Bills fans show Western New York pride ahead of wild card game

From City Hall in Buffalo to businesses across the region, it's easy to see the enthusiasm fans have as the NFL playoff game draws near.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Bills fans in Houston may be excited for the big game Saturday, but you don't have to be in Texas to feel that energy. 

Everyone at Buffalo's City Hall came down with Bills fever Friday afternoon during a rally in advance of the AFC wild card game against the Texans.

During that rally, Mayor Byron Brown said the Houston Texans might want to adhere to his warning come this Saturday.

"Someone at NASA once said Houston is going to have a problem on Saturday. Houston is going to have a big problem on Saturday. What's the problem? The Bills are going to do what? Win! " Brown said.

And if you take a look around Western New York, you'll notice some businesses are also putting their Buffalo Bills pride on display. 

Mooney's Sport's Bar, Union Fire Company and Picasso's are just a few of them.

If you’re not headed to Houston to catch this weekend’s playoff game, there’s plenty of places here in Western New York to watch and get a bite.

One restaurant in particular, Santora’s Pizza Pub and Grill in Williamsville, has been taking calls since the Bills faced off against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"We’ve been completely booked solid for, probably all through the week," Paul Santora told 2 On Your Side on Thursday.

Even the animals at the Buffalo Zoo showed off their Bills pride.

One of the Buffalo Zoo's California sea lions got into the Bills spirit with the "Shout" song.

Sea Lion cove was decked out in some Bills signs and footballs as well on Friday, a day before the big game.
