The Buffalo Bills will reunite with their fans for the playoffs.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday that a limited number of fans can be accepted into Bills Stadium for the playoffs. Protocols surrounding COVID-19 had prevented the presence of fans in the stands since the start of the season.
The plan says 6,772 supporters will be admitted to the stands, but they must have tested negative for COVID-19.
With a 12-3 record, the Bills are sure to play a home playoff game for the first time in 25 years.
