Pop quiz hot shot - you are an NFL starter, your team bus pulls out of the hotel and you aren't on it, what do you do?

For two members of the Buffalo Bills, they called an Uber. Player Jerry Hughes posted this -

He and linebacker Zach Brown were supposedly on their way to M&T Bank Stadium for the season opener against the Baltimore Ravens.

A Bills official said the two players could have waited for a second team bus leaving from the hotel but decided to Uber instead. Endorsement deal in 3, 2, 1.

And a note to Uber drivers - you never know who is in your backseat!
