NEW ORLEANS - The Bills in Toronto series has indeed been extended for five more years.

As QMI Agency reported exclusively eight months ago, the Buffalo Bills and Rogers Media are expected to announce on Tuesday that the NFL team will continue to play one regular-season home game per year in Toronto for the next five seasons, and one exhibition game only in that span.

That's exactly what QMI Agency reported in May.

The news is expected to be announced Tuesday at a midday news conference in Toronto. New Bills head coach Doug Marrone is expected to attend.

The long delay was caused by the club's slow, complicated negotiations with various levels of government to extend their lease at Ralph Wilson Stadium. That process finally was completed last month when it was announced the club signed a 10-year extension, on the promise of various stadium upgrades.
