Your All-Time Fav/Memorable Bills Plays

Recommended Posts

Andy Dalton to Tyler Boyd.

 

Seriously the JK sneak is the first thing I though of.  A couple others:

 

1.  Thurman Thomas TD in SB 25 in the 4th quarter.  

2.  Bruce Smith almost forced fumble in the end zone in SB25.

Kelly fumbles the snap on the first drive against the Raiders in the championship game. He picks it up, turns, runs to his right and (in the words of the great Dick Enberg) "throws to Lofton for a touchdown!"

 

Some others that jump straight to mind:

 

Sam Adams lumbering into the endzone during the 31-0 win on opening day Vs the Pats

Any play involving a Fred Jackson stiff arm

Bruce stopping OJ Anderson on 4th and short in the Super Bowl

The Terrence McGee return that didn't quite make the endzone

Josh's hurdle

Josh's flick of the wrist throw down the field against the Jags

Andre's 3TDs in the comeback

 

So many

OJs first quarter 80 yard touchdown run in the ‘73 opener at New England. (You just knew something big was about to happen.)

OJ’s 94 yard scamper vs. the Steelers in ‘72. Served notice of what was to come.

At first I thought there's no way I can pick one play.  Then I thought about what was the most amazing game the Bills ever played and I kept coming back to the playoff comeback win against Houston. 

 

So I figured it had to be a play from that game and while I thought the Beebe TD catch was big I'll go with the successful onside kick executed right after that TD.  That led to the Bills cutting the Houston's lead from 35 - 3 to 35 - 17 and suddenly the corpse stirred.

Some immediate one's that come to mind that haven't been mentioned.

-Flutie's naked bootleg for game winning TD against Jaguars.

-Carlton Bailey's pick 6 against the Broncos in AFC Championship game.

-Sam Adams rumbling into end zone on Brady fumble opening day 2003.

-Bruce Smith strip sack of Randell Cunningham

The flutie vs jax game is when i believed in him. He had to make a great throw to Eric Moulds to set up that play- moulds was not yet even competent- and the bootleg was a busted play. Flutie had an ability to improvise that few could.

I am not sure of which exact game this is but it is absurd that he could make a pro lineman look that bad.

When OJ planted his foot and turned the run up field, it was like he was shot out of a gun.  He just accelerated away from everyone.  Great memory!

Anytime Nathan Peterman touched the ball.... 😛

 

 

As someone who became a fan in ‘03, my memories have less to do with winning. But some that stand out:

 

Ryan Lindell (or Morman) fake fd pass td to Ryan Denny. 

 

Chris Kelsey pick six vs Romo on MNF. 

 

Fred Jackson violating Chris Conte (who someone stayed around long enough to let it happen again. Dude. Retire) 

 

Sam Adams pick six. 

 

Drayton Florence Pick six of Brady in our first win of the pats since the first game I ever watched. 

 

TT to Percy Hardin in week 1 vs the colts (ah the excitement...)

 

Josh Allen throwing the ball so hard that Tom Brady’s genitals fall off (this one happens this coming season)

As a big fan of the early 80s Bills my most memorable play is the Fergy to Roland Hooks Hail Mary versus Patriots in 1981.  Two passes from our 20 to win with time running out!  Great to hear Van Miller on the radio call too - sorry unable to embed video.  Worth the watch!!

The first catch (also by Roland Hooks) was one of the best of all time. Couldn't find it anywhere on line though. Yes I was at the game and did not leave early.

Surprised Flutie's Naked Bootleg  took so long to get a mention in this thread.

You also referenced the Sam Adams play which is definitely one for the ages

Fred Smerlas’ blocked kick. Wasn't really the greatest thing ever but I'll never forget it. I can still picture everything about it and where I was. It's kinda creepy how much I remember about that day. 

 

Agreed.  Why this is memorable for me, is it secured a playoff spot for the Bills in a long, long time.

 

The Rochester D& C ran a headline - Smerlas Blocks Out The past.

Yep. You just can’t coach world class speed. And OJ had it.

Don Beebe chasing down showboating Leon Lett and stripping the ball, preventing a touchdown in a blowout Super Bowl loss, was not only the greatest play in Bills history, but also the quintessential metaphor for the history of the franchise:

It was a nice effort by Beebe, hardly the greatest play in team history.

Many Great ones already mentioned. I always think of this amazing, and ultimately heartbreaking, return by Terrence McGee. For those that don't remember, this happened at the end of the half and time ran out as the return unfolded. It is probably the greatest return in NFL history to result in no points scored.

The only important play in the only AFC playoff game that was remotely a contest those 4 years, where for a minute I thought the Bills would lose. (The Comeback Game was never in doubt to me.)

 

Elway's pass is tipped by Jeff Wright and the pick 6 went to Carlton Bailey to help clinch the 10-7 win in the 1991 AFC Championship Game.

 

 

 

thanks to Doc for adding this, but it is truly #1

 

3 senior citizens watching with me jumped up out of their couch/easy chair and screamed with delight at this play, the only time they showed any sign of life in watching a game with them for decades, it was that vital at the time.

1974 MNF vs. Raiders. Bills lose lead on Jim Braxton fumble with only 1:15 left, but Joe Ferguson caps last-minute comeback drive with TD pass to Ahmad Rashad with only 26 seconds left.  What a game ...

Robert James -- The most underrated player in franchise history whose career was tragically cut short by a terrible knee injury.

 

Greatest moment in franchise should be obvious. The 1965 AFL Championship game. Bills 23, Chargers 0

When Scott Norwood kicked the Superbowl winning 47 yard field goal in Superbowl 25!!! At least, that happened in every other dimension of the multiverse that I have visited...
