Ed Oliver was arrested Saturday evening on a DWI charge. The incident took place in Montgomery County, Texas. He was also charged with unlawful possession of a weapon. OLIVER WAS DRAFTED LAST YEAR WITH THE 9th OVERALL PICK. THE DEFENSIVE TACKLE HAD A STANDOUT ROOKIE SEASON, RECORDING 43 TACKLES AND 5 SACKS. THE BILLS RELEASED A STATEMENT THAT THEY ARE GATHERING MORE INFORMATION. DISAPPOINTED BY THIS UNFORTUNATE INCIDENT, WE LOOK FOR ANSWERS AS 1BUFFALO.

That is followed by another home game on August 29th with the Colts. They close out the preseason with the Lions on the road on September 3rd. THE SCHEDULE IS TENTATIVE. NO ONE YET KNOWS WHETHER THE GAMES WILL BE PLAYED OR DELAYED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OR WHETHER FANS WILL BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND. SOBERED BY THIS UNCERTAINTY, WE HOPE FOR THE BEST AS 1BUFFALO.

IT HAS NOT SIDELINED HIS OFFSEASON REGIMEN. LOOKING FOR GOOD PRACTICES IN ADVANCE OF TRAINING CAMP, WE FOLLOW INTENTLY AS 1BUFFALO.

Night games may be broadcast at the Transit Drive-In. The Lockport venue is seeking permission from the league to show the 4 prime time contests.

THE STADIUM SEATING WILL LIKELY BE LIMITED TO A PERCENTAGE OF CAPACITY. SPORTS BARS WILL SIMILARLY BE RESTRICTED AS TO THE NUMBER OF PATRONS. ENCOURAGED BY THE DRIVE-INS OFFER OF FREE SHOWINGS, WE SALUTE THEIR GENEROSITY AS 1BUFFALO.

Mark Poloncarz has said that seating at home games may be limited. The Erie County Executive predicted that there will not be full houses this year. Only a percentage of overall capacity may be allowed. IT IS UNCLEAR WHETHER THE SEASON WILL BEGIN AS ANNOUNCED EARLIER THIS WEEK. THE BILLS ARE SET TO HOST THE JETS ON SEPTEMBER 13th. THAT MAY BE PUSHED BACK AS CONDITIONS WARRANT. POLONCARZ STRESSED THAT THE PRIMARY CONCERN IS THE SAFETY OF FANS. THE DECISION WILL BE MADE BY THE NFL IN CONJUNCTION WITH STATE AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES. RECOGNIZING THE OVERRIDING HEALTH ISSUES, WE ACCEPT THE EVENTUAL DETERMINATION AS 1BUFFALO.
3 more draftees have signed rookie contracts. The Bills have reached agreement with AJ Epenesa, Jake Fromm, and Gabriel Davis. That leaves only one draft pick unsigned. THE FRONT OFFICE HAS WISELY AVOIDED THE DISTRACTION OF PLAYER HOLDOUTS. WITH ALL THE CHALLENGES CONFRONTING THIS YEARS CLASS THE POTENTIAL FOR CONTRACT STALEMATES HAS BEEN AVERTED. GRATEFUL TO HAVE THE YOUNG PLAYERS ON BOARD, WE UNITE WITH THEM AS 1BUFFALO.
The Bills will appear in 4 Prime Time Games. That is the most since 1996. They take on the defending Super Bowl Champions Chiefs and NFC Titlist 49ers before a national audience. They also will meet the Patriots and Steelers in prime time. THE NATIONAL EXPOSURE HIGHLIGHTS THE RENEWED INTEREST IN THE BILLS. HAVING WON 10 GAMES LAST YEAR AND ADVANCED TO THE PLAYOFFS, THERE IS BUZZ ABOUT OUR PROSPECTS. THE BLOCKBUSTER TRADE FOR STEFON DIGGS HEIGHTENS THE EXCITEMENT. REVELING IN THE RECOGNITION, WE CELEBRATE AS 1BUFFALO.
