The original series began in 2008 and ran through until the 2012 NFL season. The deal that was struck included one regular season game in Canada per season, with a sprinkling of pre-season games over the years.
January 29th, 2013, acted as the day that was supposed to signify new life in the Toronto Series, but an additional five-year deal hasn't lasted, with the 2013 version of the game becoming the final straw.
It's understood that poor crowds are one of the major reasons for the change, with only 38,969 fans turning out for Atlanta's 34-31 win in over-time last season.
Although no official reason has been given it seems the Bills want to reassess their goals with regard to the series in Canada.
Even though they had a deal with Rogers Media in place until the end of the 2017 NFL season, the Bills issued a statement Wednesday regarding their withdrawal.
"The Buffalo Bills and Rogers are committed to delivering a first-class NFL experience to Canadians," the Bills said in a statement Wednesday.
"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 and build on the foundation to enhance future games."
