What Is The Worst Bills Game You've Attended

The Saints game last year was pretty bad, and my buddy locked my keys in my car, so I left the stadium a little early to call AAA and missed the streaker.

 

 

I stayed the whole freaking game, but was in the head for the streaker ! Only good thing in the game and I missed it!

43 minutes ago, I am the egg man said:

Some of the worst games I went to were when Hank Bullough was head coach.

 

They were also some of the most fun ones. By the 4th quarter no one was there, we'd be 1st row behind the visitors bench harassing the opponents. 

 

With no security, we'd be within feet of the players who'd come right up to the wall......ah, the good old days.

I loved a lot of those games too... damn we had fun at those games. 

 

BTW, absolute worst feeling I had at game I attended was first Cowboys Super Bowl in Pasadena. I was sure the Bills were gunna win.. then we get there and the place is just a dump( I know beautiful scenery etc, place is a dump) pain in da balls to get a beer and have a smoke.  And the Bills get absolutely destroyed. By far the worst feeling I have ever had after a game

It’s well known I’ve been around ‘a while..’, so I’ve witnessed some serious Stinkers. But off the top of my head, the ‘Death of EJ Game’ @ Houston 4 years back. Because of our Defense, we were in this game the whole way needing only ONE positive play from Manuel to bring home a W. 

 

Silver Lining: He never saw the field again 

 

did you miss the Jacksonville game in London?

Oh! Crap. Yeah, slipped my mind. Fairly certain he didn’t play again the year Orton took over after Houston.

Aside from 12 minutes of the 1st Half, he did bring the Bills back in Londontown..

Bills-Jagoffs 1996.  Jim Kelly's final game as a Bill.  I had goal line seats and watched Jimmy Smith walk in on that quick out right in front of me.  Watched the Bills get to midfield before Kelly was carted off after getting concussed, game over.  I was physically ill walking out of that stadium.

This and a 1983 stinker at home against the Patriots

Also, the opener in 2004 vs. Jax, where the Bills lost on the last play of the game, where only moments before, Jax had a fourth and a mile and the Bills "prevent defense" gave up a huge gainer.

Those 12 mins were Petermanesque, however.

52-28 loss to Pats in 2012.  We actually had a 2TD lead in that game and we were at the 1 yard line with a chance to make it a 3TD lead when Spiller lost a fumble.  All NE after that.

 

I believe that was the game where a fan held up the “Tom Brady sits while he pees” banner and where Tom was caught saying F*** you b****es after he was given a TD on 4th down even though he came up short of the end zone.

I almost give EJ a pass on that game due to the late "pass interference" call.  It's part of the NFL's strategy to sell Jags as Lodon's team.  They already have a full time marketing office there. They play there every year.

 

Nothing sells easier than winning. Those Brits don't know the rules so they won't know the difference anhway

Ya know, that spiller TD would have put the Bills up 14, and I was all like “ typical Bills”. All the Pats I go with were just smirking that Pats smirk. But the Bills get the ball to start  2nd half, March down the field get a TD from Donald Jones.  And man was I in their face.  I was all” see, new Bills team! Mentally tough!

 

then they give up TDS on 6 straight possessions! Man, was that ever a long post game tailgate with my butthole Pats friends.

this was the worst, most demoralizing

 

November 4th, 1984

The 1-8 Browns at the 0-9 Bills

 

Bills had a 4th quarter lead 10-6, caused a Cleveland fumble on a completion at the 50, so there was hope, then Earnest Byner scooped the ball up and ran for the winning TD.

 

Didn't even cover the 2.5 point spread

 

 

 

 

don't forget is was about 50 degrees and a heavy downpour all game. That game defined the Kay Stephenson era. The 1984 team may have been our worst of all time.  A couple weeks earlier in front of a wonderful crowd of 31000, Denver crushes us 37-7, I actually left in the 3rd qtr, me and my brother suffering from brutal hangovers couldn't bear to sit through anymore. Probably the 2 worst games I ever attended. excluding super bowl 26 and 27.

Super Bowls XXVI and XXVII really sucked to be at. I was ready to leave at halftime of both games but had nothing else to do.

December 1997 game - bills/jags. Our offense was terrible and our fans were a special kind of bad that day. Remember some yelling at a child wearing a jags jersey. Only thing I remember is a fan holding up a sign that said “bring flutie in”. That dude was a prophet

I'm not sure who was the home team in the January 1993 Super Bowl, but I was there and it doesn't get much worse than that. NINE freaking turnovers (which is hard to even if you try!), and Dallas should have had 59 if not for Don Beebe.

No dog hair at the Ralph that day?

 

I had quite a few the night before, blacked out, messed up my hand in a fight, and was puking into the woods/porter for a good couple hours that morning... classy i know.

