind, this matchup has all the makings of a defensive slug fest. Who’s ready?
6. Sack alert!
Buffalo’s pass rush is firing on all cylinders. Meaning, it could be a long day for Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian. The red-hot unit posted six sacks during Week 2 and is gearing up to tack on a few more.
This Sunday with New Era, we’re circling the wagons!

2. Can Poyer make it three?
1. Defend the turf
Over the last decade, New Era Field has proven a tough place for the Broncos to play. Allowing Denver just one win at home since 2007, the Bills have done what it takes to defend their turf. It’ll be a challenge, but the Bills boys are looking to keep their streak alive as they go to battle this Sunday.
