TORONTO – The Buffalo Bills and Rogers Media announced a new agreement Friday that will keep Rogers Centre as the team's second home.
Buffalo will play one regular-season game at the home of the Toronto Blue Jays for the next five years, and the new contract also includes one preseason game in 2015.
The existing five-year deal — which was worth $78 million — expired when Seattle posted a 50-17 win over Buffalo Dec. 16. But an extension had long been expected despite lingering attendance problems. Only 40,770 fans attended the Seahawks' win, far short of a sellout. Some 53,000 fans had been expected.
Buffalo, which finished 6-10 and underwent a coaching change this month, has won just one of its regular-season games in Toronto. The Bills recently extended their lease at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y., for 10 years, which should solidify the franchise's short-term future.
