New Review: Buffalo Bills

While lavish new stadia pop up all around the country, the home of the Buffalo Bills reflects the character of the city; blue-collar, workmanlike, modest. Special Correspondent takes an updated look at New Era Field in Orchard Park, New York.

It is almost hard to believe that while peer NFL cities have almost all replaced their venues, some after only twenty year runs, Buffalo's stadium remains intact and functional, even now while in its fifth decade of service. Now named New Era Field, this facility was originally named Rich Stadium and then Ralph Wilson Stadium. The stadium has undergone numerous upgrades and renovations to bring the facility to current NFL standards, and while the building is nowhere even close of the opulence of newer venues in such places as Dallas, Indianapolis or Minnesota, New Era Field serves up an old school football experience with some of the modern touches. The Buffalo Bills are in the middle of a 10 year lease with Eire County which doesn't run out until 2022.
