Yeah think you will have to shame it isn't at Wembley as there is 25k capacity difference from WHL and would make obtaining tickets slightly easier.

Going to have the joys of Ticketmaster trying to get some for the Pats in Germany. I don’t fancy the chances to be honest.

As it happens for me I have a season ticket for the Tottenham games so will have X2 for the Bills. Depending when the game is scheduled I might well be on holiday in Vegas so if that’s the case and any of you are struggling to get any will happily let you have them.

Can't you wait until the game is scheduled and then book your holiday, just to make sure you'll be away? :cool1: But seriously that would be a great gesture. Am sure you'd have zero problem getting rid of them anyway even if not to anyone here.

Hope Mahomes is fit for the rest of the playoffs. Obviously that makes it harder for the Bills to beat them should we win tonight (which I'm not uber confident of) but you want the best players playing, don't you.

Didn't see any of the Eagles game from last night but that scoreline is more emphatic than I thought it'd be. I feel like people have been all in on hyping up the Niners and sleeping a little on the 14-3 #1 seed Eagles. I think I've been guilty of that. That score last night maybe a reminder for some folk who the top dog has been all season.

It is already booked mate but it goes into early October and that’s usually when they schedule the games so we’ll see. Hoping the schedulers do me a solid and have us at the Raiders while am there. Yet to see a game over there so would like to tick that off. The International Series games are great but nothing like the real thing.

This looks proper football weather in Buffalo. Nothing beats a snow game. Going with Buffalo just but my feeling is regardless of Mahomes status this is probably the tougher task for Buffalo just based on the matchup.

Still nothing to change my mind on the Niners being far and away the best.

I would respectfully suggest to Buffalo that playing off coverage against the Cincy receivers is straight up not working. Going to end up a blowout if they don’t tighten that up.

Your preaching to the choir there it frustrates the hell out of me how much soft coverage Fraser plays and the teams with good receivers burn us consistently and it's not just this season

That was a pretty conclusive victory. Never looked a minute that Buffalo were threatening the win. That Cincy offense with those outside weapons are a problem. Personally I think they’ll go to Arrowhead and win that too.

Going to be a pretty long off season for Buffalo but they’re still far and away the class of our division and if can go away and retool a little no reason they won’t be in mix again next season.

edit to add: I'd fear for us more against the Bengals than I would the Chiefs right now too despite the latter being the #1 seed. I know what it looks like for the Bills to beat KC and I can see Burrow and his WRs just torching us tbh. Think we'd need a stellar offensive performance to keep up with them.

Ah yeah, I hope you get a Pats game in LV while you're there mate. Hadn't even though of that being a possibility. Long shot ofc but hope it happens. If the Raiders are at home while you're there but it ain't the Pats, would you go anyway? Reckon I would whoever they were playing if I was in town. Like you say, it be the real thing no matter who the teams are.

On tonight, Bills were just wank tbh. I said that what I quoted up there last week before the Dolphins game that I feared Cincy more than I did KC. The way the teams are built is just a bad matchup for us. Came true.

Fuck it, I'm a Niners fan now until mid February. Aside from about three hours next Saturday night when I'll be supporting the Bengals in Arrowhead.

Don't think RavenBish reads this place anymore but if you do, congrats on tonight. Only Bengals fan I've ever known of in the wild.

Priority No1 is sorting out the O-line it's been an issue also I feel we need much better Outside receiver help other than Diggs they are inconsistent and on the Defense I think a lot of the problems is scheme whether that means coaching changes will be interesting to see.

I expect I would to be honest, the Pats would just be an added bonus just to say I’d done it. Don’t know if .V. still comes on here but he always used to post some great shots of when he’d go over to see a game over there. Suppose one thing if it is the Pats then there is a more than significant chance Brady might be on the Raiders team at that point which could be fun.

I’m really pleased we’ve got BOB back as the OC. Thankfully that failed experiment is now consigned to the past, was pure arrogance from BB to ever think it would work. Not saying Mac will suddenly turn into Peyton Manning or owt like that but can he be a Kirk Cousins? I think he can with good coaching.
