The Buffalo Bills are off to a 4-0 start on the season but their fans haven’t gotten to see them live at the stadium due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bills’ defensive tackle Harrison Phillips took to Twitter Monday morning asking New York Governor Andrew Cuomo what they can do in order for the state to allow fans inside of the stadium for their next home game, which is their Week 6 Thursday Night Football matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
It's crazy Bills Mafia, we are 4-0! We work so damn hard to win for you and this city. We need the chance to have y'all in our stadium next home game. Is there anything we can do @NYGovCuomo? We can get creative, there's gotta be a safe win win solution!

The Democratic governor said last week he will soon tour Bills Stadium and meet with team brass to discuss the possibility of a limited number of fans attending games in Orchard Park in the coming weeks.
The Bills, however, announced at the end of last month that there would be no fans allowed inside of Bills Stadium for the foreseeable future.
“We promise you we are working diligently behind the scenes to ensure we are ready to provide fans with a safe environment should protocols change and we are able to root for the Bills in person,” the team said.
The team originally announced in August that it wouldn’t have fans present for the first two home games.
Cuomo said during a press conference today that “Western New York is a hot spot.”
Cuomo noted he’s a “big Bills fan myself, as you know. And we’re excited about the season, and so I’m 100% eager to get fans back into games.”
Bills long snapper Reid Ferguson also tweeted at Cuomo:
#BillsMafia we are missing your energy and noise in the stadium this year! We know you have what it takes to watch safely at Bills Stadium. We want the chance to have y’all for our next home game! There has to be a win/win solution for everybody @NYGovCuomo
