Bills SS George Wilson Says Game In Toronto Is Not A Home Game
On Sunday, the Buffalo Bills will host the Washington Redskins at the Rodgers Centre in Toronto. Having played a few games in Toronto, Bills safety and special teams captain George Wilson appreciates the fans the team has in Canada, but says there is no home field advantage when they play north of the border. "It's not a home game. We're playing an international game that counts as a home game because it's relatively closer to Buffalo," Wilson said via Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News. "We're ambassadors of the game, trying to globalize the sport. So we understand that. But at the same time, it's certainly not the same environment that we have here in Ralph Wilson Stadium. "The expectation is there's going to be just as many cheers for the Redskins as there will for us. We just have to make sure we're the ones making the big plays so there's no cheers for the other team."
