Bills to celebrate 25th anniversary of the Comeback Game on Kickoff Weekend


Great comebacks will be celebrated this weekend at New Era Field and throughout the NFL community.

The Bills along with the rest of the NFL community will support the city of Houston as the city continues to rebuild from Hurricane Harvey. Bills fans can text HARVEY to 90999 to donate $10 to the American Red Cross relief fund.

Also charitable proceeds from the Buffalo Bills Foundation 50/50 Raffle will benefit the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

The Bills will honor the participants from the legendary Comeback Game in Buffalo's Kickoff Weekend game against the New York Jets.  On January 3, 1993, the Bills overcame a 32-point deficit to defeat the Houston Oilers in an AFC Wild Card game in Orchard Park. The Bills victory remains the biggest comeback in NFL history.

Andre Reed, who scored three touchdowns in the game, and approximately 25 of his teammates from the 1992 Buffalo Bills team will be honored in a halftime ceremony of the home opener.  Steve Christie, who kicked the game-winning field goal, along with Don Beebe, Thurman Thomas, Jim Kelly and Darryl Talley are also scheduled to attend the event.

The Comeback Game celebration is part of the Bills Alumni Weekend which includes a VIP Gala on Saturday, September 9, a VIP Tailgate Party on Sunday, September 10 and the Celebrity Charity Golf Classic on Monday, September 11.  For more information on Alumni Weekend visit
