Starting this Friday, Aug. 21, the Bills will give you an opportunity to relive the moments that shaped franchise history. Turning back the clock, Buffalo will broadcast four legendary games, including the team's thrilling 2002 overtime win against the Vikings. Presented by Connors and Ferris, the matchup will air at 8 p.m. ET on WIVB Channel 4 in Buffalo and WROC Channel 8 in Rochester. Here's everything you need to know about the exciting replay:
It's Sept. 15, 2002, and the Bills, led by quarterback Drew Bledsoe, are neck and neck with the Vikings in enemy territory. In what quickly became a shootout for the ages, Bledsoe threw for a remarkable 463 yards and three touchdowns. A hard-fought battle on both sides, the Bills emerged victorious when Bledsoe connected with wide receiver Peerless Price on a 48-yard TD strike in overtime. During the 45-39 win, Price tallied an impressive 13 receptions for 183 yards and two touchdowns. Buffalo's defense was also stout in the outing, sacking Vikings QB Dante Culpepper five times and forcing three fumbles.
The epic showdown helped solidify Bledsoe's place in the record books, becoming the third quickest signal caller in NFL history to amass 30,000 career passing yards. Additionally, he set a Bills single game passing record – one that still stands today.
