Best Answer

Buffalo Bill was one of the last characters of the Old West. His real name is William F. Cody. He was called Buffalo Bill because, amongst his many occupations, he was a buffalo hunter. As a play on the same name, the NFL franchise, which is located in Buffalo, NY, adapted Buffalo Bills as the name of the team and the buffalo as the team's mascot and logo.
