What was the Bill's Play-of-the-Decade?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

NFL released a pretty awesome video montage showing every team's play-of-the-decade.  This question should probably be a poll, but there's no way I can do that justice, so I'll just ask it here...for this video they picked Shady's TD run to win the Snow Bowl game in OT.  While there's probably a FitzMagic moment I'm missing, I'll put forth 2 candidates:

-- Josh Allen's 75 yard bomb to Foster against the Jags last year.  This came after he returned from the injury, he was under heavy pressure and stood in the pocket.  In my mind this is one of the key plays where the team really started to believe in him

-- Allen QB sneak fumble/recovery on 4th down against Dallas on Thanksgiving.  Big national spotlight, big moment in the game.  I think this is where the rest of the league started to notice him

 

Submit your entries and even better if you include a video clip of the play....

I'm surprised they didn't show one of our many spectacular FG's from over the years.

I liked this one Fitz to TO I think its a franchise record

 

 

A close second was Fitz to Stevie in the comeback win over the Pats

So many to choose from.

 

Some of my favorites: 

 

-Fred Jackson’s run with the stiff arm (twice) of the Bears’ Chris Conte, sending him to the turf, that set up the game winning FG

- Dawson Knox’s run after catch where he refused to go down

- Josh Allen’s hurdle over the Vikings LB Barr

- Kyle Williams rushing TD in his last game

Orton to Watkins to win the Minnesota game in 2014.  It's been a sad decade for the most part up to this year.  Even the playoff birth in 2017 felt more like a pity prize.

Daltons pass to get us in the playoffs. 

 

-Honestly the botched snap  against Dallas that JA willed into a first down stands out to me but that's probably because it's so recent

Play of the decade was Dalton on 4th & 12. Nothing else compares.

As strange as it is, this is the one that all of us will remember as we sit under a weeping willow at Shady Acres and not one Bill was on the field.

It is fairly crazy how few guys are still in the Bills locker room in just a span of two years.

Allen’s last second heave to Clay for the win, oops.


showed us there is a QB in town and it wasn’t time just yet...

 

edit: I didn’t remotely see it coming and might have soiled myself if it connected...

I would say that Dalton's TD to Boyd was definitely our play of the decade, and out game of the decade, not that anybody asked, is definitely that NE comeback in 2011 that someone posted a link to earlier.

 

Here's to being the winningest team of the 20's!! We have a chance to get the first NFL win of the 20's on Saturday!

Someone pointed that out about the Texans: none of the players who caught a pass for the Bills last year are on the Bills roster (Rayray is on practice squad)

For the period 1600 – 1609, I would have to say Macbeth.

I agree with both of these.  If it's a play, it's obviously the 4th and 12.  If it's a Bills play, then I'm with you on the Allen sneak.  It's the symbolism of what Allen did; it was the play of that game, and that was the game where we seem to have shucked off the mediocrity of most of the past two decades.

In order:

 

out of league

200 yard NFL receiver for Raiders

NFL player, best years way behind him

out of league

230 yard TE on a bad team

out of league

practice squad player

190 yard TE on a bad team

We had a very bad WR corps last year

That video was great and honestly pretty accurate.  
 

I agree with the snow play for us because it was possibly the most significant play for us this past decade.  Winning that game got us into the playoffs.  
 

The long pass to Freddie against the Pats was probably the most exciting, but in a losing season.  
 

The Allen to Foster pass was the best pure pass over the TO bomb.

Next year will have another flip at WR. I suspect Brown, Beasley, and maybe McKenzie (maybe) are the only holdovers. You can say Andre Roberts is technically a WR but I think he is only a specialist next year barring injuries.

Ideally, your specialist is also a guy you can trust to run your routes in case of injury

 

I've been looking at the (bottom of the) roster.  It seems Heath Farwell has a pretty good thumb on a lot of it for an under-performing unit

I actually like the idea of having a Brad Smith/Joe Webb/Taysom Hill type that can play WR, ST, KR, and be an emergency QB. I would always want one of those dudes on my roster. He'd also be my holder on place kicks to keep the threat of a fake alive on all attempts.
