Raider Nation Invasion
Oakland Raider fans from throughout the Eastern United States and Canada have traveled to Buffalo, New York. They partied last night (17 September 2011) at Soho Bar. They are planning a tailgate party this morning before the game in the stadium's parking lot.
While Raiders fans are expected be be scattered throughout the stadium, raiders fans are aiming to turn section 101 into Black Hole East.
