The 1947 AAFC season was the second season of the All-America Football Conference. After the end of the previous season, the Miami Seahawks had accrued $350,000 dollars in debt, prompting owner Harvey Hester to declare bankruptcy and the AAFC to shut down the team. They were replaced in the Eastern division by the Baltimore Colts. The Buffalo Bisons chose to rename their franchise, holding a contest to determine the new name. The winner requested the new name to be the Buffalo Bills, named after "Buffalo Bill" Cody.
