It’s the Divisional round of the NFL playoffs… we don’t have to tell you, but we’ll more-so remind you. What the Buffalo Bills just did? Topping the Baltimore Ravens, 17-3? You weren’t the only one watching, Western New York.
Everyone was… and they loved it just like you.
As the Bills earned their trip to the AFC Championship game next week against either the Kansas City Chiefs or Cleveland Browns, here’s a roundup of national reactions to Buffalo’s win:

No disrespect to any other NFL city/stadium but if I could only pick one moment for one stadium to be full, that was it, Buffalo…

Congratulations to the Buffalo Bills who are back in the AFC Championship Game for the first time in 27 years. I’m really happy for my former coach Leslie Frazier. I thought he had a great defensive plan tonight.

The median age in Buffalo is 32.7 years old.
Approximately 37% of Buffalo wasn't alive in January 1994, the last time the Bills played in the AFC Championship game.

If #TimRussert, God bless him, were with us, @MeetThePress tomorrow would be wall-to-wall interviews with players and coaches of @BuffaloBills, plus random #Buffalonians, and it would have been a very welcome one hour’s relief from everything else going on in this country.

Bills have won 8 in a row, and it would be 12 in a row if not for the Hail Mary caught by DeAndre Hopkins
