The Buffalo Bills are a professional football team based in Buffalo, New York. They are members of the East Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The Bills are the only team to win four consecutive conference championships, and are the only NFL team to play in four consecutive Super Bowl games, all of which they lost. They have had one owner, Ralph Wilson, and in their fifty-three years of existence, they have featured many prominent and popular players, including Jack Kemp, Cookie Gilchrist, Bob Kalsu, O.J. Simpson, Bruce Smith, Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, and Andre Reed. The team is currently led by head coach Chan Gailey and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Since 1973, the Bills have played home games in the Buffalo suburb of Orchard Park. The Bills are the only NFL team to play their home games within New York state. (Both the New York Giants and New York Jets play in East Rutherford, New Jersey.) Since the 2008 NFL season the Bills have played one regular season home game per season in Toronto as part of the Bills Toronto Series. The team is one of only two to play regular home games outside of the United States (the St Louis Rams is the other). The Bills conduct summer training camp at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford, New York, an eastern suburb of Rochester.
