    Bills won't play in Toronto this year

    That's too bad, we could always count on a Bills loss there.

    Such a move appeared to be very difficult thanks to the five-year renewal of the agreement to play the games across the border that the Bills signed in 2013. Difficult or not, the Bills and Brandon appear to have pulled it off.

    Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News reports that the Bills are expected to announce that they won’t play a game in Toronto during the 2014 season and that they will play their entire home schedule in Buffalo as a result. Per Gaughan, they have been “working diligently” with Toronto partner Rogers Media about moving this year’s game back to the U.S..

    It’s unclear if this would be a permanent end to the series or a mere hiatus after the team played in Canada for the last six seasons. They’ve won just one of those games and there have been complaints about the lack of a home field advantage when the team takes the field at Rogers Centre. That won’t be the case at an eighth game at the Ralph.

    Statement from the Bills.

    “The Buffalo Bills and Rogers are committed to delivering a first-class NFL experience to Canadians. As such, we have postponed for one year the scheduled 2014 regular season game at Rogers Centre in Toronto, and that game will return to Ralph Wilson Stadium. We will use this time to collectively evaluate opportunities and build on the foundation to enhance future games.

    We are committed to continuing our partnership and have secured a robust sponsorship agreement for the 2014 season that will bring Canadian NFL fans visibility and access to the Bills. The sponsorship includes ticketing, merchandising, media exposure, and a newly created Canada House, near Ralph Wilson Stadium, that will serve as the official pre-game Canadian tailgate zone for all Bills home games.

    The NFL remains very popular in Canada and we are dedicated to enriching the experience for the fans.”
