3 Buffalo Bills named among the NFL's most important

The Pegulas and Kathryn Smith were named by USA TODAY.

USA TODAY put together a list of the 100 most important people in the NFL and the Buffalo Bills were represented on the list. The owners of the Bills, Terry and Kim Pegula, were named, as well as Kathryn Smith, Buffalo's Quality Control-Special Teams coach.

The Pegulas came in at No. 49. Here's what was said about the owners of the Bills:

49. Terry and Kim Pegula

Buffalo Bills owners. The husband-and-wife team is committed to western New York, but their looming stadium issue is tricky and worth watching.

Smith, the NFL's first female coach was listed at No. 20. 

20. Kathryn Smith

Buffalo Bills quality control and special teams coach. She is the first full-time female assistant coach in league history. Smith was Buffalo coach Rex Ryan’s administrative assistant last season and served several roles before that under Ryan with the New York Jets, including college scouting intern in 2005 and, two years later, a full-time player personnel assistant.
