The Buffalo Bills and #BillsMafia are in their glory. They haven’t had time to celebrate an AFC East championship since 1995 and they are reveling.
And, they won a FOX contest for the best fans in football. The prize was a billboard and it could be placed at the location of their choice.
So, of course, #BillsMafia decided to rub it into their New England Patriots’ brethren and decided to have the billboard down the road apiece from Gillette Stadium, home of the deposed AFC East champs who saw an 11-year postseason run snapped.
We won the @NFLonFOX Ultimate Fan Bracket.
The prize was a billboard anywhere in the world…

The Boston Globe reminded Bills’ fans their geography is a bit off … the billboard isn’t exactly in the Patriots’ hometown.

Located on Route 1 down the road from Gillette Stadium, the billboard reads “The best fans in football” and features photos of fans. It has quickly became a tourist destination for Buffalo diehards.
But it’s important to note: Despite the initial fan vote, the billboard is actually located in Wrentham, not Foxborough.
