The Pittsburgh Steelers are set to do battle with the Buffalo Bills this weekend in the NFL's opening round of the postseason, and it's going to be a cold and windy day at Highmark Stadium in Buffalo for the occasion on Sunday. 

The Bills rowdy fanbase has affectionately been known as "Bills Mafia" for some time now, and the co-founder of the infamous name has a friendly warning for Steelers fans who plan on venturing from home and invading enemy territory on the road. 

"It's going to be crazy, especially with the Bills favored to win," Bills Mafia co-founder Del Reid explained ahead of the game on Sunday.

"So I would just prepare if I'm a Pittsburgh fan, I would prepare myself not to find people jumping through tables left and right and setting themselves on fire and whatever else you've seen, which is not the norm," Reid continued. "We're not talking about a game against the Patriots or the Dolphins or something like that." 

Reid also went on to explain that "Bills Mafia" was born after a rough loss to the Steelers that the Bills suffered in 2010.

"It just took off. It was eventually adopted by players -- I think it was fans, players, the media and then eventually the team," Reid said about the creation of Bills Mafia. 

The Bills and Steelers will kick off from Highmark Stadium starting at 1:00 PM on Sunday afternoon.
