Buffalo Bills 2022: News, Schedule, Roster, Score, Injury Report

The Buffalo Bills were founded in 1960 as a charter member of the American Football League (AFL) and joined the ranks of the NFL in 1970 following the NFL-AFL merger. They are the only NFL club that plays its home games in the state of New York. The franchise is owned by Terry and Kim Pegula who picked up the majority ownership tag following the death of the original owner Ralph Wilson back in 2014.

The franchise won two AFL championships back in 1964 and 1965, and these chips stand as the only major professional sports championships from a team representing Buffalo. Chiefly, the Bills found heightened success between 1990 and 1993 when they appeared in a record-setting four straight Super Bowls. However, they would go on to lose all four games.

This unparalleled success was followed by a meaningful active playoff drought making them the last NFL franchise and the last in the four major leagues to qualify for a post-season in the 21 century. The club seems to have found its footing under Head Coach Sean McDermott however, the Bills still remain the only AFC East team to have never won a Super Bowl.

The 2020 campaign of the Buffalo Bills was a resounding success as they improved on their 2019 record of 10-6 by finishing off the regular season with a 13-3 run placing 1st in the AFC East. The Bills beat the Colts 27-24 in the Wild Card Playoffs as well as the Divisional Round against the Baltimore Ravens 17-3.

However, the Bills lost the AFC championships match-up to the Kansas City Chiefs 24-28 and faltered to turn in a trip to the Super Bowl.

Logo

The current logo for the Bills is a blue leaping buffalo with a red beam running down the middle. This has been the franchise logo since 1974. Turning back the clock, the Bills original logo depicts two football players sunning alongside several buffaloes. This logo lasted from 1960 to 1961 and was subsequently changed in 1962.

The next logo depicts a brown football encompassing a Bills Player running beside a buffalo. The next change came in 1970 and led up all the way up to the modern iteration. The 1970-1973 logo saw the Bills adopt an all-red silhouette of a standing buffalo facing right.

Owner Achievements

Terrance Michael Pegula is an American billionaire businessman with a vested interest in entertainment, real estate, and natural gas development. Along with his wife Kim Pegula, he is the owner of Pegula Sports and Entertainment. The entity has stakes in the Buffalo Bills as well as the NFL’s Buffalo Sabres.

On September 14, 2014, news broke that Pegula had placed the winning bid to purchase the Buffalo Bills, a sale that went live following the death of the original owner and team founder Ralph Wilson. Once the Bills were purchased, Pegula and his wife Kim introduced One Buffalo, a marketing campaign that is now a brand used across all of their sports teams and products.

The Buffalo Bills Foundation supports organizations committed to improving the quality of life in our region. This is done through philanthropic investment in the community along with supporting NFL and team charitable initiatives. Additionally, the ‘Huddle for Hunger’ food drive has been set to collect donated food items that will benefit FeedMore feeding programs.

Pre-pandemic, FeedMoreWNY’s came out to an estimated 155,420 people including 54, 690 children who did not have adequate access to enough nutritious food to live a healthy life. By the end of 2020, this number is likely to grow and hence the Bills have ramped up the reach of their program.
