A great deal of attention has been paid to the Buffalo Bills new uniforms this off-season, with fans anxiously awaiting the team's new look as they upgrade (hopefully) from the Tom Donahoe-era uniforms. Those jerseys are not, however, the only part of the team getting a facelift this off-season.

The Buffalo News has profiled a company called A-Turf, based on Cheektowaga, that will be installing a new playing surface at Ralph Wilson Stadium for the 2011 regular season. The new surface, called Titan, will replace the AstroPlay surface that the Bills have played on since 2003, and which was considered one of the league's worst playing surfaces in 2010.

Per the report, the new Titan surface was designed to not only be durable and playable, but prevent injury. Many fans have attributed the Bills' injury woes over the years to a substandard playing surface. I imagine most of you will want to check out the article, however, to scope out the blueprint pictured that has blue end zones at The Ralph.
