Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York, is home to some of the most hardened fans of one of the National Football League’s most tortured franchises. The Buffalo Bills have had more Super Bowl misfortune than any other team, yet their superfans, lovingly nicknamed the Bills Mafia, continue to show up week after week in all sorts of weather.

Even after the seasons change from fall to winter, members of the Bills Mafia show up annually in some of the worst weather conditions football can possibly be played in. As the playoffs begin in January and the intensity of games increases, the temperatures in Buffalo plummet and fans get creative to stay warm.

For Sean Reardon, this game will be unlike any other he’s ever attended.

“I was at the 2008 Buffalo Bills and Patriots game where the wind was extremely crazy. The goalposts were blowing down, part of the training center roof blew off,” Reardon recalled in an interview with AccuWeather. “That weather was nuts. That was cold, wicked windy, but nothing like what I’m imagining the temperature is going to be like on Saturday.”
