I was at the Bills @ Rams game in the heat of Olympic Stadium in Los Angeles in '16. Had seats in the third row next to the end zone, which gave me a great view of some great plays, including a sweet interception by Nickell Robey-Coleman. Tyrod was at his best. The Rams fans outnumbered the Bills fans by about ten to one, but we were louder. Afterwards, team members said that it felt like a home game. Bills won 30-19.

 

I was at the Chargers game in '17, too. That was a very different experience.

I was at both those games too. No way it was 10-1 fan ratio for Rams game. Bills fans were probably a third of the fans in the stadium. It was amazing.

I left at half time of the Chargers game and threw my Bills hat in the trash walking out of the stadium.

I’ll play, but I had seasons in ‘09 and had only been to two other games so get ready for some heartbreakers lol:

 

1. The 6-3 game vs the Browns. Impressively awful. Moorman was the MVP. We lost. I was incredibly drunk for this game and jousted with empty beer cans taped together with my friends. That was more entertaining.

 

2. The final game of the ‘07 season when the bills jumped to a nice lead over the giants in Q1. Then it rained incredibly hard... then snowed... and I froze to death watching the giants completely destroy us

 

3. Bills vs Chargers 08. There was an issue with the audio that day I think. Beautiful weather. Back then Trent Edwards looked competent. First game back from getting destroyed by Arizona. We won so that’s a plus too.

 

4. TO’s last game in 09. Crap weather and a shot season, but I was able to just enjoy the game/moment.

 

5. Bills vs Fins 09 - screw the fins. We played like garbage early on and the Henne gave us the ball so many times it was easy to look amazing.

 

 

now, video games:

 

1. Suikoden 2

2. Witcher 3

3. Final Fantasy Tactics

4. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

5. Super Mario world

3. Bills Packers 1994. My friend wanted to see Bryce Paup up close during warm ups and I was like “who cares about this guy?” Only to be proudly wearing a Paup jersey the next season. 

2. Bills Raiders 1990 AFC Championship. Bo didn’t know snow and we had a steady “Schroeder” mocking chant going until the half when we knew the game was out of reach. 

1. Bills Broncos 2017. 1-1 coming into the game and half expecting to get blown out. Seeing more orange in the parking lot than a Florida grove. Had to decide whether or not to boo the anthem kneelers. Hauschka was money. The wife’s first game. Made the 12 hour drive each way worth it.

6-3 game was awesome.  I almost put it on my list.  I still think it has to be sa serious contender for worst NFL game ever. It was so bad, it was a privilege to be there.

1. Bills vs Jets 10/21/90 - My very first game ever attended.  Game winning TD pass from Jim Kelly to Jamie Mueller as time was expiring.  What a first game experience!

2. Bills vs Dolphins 12/23/90 - My second game ever attended.  Frank Reich leads the Bills to the AFC East title with a monster game from Thurman.  The goal posts came down!

3. 1991 AFC Championship game vs Broncos - My first playoff game attended.  It was a defensive slugfest but we came out with the victory.

4. 1993 AFC Divisional playoff game vs Raiders - Coldest game I ever attended.  With the windchill, a nasty -32F

5. 1992 AFC Wild Card game vs Oilers: The Comeback -  Attended this game with my dad.  The most memorable game I ever attended.

1994  hosting the Vikings.  It was the first NFL game for my daughters

2007  Home Opener vs Denver...Kevin Everett.

2012  Home Opener versus Chiefs.

 

Home openers always are enjoyed with the good peeps at TBD at Hammer's lot.

Unfortunately we are 1-6 in games I have attended. All during the drought era. I wouldn't say any of them were good games including the lone win @ Carolina in '09. All were road games except for the '07 season opener against Denver, the Kevin Everett game. That was probably the most entertaining game from start to finish with a 20 yard Beast Mode TD run, Roscoe Parrish punt return TD and the dramatics of Jason Elam running on the field to kick the game winner with no timeouts and the clock ticking down. Really sucked the life out of the stadium. 

 

It's hard to go to road games and expect wins or good football when you are a perennial 6-10/7-9 team every year.

I’m one who ponders things, ask my wife. 

 

I already decided on:

1) Raider Monday night, Ahmad Rashad.

2) Oldest son when he turned 16 vs Jets. We won. That’s just special. 

3) Youngest son vs Jets when HE turned 16. We lost, almost as special. 

 

New additions: 

4) A few years ago in Nashville. Happened to be with the oldest son (admittedly awesome), but it was more than just that. It was a blast in every way possible! One of the greatest days in a loooong time! 

5) The Super Bowl vs Redskins. Yeah, the game sucked, but it’s my only SB and that’s a bucket list item. Now, if only..... let's win the next one!

it seems like nobody has mentioned Frank Reich's first start.  MNF vs. Rams in '89...............The game -it's story lines (OJ out, Kelly out), the way the scoring went in the last few minutes, etc. was pretty much the exact same game as the great Raider MNF opener of '74.

I might have mentioned that....if I had a better memory!  

 

But I got what I got.....  😋

The first game I ever attended was the nightmarish Jags playoff game that marked the end of JK's career. I've been to several games since, but none particularly high leverage.(I guess we haven't had many). Perhaps you and I should watch from home for our next big game.

1.  First AFL championship game

2.  1974 season opener Monday night Raiders game

3.  Beating the Raiders to go to SuperBowl 1.

4.  Season opener 1980, finally squishing the Fish.

5.  Monday night game against KC watching OJ go over 1000 half way through the season

Unbelievable but this is  probably my list too. I was at game 1,5 and 4.  

 

Honorable mention has had to be “the comeback” versus Houston.  Maybe it replaces 2 or 5?

Next game I attend will probably be the Vegas game since I'm only about a four hour drive from the stadium.

My 2 most memorable:

1. The immortal Todd Collins leading the Bills to a big come-from-behind last-minute win against the Colts in 1997, Rich was insane that day.

 

2. Home opener for Purdue against Notre Dame, 1977. Boilers were winning 24-14 in the 3rd when some 2nd-string scrub QB named Joe came into the game & put up 17 points in the 4th on the way to a National Championship.
