President of Bills reviewing Toronto series

  • Text size: + -

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Following a loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Toronto on Sunday, the Bills said they are reviewing the Bills Toronto Series moving forward.

Bills president and CEO Russ Brandon made the announcement on WGR 550 Sports Radio Wednesday morning.

The Bills began the series back in 2008 as a way to tap into Southern Ontario to increase its fan base, sending one regular season game across the border to be played at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.

Many fans have complained that the stadium is a neutral site and has not given the Bills home-field advantage.

Brandon said the series has helped the team remain viable in Western New York, but nothing is more important than winning.

"My focus in this organization is simple, and that is to put ourselves in a position to win championships and sustain success," Brandon said. "Period. Nothing, nothing comes above that."

The Bills are 1-5 in regular season games in Toronto since the series began.

The series currently runs through 2017.
