Bills Will Not Play Home Game in Toronto in 2014

The Buffalo Bills, who have played a National Football League home game in Toronto for each of the past six years, will not play one there in 2014, team president Russ Brandon said Wednesday.

The Bills had an agreement with Rogers Centre, the retractable-domed home of baseball’s Toronto Blue Jays and Canadian football’s Toronto Argonauts, that runs through 2017.

They have lost five of their six home games at Toronto, most recently last season when 38,969 spectators watched Atlanta beat Buffalo 34-31.

Instead, the Bills will play all eight regular-season home games this year at their usual home, Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The Bills have the longest-running active playoff drought in the NFL, having not reached the post-season since 1999, and the longest active run of losing seasons, having not finished with a winning ledger since 2004.
