#BillsMafia — you've got an ally here at Gaming Society. Her name is Kate Magdziuk (hey, that's me!)

My favorite team is (unfortunately) the Pittsburgh Steelers, and we're now waist-deep in a full rebuild. I'm in need of a rooting interest to keep me invested this season (no, my 16 fantasy leagues are not enough).

So, I thought to myself, "Which team is winning the Super Bowl this year? Yeah, I wanna root for that team." My answer to that question is none other than the Buffalo Bills.

Here's why me, a sad Steelers fan, is all-in on backing the Bills to win Super Bowl LVII.

They're really freakin' good.

Their roster, top to bottom, is special. From their franchise quarterback, to the WR duo of Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis, to the addition of Von Miller, sack machine, who's dominating opposing QBs... I could go on and on. Their biggest weakness might be the offensive line, but the good news is Josh Allen is a literal superhuman and good enough to overcome it.

Josh Allen. End of sentence.

The Bills' franchise quarterback continues to build on his already incredible career. Is it possible he's already outplaying his $258 million contract? Josh Allen in 2022:

  • Leads NFL in passing yards (1,980)

  • Tied with Patrick Mahomes to lead NFL in passing TDs (17)

  • 3rd-best NFL passer rating of 109.1 (Behind who else but Bailey Zappe and Tua Tagovailoa... wait, what?)

If the stat sheet's not enough, we've got more. Allen's producing true MVP vibes on and off the field. Check out this wholesome goodness.

The only question left to be answered here is who was more excited by Josh Allen's good deed — the kid or his dad? My vote is for the dad but it doesn't make my heart any less warm watching.

Jordan Poyer showed us the culture of the team this weekend. And it's beautiful.

Bills safety Jordan Poyer is recovering from a collapsed lung. And though he was cleared to return to play in Week 6, he was not cleared to travel. Something about air pressure, yadda, yadda... You get the gist.

Poyer wanted to play, though. In order to make it happen, this man took a 15+ hour car ride from Buffalo to Kansas City. Let's give it up for the All-Pro safety who endured what was probably the least-scenic drive in the history of drives to show up for his team. Poyer notched three solo tackles and an assisted tackle in their win over the Chiefs.

All of that is to say, I'm betting the Bills odds to win Super Bowl 57 at +290 — AKA, bet $10 and win $29.
