The Buffalo Bills exercised some demons on Sunday when they defeated the Kansas City Chiefs. However, the best story of the day was Jordan Poyer driving 15-hours to play the game.
Poyer has been playing with injured ribs, and he wasn’t cleared to fly with the team to Kansas City. Instead of staying in Buffalo and being scratched from the game, Poyer jumped in the car and made the drive to Arrowhead Stadium.
There’s a lot of controversy surrounding Poyer. Poyer hasn’t been happy with his contract situation, and there’s a good chance Poyer will leave the Bills next season. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t admire Poyer’s sacrifice for the team.
When Poyer isn’t playing, it’s a significant loss for Buffalo. Despite winning both games, the Bills struggled defensively without Poyer. Sean McDermott was probably ecstatic to have him back on the field. Poyer also continues to admire Bills fans who appreciate what he does for Buffalo.
Jordan Poyer plays with his heart on his sleeve and leaves everything out on the field. You’d have to imagine that his teammates appreciate his effort.
Poyer was already a fan favourite; this event elevated him to legendary status.
