Monday Night Football is in town tonight and the Bills are taking on the Patriots in what could be considered the biggest game of the season.  What do you need to know about it?

There is a lot at stake tonight for The Bills.  They are taking on the Patriots who are sitting as the #1 seed in the AFC right now.  Who would have thought we would be here at this point in the year?

If you're headed to the game, here are 10 things you need to know:

1.  You will need to show proof of vaccination to get in.  This includes all guests who are 12 years old and older.  Proof will be accepted by showing your physical vaccination card, NYS Excelsior Pass, CLEAR Digital Vaccine Card, Canadian Vaccination Receipt or Digital Vaccine Verification issued by states outside of NYS.

2.  The game starts at 8:15pm.  Gates will open at 6:15pm.  That is 30 minutes earlier than normal to help people get in in a more timely manner.

3.  They are warning that if you show up later than 90-120 minutes prior to kickoff, it is possible that you could miss the opening kickoff and even part of the game.

4.  When they are 1 hour before kickoff they will signal people with fireworks and the train horn so that people know.

5.  Parking lots (that are owned by the Bills) will open at 4:15pm.

6.  No cash will be accepted at the stadium.  If you are coming to the game, skip the ATM.  Only valid debit or credit cards, or mobile wallets including Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay will be accepted at any parking, retail, or concession locations within Highmark Stadium.

7.  The Bills will take part in "Cleats For A Cause" tonight.  They will be wearing cleats that reflect a cause that is near and dear to them.  Josh Allen will be wearing some that are signed by a girl in Oishei Children's Hospital. 

8.  The weather looks miserable.  There will be wind and rain, but it looks like snow will not be a big factor.

9. Fans are being encouraged to bring white towels to swing in support of injured player Tre'Davious White after his season was ended on Thanksgiving.

10.  Former players Aaron Williams and Terrell Owens are expected to be in town for the game.
