  • Players distracted by the gnawing fear Giants QB Eli Manning will access Bills locker room and steal their jewelry.
  • It’s impossible to find a New York City restaurant that will seat a table of 53.
  • Players know Bills fans will tune out after halftime to watch the must-see game between the 3-7-2 Sabres and the 1-10-1 Coyotes.
  • Players become easily distracted from the site of Al Roker in the stands.
  • Players in contract years will feel obligated to spend Sunday at the Pegula’s raking leaves.
  • Jets fan Fireman Ed will deter Bills fans from setting themselves ablaze.
  • Players forget hotel’s free weekday breakfast buffet ends one hour earlier than on weekends forcing Pegula’s to splurge on hotel vending machine Pop Tarts.