Last season... Bills at Jets Thursday night game.  Bills were riding a wave, had already beaten the Jets earlier in the season, they were 5-2, looking to be 6-2 at the halfway point and in first place.  Laid an egg, to start a 3 game losing streak where they were badly outplayed in all three (Jets, Saints, Chargers).  After a good opening drive, they were beaten pillar to post the rest of the game... now I'm depressed!

 

That may be the all time worse for me watching wise. I went into that day soo freaking excited to the point had Bills sock and matching blue and red tie for work plus brought my mini Bills helmet. Got to our local bar we go to for night games which was pretty packed everyone was excited they had a special on Bills shots. It would've been the first time in my adult life I remember the Bills being 6-2 and genuinely feeling like the playoffs weren't a lie.

 

AND.... then the game started. I ended up Gronk spiking my Iphone in anger after Tyrod's fumble in the 3rd and we left after because I knew it was time for me to go home. I think I had a three day depression after because it just reconfirmed like 17 years of doubt and fear in literally 3 hours. I really give McD and the team credit for coming back after the 3 game skid because it was impossible to not view it as another tease.

That is the worst game I've ever seen (didn't attend).

 

Mine was also a Browns-Bills game. It was the Trent Edwards 3-pick 1st quarter MNF game. 

To come back after all that, and let Brady Quinn make a drive, and we missed the field goal at the end........lots of people just sat there after game staring off into the distance. Those were the dark ages.

 

God I remember watching that game in college and you weren't as much angered as just so utterly shelled that they were so hopeless haha

For me has to be Home Run Throwback.  Yup, I wuz there.  Talk about the Thrill of Victory, Agony of Defeat in a few moments, and the hosing the Bills got from the Refs.

Worst game for me was the away game in Arizona where my ticket was literally behind a pillar and I could not see anything at all except for a tv out of side of my eye.  Spent most of game trying to find place to watch game and being shooed away.  Perfect game for those who love domes.

 

After that is was the Browns-Bills game when we were just begging it to end sitting against the wall because no one else was in section and we had 1st row seats on 2nd level.

The 6-3 Browns game has been thoroughly covered in this thread, so I'll go with another awful gameday experience:

Patriots over Bills, 56-10.

The game was flexed to Sunday night so that the national audience could see the undefeated Pats do their thing. Trent Edwards was hurt, so JP Losman got the start. I somehow believed that the Bills had a chance. Instead, Randy Moss caught FOUR first half touchdowns. That's not a misprint. The fun didn't end there. Belichick opted to go for it on 4th down, up 49-7. The Pats converted. Then the Bills faced a 4th down, and Jauron decided kicking the field goal would be best. 

And that's all I have to say about that.

Worst game I attended at the Ralph was Bills steelers in 2016. It was very cold and wet and Leveon Bell ran all over them all game. He had 236 yards rushing and 3 td's. I travelled 7 hours to watch the worst tackling I have ever seen. It was a must win game and the 27-20 score was wayyyyyy closer than the game actually was. Brutal .

Thats the game I picked. We left late 3rd and on our way to the parking lot heard the FG go through. Shout song and all came on and literally you heard nothing from the stadium otherwise. Sooo bad.

Either my first or most recent game.

 

My first was in 1969 against the Bungles. Blizzard was just as bad as last year’s Colts game, really hard to see anything at the Rockpile, but the Bills did win, thank you Harry Jacobs!

 

I was also at that abomination last year against the Chargers, what a downer but it couldn’t have been a more beautiful day, absolutely perfect weather.

I've lived in Los Angeles since '91, so I don't get to attend too many games. But, I was at the Chargers game last year to witness Nate Peterman making history. :bag:

Also a West Coaster, that was my worst game too. 

 

Close second, a game in 95 vs the 49ers. Bills & 49ers both 8-4 going into the game, Bills could have took a lead in the 3rd, but Darick Holmes fumbled at the 1, ball was ran back 99yds by the 49ers for a TD to go up 17-10, instead of vice versa. At that point, all 49er fans wanted to fight. Wonderful experience. It was then I realized 49er fans were no better than Raider fans. Oh yeah, Bills lost 27-17, fumble killed the vibe of the game.

One NE game I went to I watched Trent Edwards mope onto the field in relief of Fitz...only to limp off when nobody touched him. 

 

People acually liked that fragile turd.

The human mind is a wonderful thing that protects us from all types of emotional agony. Would there ever be a second child if a mother couldn’t forget the pain of child birth? That’s how I feel about so many Bills game days.....

Oye, too many to choose from.  Living on the West Coast, I've attended about a dozen games out here and the Bills won only once, the Rams game 2 seasons ago.

 

The Chargers game last year ended up a rout but it was a good atmosphere of Bills fans.  I'd have to say the worst was vs the Niners in December of 2001 at Candlestick Park.  Not only were the Bills never in a 35-0 game, it was cold, windy & rainy to make it extra miserable.
