Unusual as it may sound, the act of throwing a sex toy onto a game field to celebrate a win is not new thing for football fans. A fan did this again on Saturday, January 15, in the third quarter of Bills' 47-17 rout of their rival Patriots in the AFC wild-card round, reviving a 'tradition' of sorts. Exactly five seasons ago, a fan tossed a sex toy on the game field to celebrate a win for the first time and somebody wanted to revive this celebratory act.

Seconds after Patriots wideout Kendrick Bourne caught a third-quarter touchdown from Mac Jones, a dildo came flying right across the field. CBS camera caught the object landing on the other corner of the field after it flew past Bourne. To most people, this seemed a direct replication of the 2016 incident where a fan had done the same thing. The stadium PA issued a reminder that objects are not to be thrown on the field by the audience.

The NY Post referred to the incident as "catharsis" for Bills fans after the "torture that was suffered at the hands of England for so many years". Fans seemed to enjoy the moment and did not react beyond laughing about the 'sex toy' moment. Camera surveillance at the stadium were unable to zero in on the person who threw the toy. Fortunately, no player or member of the audience was hit or injured by the flying object. Once the moment went viral on social media, a majority of netizens felt it was an enthusiastic albeit unusual way of celebrating a win. In game news, Buffalo Bills won comfortably with a 47-17 score and blew out the New England Patriots out of the competition on their way to the divisional round. It was the first playoff game between the Patriots and Bills since the 1963 AFL Eastern Division Round.
