How popular are the Buffalo Bills in Western New York?

A search of the Buffalo News website to see how many times Josh Allen’s name was included in stories on Jan. 15, the day before the Buffalo Bills’ playoff victory over the Baltimore Ravens, yielded 11 articles. A similar search for Donald Trump showed the president appeared in just two more articles than the Bills quarterback.

As for the president-elect, Joe Biden’s name appeared in 25 stories, more than Allen and Trump combined.
