The Buffalo Bills 1990 Playoff Run
The Buffalo Bills of the early 1990s were a dominant team in the NFL. Going to three consecutive Super Bowls, even though they lost each one, is truly an impressive feat. Let’s look at their playoff run that year.
The Bills opened up the playoffs with a division round game against the rival Miami Dolphins. The Bills had lost to the Dolphins early in the season by a score of 30-7 and then gotten even in the revenge game later in the year by winning by a score of 24-14. The playoff game was all it was billed to be with the Bills winning by a score of 44-34. This brought them into the Conference Championship Game against the Los Angeles Raiders. The Raiders never seemed to make it out of the locker room, as the Bills juggernaut ran up the score to a 51-3 total in an embarrassing AFC Championship Game. Now, was the Super Bowl against the in-state rival New York Giants. The Bills had scored 95 points in their first two playoff games and most thought there was no way that the Giants could keep up that kind of scoring pace. They didn’t have to, as the Bills were held below 20 points for only the fifth time in 19 games and lost to the Giants by a score of 20-19. Truly an amazing high scoring team with a shocking end to the season.
