It’s been a really tough year for Buffalo fans and the entire community. Damar Hamlin’s on-field cardiac arrest, multiple major injuries throughout the year, and to top it all off, a paralyzing blizzard getting out of hand for a winter-ready Buffalo. Above 40 people died in the natural calamity that even required a Bills’ home game to shift over to Ford Field because of the snow.
