As part of the NFL’s “Greatest Moments in NFL History” campaign, the Bills recently called upon their faithful followers to identify the team’s top moment.
Presented with four iconic games to choose from – the 1965 AFL Championship, 1990 AFC Championship, 1993 “Comeback Game” and the 2017 season finale that helped propel the Bills to playoffs, Bills fans answered the call and the verdict is in.
For many longtime supporters, it will come as no surprise that “The Comeback Game” received 54% of the votes, making it the winning choice.
A legendary AFC Wild Card matchup between the Bills and Houston Oilers, the contest resulted in the greatest comeback in NFL history. Orchestrated by backup signal caller Frank Reich, the Bills overcame a 32-point deficit to stun the Oilers 41-38 in overtime at home.
While kicker Steve Christie made the 32-yard game-winning field goal, the incredible feat was the result of a true team effort. Banding together, the Bills found a way to keep their postseason alive, cementing their place in the record books in the process.
The Bills will celebrate six decades of outstanding athletes, dedicated coaches and passionate fans, during the team’s upcoming “Fantennial Weekend” and all season long. For more information on how to participate in the fun, click here.
Later this season, “The Comeback Game,” and the selections from each of the other 31 teams, will be placed in a bracket to determine the all-time greatest moment in the NFL’s 100-year history.
