In Week 9, the Bills are plagued by two curses, and fans are bracing for a major upset.
The Buffalo Bills (5-2) are heavy favorites to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-6) on Sunday, but fans are concerned that not one, but two “curses” could derail the team’s chances in Week 9.
Despite the fact that the Bills are 14-point favorites to win, meaning they are anticipated to beat the Jaguars by more than two touchdowns, fans are wishing they would wear something other than white jerseys and blue pants on Sunday.

When the Bills wore white jerseys and blue pants in 2020, they lost all of their games. And you can guess what the Bills wore in their Monday Night Football loss to the Tennessee Titans.
For Sunday’s game in Jacksonville, the Buffalo Bills will wear white and blue uniforms.

On Sunday, the Bills will wear white jerseys with blue pants, a combination that has proven to be deadly for the franchise. On Wednesday, one admirer tweeted, “White on Blue ought to be retired and never worn again.”

During the Bills’ bye week, Buffalo Rumblings reporter Matt Warren performed a thorough dive into the jersey combo idea. Buffalo has a 43 percent win rate in white/blue (9-10) since head coach Sean McDermott took over in 2017, compared to an 80 percent win percentage (4-1) when they wear red on red.
When the Bills wear blue jerseys with white pants, they have a 65 percent win record (15-8) on the season. The club has a 61 percent win percentage when wearing white jerseys and white pants (13-8).
However, the Bills’ poorest uniform combination is blue on blue, which has a 43 percent win record (3-4), so perhaps it’s the one that has to be retired.
Is there a second curse? During Monday Night Football, Josh Allen will be on ManningCast.
