Entering the season of 2020, Brandon Beane, General Manager, Buffalo Bills, said that the objective of the team was to host a game in the playoffs. The Bills won their 1st AFC East Cup since 1995 by winning 48-19 on Saturday. They locked their 2nd straight berth in the playoffs along with a home game come January.
Sean McDermott, Bills coach talked about being happy and thankful for the club fans. He described it cool to be part of the team due to the character and work ethic of the citizens of Buffalo. Dion Dawkins, left tackle, said that it was special because the Buffalo Bills had been waiting for the title for around 25 years. It is a feeling which is unexpected and unexplainable.
McDermott and Beane: Leaders Of Buffalo Bills
The cup is the current milestone in Bills’ turnaround under McDermott and Beane who has taken the club to the berth of playoffs in 3 out of the first 4 seasons. Both McDermott and Beane received contract extensions of multiyear in August. Beane is grateful for taking his job and getting the opportunity of leading the club to relevance. Beane said that the team and community had a major tradition in the early 90s and late 80s following which the club fell to a lower level in 2000 when Sean and Beane got into the club. This was a huge opportunity for them to lead a franchise that had a decorative tradition and a huge fan base.
