6,700 fans may attend 2nd Buffalo Bills playoff game, Cuomo says

BUFFALO-BILLS

(WBNG) -- Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Monday that 6,700 Buffalo Bills fans may attend the team's second home playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday.

The same number of fans were allowed into Bills Stadium for the team's first playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts.

The limited number of fans is due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Cuomo called the implementation a success.

"It was a great joy to see the Buffalo Bills win their first home playoff game in more than two decades in front of thousands of New York fans on Saturday, and we're looking forward to extending that winning streak this week," Governor Cuomo said in a news release.

Buffalo Bills Owners Kim and Terry Pegula said they want to thank their fans for following the health and safety guidelines for the first playoff game.

"We felt the energy from our fans last Saturday at the stadium and we know our coaches and players appreciated the support on the field. We have worked with the Governor, his team, and BioReference to ensure we will host fans again on Saturday night," they said.

However, fans will still not be able to participate in tailgating. Fans are also asked to gather in large parties before or after the game to limit the spread of COVID-19.

The Bills defeated the Colts 27 to 24.
