Has it really been nearly a quarter century since the Buffalo Bills were the best team in the AFC yet the laughingstock of the NFL? The only team to reach four straight Super Bowls, the Bills are also the only team in the history of the big game to lose four Super Bowls in a row, and it’s that latter accomplishment they are most remembered for. Factor in Scott Norwood’s wide-right field goal attempt on the last play of Super Bowl XXV and the inabiltiy of Thurman Thomas to find his helmet at the start of Super Bowl XXVI.
Not to mention the fact that the Bills lost their final three Super Bowl games by a combined 65 points and it’s no wonder people don’t give the franchise much credit for their quartet of Super Bowl appearances.
As if losing four successive Super Bowls wasn’t enough negativity to be remembered for, the Bills were also victimized on the most freakish play in NFL playoff history since Franco Harris and his 1972 the Immaculate Reception.
During the 1999 NFL playoffs, the Bills were overcome by the Music City Miracle. Leading the Jan. 8, 2000 AFC Wildcard game 16-15 with 16 seconds to play, the Bills kicked off to the Tennessee Titans. Tennessee’s Frank Wycheck fired a cross-field lateral to Kevin Dyson, who rambled 75 yards for the winning touchdown in a 22-16 victory.
They haven’t been back there since, only adding to the disastrous narrative.

Buffalo Bills Game Schedule
THis is where you will find the Buffalo Bills game schedule, and here’s a quirk of Buffalo’s sked. The Bills play all of their home games at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y.
Even though they are one of three NFL teams based in New York state, the Bills are the only team among the three to play their home games in the state of New York. Both the New York Giants and Buffalo’s AFC East rivals the New York Jets play their home games at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
A freak snowstorm in Buffalo in 2014 forced the Bills out of their home and they played one of their home games that season, a date with the Jets, on a Tuesday night at Detroit’s Ford Field. The Bills won 38-3, their second win of the season in Detroit. They’d downed the Lions 17-14 there earlier in the year, making them the only team to win a home game and a road game in Detroit that season.

How To Make Money Betting On Buffalo Bills
The recent history of the Buffalo Bills is grim. The Bills haven’t won a playoff game since 1995. A 9-7 mark in 2014 was only the second winning season posted by the Bills in the past 16.
Buffalo hasn’t hit double digits in wins in a season since an 11-5 finish earned them a wildcard playoff spot in 1999, and that’s the longest drought of any NFL team. The Bills are possessors of the longest playoff drought of any team in a major professional sport. They haven’t made the playoffs since 1999 and are the only NFL team yet to make a playoff appearance in the 21st century.
They are, however, improving and should be considered as the second or third best team in the division. They are battling the Miami Dolphins for that honor. Avoid the Bills as futures picks until their historic trend changes substantially.
