The Jills and company at the Bills-Bengals game

Sunday, the Bills returned to Ralph Wilson Stadium to a sold-out crowd anxious to help their team get back in the win column. Unfortunately, injuries and a few atrocious officiating calls made it a lot harder and, despite pushing past all that to get the game into overtime, the Bills fell short by a score of 27-24. Lost in all that was the play of several Bills players like rookie LB Kiko Alonso piling up 22 tackles, a stalwart performance up front by 3rd year DT Marcel Dareus and strong returns by Marquise Goodwin and newly-re-signed punter Brian Moorman, among others.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and, around the NFL, except apparently in Dallas, teams and cheerleaders add pink to their uniforms and do some other special things in honor of it. In Buffalo, breast cancer survivors form Stampede Row for pregame introductions but this year, the Jills did something extra in addition to that. They invited several local college, high school, and little league cheerleading and dance squads to join them for pregame. In total, 7 squads joined the Jills as Jills Choreographer Kelli Wagner put together yet another masterful job to integrate them all together.

Handling promotional duties for the Jills ambassadors were 2nd year vet Dana, who I still think should've joined up even sooner, and rookie Kaeleigh. If I had to pick a smile of the game like I did the last game, it'd be a tough call. Dana and  Kaeleigh were outstanding in front of the camera and Allysha was just as great as last game. Add in Katrina, Alyssa K, Melissa, Myesha, and Kristina and choosing just one...impossible.
Next up for the Jills, after the Bills return from a 2-game road trip to Miami and to New Orleans, they're back in front of the home crowd as the Bills play host to the Kansas City Chiefs on November 3rd!
