Delta has flights from Buffalo, and prices Monday for Saturday departures ranged from $544 to $1,171. But that includes a return trip Monday, since Sunday’s return flights were too close to the end of the Bills game to allow getting to the airport on time. And that means absorbing the cost of two hotel nights, not one.
So, the relative apathy at games means there aren’t many diehards likely to freak out at the sight of invading fans.
A check on the Trivago website found a number of hotels available within close distance. The Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, 1 mile from the Jaguars’ home, was asking $138 for a room Monday. The Hilton Garden Inn, 1.2 miles from the stadium, sought $189.
Let’s say you’re contemplating a trip to Jacksonville, Fla., to root for the Bills in their playoff game this weekend, and you’re not a snow bird.
OK, half-kidding here. The Jaguars ranked 29th in attendance in the NFL last year, and Bleacher Report puts the Jacksonville stadium next to last in atmosphere.
