Inside the Bills:
Former Bills and Patriots QB Drew Bledsoe will be an honorary captain for the Pats this Sunday prior to the AFC Championship game against Baltimore. He had a conference call with New England media on Friday and had these comments about his time in Buffalo.
“I had a great time in Buffalo,” he said. “I really did. The fans in Buffalo are ultra-loyal. Having that rivalry for a bunch of years where they didn’t like me and I didn’t like them, going there and being welcomed like I was and playing there for a few years, I really enjoyed it. I have some great affection for that organization and particularly for the fans of Buffalo. I wish them all the best.”
Bledsoe played three seasons for the Bills from 2002-2004 and never missed a start. His record with Buffalo was 23-25.

The Patriots hosted their weekly in-house show, All-Access, from owner Robert Kraft’s house last night, and the show featured a few of the honorary captains for today’s game.
