Keeping our Buffalo Bills theme going today, here’s today’s “Quick Facts with The U.”
1) The last playoff appearance for the Bills was on Jan 23, 1999 versus the Tennessee Titans; better known as the “Music City Miracle Game.” The 14-year drought is currently the longest active playoff drought in the NFL.
2) Since their last playoff appearance, Buffalo has gone 88-136. They’ve also only managed to have three winning seasons in that span.
3) From 1988-93, the Bills won the AFC East five times in six years. Since then, Buffalo has only won the AFC East once, 1995, and have finished last in the division the past six seasons.
4) Since Jim Kelly’s last appearance with the Bills in 1996, Buffalo have started (13) different quarterbacks. None of which have thrown for more than 24 touchdowns in a season.
5) Buffalo Bills founder, Ralph Wilson, who passed away this past March at the age of 95, originally wanted the Bills to play in Miami. Unfortunately for Wilson, he was unable to reach an agreement to use the Orange Bowl and settled on creating the team in Buffalo.
