George Wilson: It's not a home game

Bills safety George Wilson pulled no punches when asked about the Bills giving up some of their home-field advantage by playing the Washington Redskins in Toronto.

Said Wilson: "It's not a home game. We're playing an international game that counts as a home game because it's relatively closer to Buffalo. We're amabassadors of the game trying to globalize the sport. So we understand that. But at the same time, it's certianly not the same environment that we have here in Ralph Wilson Stadium. ... The expectation of there's going to be just as many cheers for the Redskins as there will for us. We just have to make sure w'ere the ones making the big plays so there's no cheers for the other team."
  
Wilson continued: "You see just as many jerseys for the opposing team as you do for the Bills. They cheer for any big play regardless of which ever team makes it. So we have to do a great job of making sure we're the ones making those big plays so they're cheering for us as opposed to the Redskins."
