Greatest Game in Bills History

Recommended Posts

1. Comeback vs. Houston

2. 51-3 over Oakland

3. Only because I was there, November 87, Bills 27-0 over the phins. Once we finally scored, the sky opened up, the snow started falling and the whole stadium cheered and sang" let it snow, let it snow, let it snow". Miami could not do anything after that.

I’m 54, so just missed out on the AFL championship teams. I’ll offer up two games that deserve consideration, though.

 

The greatest comeback game against the Oilers and the no-punt game against the 49ers.

Those and I believe it was 1983 when Ferguson beat the dolphins in Miami. 38-35 or some such. I was nine. Couldn't believe my eyes.

I feel like that may be the one. It was the Raiders though as Gault had gone to Oakland by 90. Appreciate it.

I remember that play and series.  I believe it was a Sunday night game on TNT.  

 

If you watch the preceding play, Odoms leads Gault out of bounds and he's watching how Gault is holding the ball.  Next play he strips the ball and runs it back for the TD.

The best game I saw live was Bills Bengals at Rich Stadium on Monday night, October 21, 1991.  Lofton has a huge push off for a TD, and Sam Wyche goes absolutely apeshit running into the field to quack at the refs.  Big Bills win and a great game to be at.

 

I'll also throw in the Don Shula retirement game, as the Bills drop a 342 burger rushing all over the Fish D.  Playoff win and another great day to be a Bills fan.

Like others have noted for me the Bills 51 - 3 annihilation of the Raiders in the AFC championship is my favorite game. 

 

Sure the comeback was more memorable from an historical standpoint but I didn't enjoy that game.  For all of the 1st half and half of the 3rd quarter all I did was yell at my TV trashing the Bills.  I thought their effort was pitiful especially falling behind 35 - 3 in the playoffs AT HOME!  Yea, I went nuts as they started their comeback and couldn't believe it when they hit the FG in OT - but that was not a fun game for me - exhausting would be a better description.

 

And I was at Rich Stadium when the Bills ended the Miami streak 17 - 7.  But I was in college then and don't have a clear memory of the game as I was in the early stages of my pre-game drinking career.

 

So yea the 51 - 3 beat down of the Raiders is #1 to me.  Right from the get go we kicked their butt.  By half time I knew we were going to the Super Bowl.  And that feeling, knowing we were headed to the big game, was so warm and comforting,  helped get me through the disappointment 2 weeks later.  Plus as another poster noted that Championship game was the one moment when everyone agreed the Bills were the best team in football.

Marino’s 1st ever start. We won in OT with Fergy having his best career day.

It was a great experience! At halftime in the hallways, everyone was high-5ing and whopping it up! “We’re going to the SUPER BOWL!!!”

I distinctly remember it being a nationally televised night game. Not quite sure why I remember that moment so vividly, but not the details. Appreciate the info.

Correct.  This was exactly one week after the ridiculous comeback (3 TDs in less than a minute) against Denver that began with Biscuit's blocked FG return.

Houston   38

Buffalo      41       F / OT

 

If you were there (and didn't leave early) you'd agree.

The TV didn't lie either.
