NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is expected Friday to announce plans for the Buffalo Bills to play an annual regular-season game in Toronto, starting this year.
The announcement is expected during Goodell's state of the league address during the Super Bowl festivities in Glendale, Arizona. It would make the Bills the NFL's first team to play annual regular-season games outside the United States.
The Bills proposed the plan at the NFL owners meetings in October as part of their desire to expand their market to Toronto. Under the team's proposal, the Bills would play some preseason games and one annual regular-season game at the downtown Rogers Centre through 2012.
