For the first time in six years, the Buffalo Bills will not be playing a regular season NFL game in Toronto.

The team confirmed Wednesday morning that it will play all 8 home games at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, NY.

It's unclear what this means for the future of the series.

In a statement Russ Brandon, President & CEO of the Buffalo Bills, and Keith Pelley, President of Rogers Media said:

 “The Buffalo Bills and Rogers are committed to delivering a first-class NFL experience to Canadians.  As such, we have postponed for one year the scheduled 2014 regular season game at Rogers Centre in Toronto, and that game will return to Ralph Wilson Stadium.  We will use this time to collectively evaluate opportunities to enhance future games."

In January Brandon, during a local radio show, expressed concern over whether his team loses a competitive edge by playing annual home games in Toronto.

"I'm going to look at everything. I'll just leave it at that," Brandon said, before being asked a second time whether the Bills can opt out. "My focus in this organization is simple, to put ourselves in the position to win championships and sustain success. Period. Nothing comes above that."
