Jerry Hughes felt like there were 20,000 fans at Bills game

The Bills welcomed fans for a home game for the first time this season on Saturday and defensive end Jerry Hughes credited them with helping pave the way to their 27-24 victory.

Hughes said the “crowd was amazing all game giving us that energy and supplying us with that noise that we need down there to make it harder on the offense to communicate.” There were 6,700 fans in supplying that noise and Hughes said it felt like a lot more voices were involved.

“I know that they said it was only supposed to be 6,000 people, but it felt like 15, 20,000,” Hughes said, via Matt Parrino of NewYorkUpstate.com. “I tell the guys they’re still just getting a taste of Bills Mafia. When they’re able to come back in the stadium full fledge, you’ll really be able to feel them.”

The Bills will be home again next weekend and the team hasn’t announced plans for having fans in the stands for that game yet. Assuming they do get the green light to open the gates again, Hughes will be happy for anyone that turns out for the divisional round.

  1. Bills QB Josh Allen is the youngest QB in NFL History to throw for 300+ yards and 70+% in a playoff game.
    Finally, we have a QB that is a fully armed Abrams TANK, with high intelligence, respect for others, and a humble character. Wait until 70K+ are in the stands.

  2. It’s absolutely crazy to think that in 3 years #17 went from being one of the most maligned qbs ever drafted to one of the best football players on this planet. That ascent to the top of the football world should be motivation for anyone who’s told they can’t, or aren’t good enough. This proves as much as any player maybe ever that with hard work and a good attitude, you can achieve your goals.

    Now, I’d love to see him drop a cameo in State Farm commercials with Rodgers and mahomes. Now that would be epic to have all 3 in there.

  3. Assuming health, the Bills should be a force for a couple good years for sure, maybe more if they manage salaries/players effectively.

    completely agree. he just has to know when to take a sack in a playoff game. back to back years where a bonehead play almost cost the bills a win.

    That whole game was on Allen’s shoulders. He made one mistake.

    Is that the standard for him? ZERO mistakes allowed? I watched games all day – QB’s like Wilson & Brady made mistakes of their own. Every QB did. I don’t get the different standard for Allen.

  6. Shouldn’t be aloud to have any since other teams were not allowed to have any. NFL needs to step and go something about this
