The night of an AFC East title-clinching victory is the perfect time to release a hype video.
The Buffalo Bills tweeted a sterling video Sunday night after they locked up the division with a 27-10 win over the New York Jets. The work of Pegula Sports & Entertainment supervising producer Michelle Girardi Zumwalt and her team connects multiple generations of Buffalo football fans, a tidy follow to last year’s production starring Steve Tasker.
The protagonist is Darryl Talley, the legendary Bills linebacker who attempts to enter a password-protected Bills Legends Speakeasy. Talley first tries a password of “12, 34, 56,” referring to the jersey numbers of Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas and his own, before realizing it’s incorrect. His revised password, “17, 14, 21” – representing Bills’ present-day stars Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs and Jordan Poyer – allows him access to the secluded hangout.
