A fun look back at a game winning drive from the 2014 season

Recommended Posts

I'm sure most of us here remember this game well. I haven't seen it in years and I forgot how fun this was. I think the bills drove 150 yards to score between penalties and sacks. Lots of amazing things happened on this drive. Enjoy/discuss

Was at the game. I remember turning to my friend when they got to the 1 yard line and said "They better throw the ball to Watkins here."

Kyle Orton didn't hurdle any defenders in this game did he?

Ya he was average at best, but this was a pretty fun game. Gotta give it to the guy for converting a 4th and 20

I have been a Bills fan since 2005. That 2014 season was a dream for me lol best I had seen by a long shot

Kind of sad to see Sammy running around the field making big catches.  What could have been.

You mean if they didn’t trade him?.... according to him he was getting wasted every night this exact season.😅

The problem was he was on Chippewah St way too much and smoking weed all the time. The Bill should have had a system in place to guide and direct, and WATCH these kids when they first come in to the league! What do you expect from a kid who's just been given millions of dollars? I don't know how I would have handled that kind of money at that age in my life. If the Bills did have a system in place to do this, they did a bad job.

Fun to rewatch, but ugh...Orton and EJ Manuel. My God, what a wasteland we were stuck in.

We all knew that Orton wasn't here for the long term, he made things entertaining.

 

I'd rather forget the Marrone era.

He's never been worth what the bills paid to get him. Yes, he had a good run in the playoffs and superbowl last year, but giving up 2 first round picks for a guy who's been on 3 teams and only played very average up until the playoffs of last season is pretty pathetic

Kyle Orton was no Pro Bowler but was actually one of the better QBs we had during the drought era. Top 5 for sure...which aint saying much I know...

How bout Lawrence Taylor and all his issues? Didn’t seem to matter on game day....

Thanks for posting this. I remember that I was in my vehicle, and I pulled over to get an update of this game on my phone, so I was sitting in some lot on the final drive, and on the last play with 5 seconds, I was hoping they would just do a quick out pattern to Watkins.....of course most people were probably thinking something similar as well, and sure enough!
