How To Win At Buffalo Bills Betting
Even someone with a passing knowledge of NFL history knows that the Bills are the only team to lose four straight Super Bowls.
But not as many people are aware of how close the Bills came to playing in the first Super Bowl. With future U.S. vice-presidential candidate Jack Kemp at quarterback, Buffalo won the AFL championship in 1964 and 1965 and captured the AFL East title in 1966 with a 9-4-1 record, earning the right to face the West Division champion for the AFL title and the chance to face the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl I.
Even though the game was at Buffalo's War Memorial Stadium and the Bills were two-time defending champions, oddsmakers set the Chiefs as three-point favorites, and knew what they were doing. Tied 7-7 after one quarter, the Chiefs opened a 17-7 halftime advantage and added a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns for a 31-17 victory.
Bill Clinton was still in the White House. The Y2K virus left the planet feeling a sense of impending peril. And the Buffalo Bills qualified for the NFL playoffs. Most people know 1999 as a hit song by Prince. In Buffalo, they recall it fondly as the end of the glory days. Between 1988-99, the Bills made the playoffs 10 times in 12 seasons, playing 20 postseason games while winning four AFC Championship Games and appearing in four Super Bowls.
The run came to a shocking halt in the opening round of the playoffs following the 1999 NFL regular season, a game the Bills stunningly lost to the Tennessee Titans on a lateral play on the kickoff following a Steve Christie field goal that put the Bills ahead 16-15 with 16 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
Christie kicked off, Lorenzo Neal picked up the ball and handed it to Frank Wycheck, who ran all the way to the right side of the field before turning and firing a cross-field lateral to Kevin Dyson, who scampered 75 yards for the winning score as the Titans downed the Bills 22-16 in what's become known as the Music City Miracle.
That was the last game in the careers of Bills legends Thurman Thomas, Andre Reed and Bruce Smith and it's also the last time the Bills played a playoff game, the longest drought in any North American major league sport. Buffalo hasn't won in the playoffs since 1995, beating the Miami Dolphins 37-22 in a wldcard game.
