Bills Mafia has done it again. Over and over, fans of the Buffalo Bills continue to prove why they are the best fans in the NFL, and potentially all of American sports.

With a massive snowstorm hammering Buffalo this week, the NFL moved the Bills' Week 11 game against the Cleveland Browns to Detroit. That became an issue when the Buffalo airport closed on Friday due to the storm, potentially stranding players.

Thankfully, the airport re-opened on Saturday, and Bills fans were quick to help their favorite players catch their flight.

Fullback Reggie Gilliam tweeted out a picture of some of his friendly neighbors shoveling and snow-blowing his driveway.

Not surprisingly, Gilliam wasn't the only player who received this "like a good neighbor, State Farm is there" treatment. The team tweeted out a video of this happening all over town as players scrambled to get to the airport in time.

Buffalo really is a tight-knit community, and when it comes to the Bills, there is seemingly nothing that will stop the people of Buffalo from doing whatever they can to help the team.

Buffalo heads to Detroit for an unusual "home" game in Week 11, where they are currently 7.5-point favorites against Cleveland according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
