Buffalo Bills’ Greatest Comeback Record Is No More
The Buffalo Bills are preparing to play the Miami Dolphins at Highmark Stadium tonight, for what should be an epic snow game in Orchard Park. The game is important for both teams in the AFC playoff picture, as the Bills have number one seed hopes, while the Dolphins try and stay in a playoff spot and pull within a game of the AFC East lead.
This rivarly being relevant again harkens back to the days of the early '90s, when the Bills faced Miami in those Super Bowl trip seasons. The most famous game in those Super Bowl years was when Buffalo overcame a 32-point comeback over the Houston Oilers in the Wild Card round at Ralph Wilson Stadium back in January of 1993.
The Bills held the record for the greatest comeback in NFL history for nearly 30 years. That record has officially fallen.
The Minnesota Vikings overcame a 33-0 deficit to beat the Indianapolis Colts, 39-36 in overtime. The 33-point comeback is now the largest comeback in NFL history.
The game features wacky plays, amazingly talented plays, and questionable officiating in what was arguably the best NFL game of the 2022 regular season, maybe since the Bills lost to the Vikings back in early November.
Some Bills fans may be sad to see the record go, but all records were made to be broken. The Vikings accomplishment should be celebrated by all. The Colts, however, now have to live with this until this new comeback record is broken...
