Buffalo Bills are Number One!

Filed under: Buffalo Bills, Sports

That’s right, Buffalo, after the long years of heartbreak, Bills fans can finally go spilling into the streets to tip over cars and climb up on the greasy undercarriages to shout WE ARE NUMBER ONE!

Well, not in the standings, and not because we won the Super Bowl, but because—according to a story in today’s Wall Street Journal—the Buffalo Bills are the handsomest team in the NFL.

From the article: The most attractive sample of players, with an average facial symmetry rating of 99.47, was one of the worst teams in the league: the Buffalo Bills. Their record last season was a woeful 4-12.

It should be noted that the WSJ isn’t guarantying that our good looks will translate into glory on the gridiron this year: To be clear, we’re not saying there’s any proven connection between winning football teams and good looks. If anything, it may be an inverse relationship: Teams with particularly attractive players might be guilty of favoring people who are more presentable than talented.

(Pictured: Bills lineman Tom Sestack, who dominated the line of scrimmage, and was the cornerstone of a defense that led the team to consecutive AFL championships in 1964 and 1965—before the Super Bowl era.)
