The Comeback (1993 Wild Card game) : Bills 41- Oilers 38

11 posts in this topic

Every year when wild card weekend arrives, I think back to the game I almost turned off.

Bills 41- Oilers 38

I haven't seen a comeback like it since and I guess it still is the largest deficit a team has come back from... in the playoffs at least.

Did anyone turn the game off when it was 35-3? Anyway I would love to have some drama like it today.

I would imagine, if Dallas would've made the playoffs, they would've blown a lead worse than this one.

Another good one was in early 2003. The Giants were whipping the 49ers at Candlestick 38-14 in the 3rd but the Niners came back to go ahead 39-38. Giants had a shot at a field goal at the end and I forget what happened (whether it was a bad snap or what) but they threw the ball downfield to a guy who got tackled by a 49er before the ball arrived but nothing was called.

I'm in the same boat. I thought it was over and decided to leave it on while I was doing something else. Glad I didn't leave the room, that game was one of the most miraculous sports moments I have ever seen. Such an amazing game. Thank you Frank Reich.

That and the 2004 Red Sox vs Yankees series, unbelievable.

I did turn the game off. My brother and I went down to SLC instead. Went in to a sports apparel place that used to be common around here and they had the game on. We checked to see if Moon and the Oilers had put up 70 yet and then our jaws hit the ground when we saw that the Bills had come back. I think we walked in right around their second to last score. :doh:

I was on I-40 going west listening to it on the radio.

One of the few positives I've gained from my many trips to hospital the past few months, is falling in love with listening to sports on the radio again. I'm weird in that I'd rather read a book than watch the movie, and although I like watching football on TV, I also love listening to it be called on the radio (and baseball as well). Takes me back to when I was a kid my dad would always have baseball/football games on the radio as we drove around. This does not include Sonny/Sam/Larry btw. :)

I actually turned the comeback game on when it was a blowout and watched the Bills work their way back. Also remember watching the Music City Miracle game as well. The 49er game was a botched snap that they holder tried to throw downfield to a player who was interfered with. Should have been offsetting penalties with giants getting another chance @ kick. Those kinds of finishes are fun, but only if your team isn't involved, or more specifically, on the bad receiving end.

I was only 5 at the time of that game, so I don't remember a damn thing. I was probably watching the Power Rangers or something.

The only notable NFL comeback games that I remember, are the Niners in '02, and the Music City Miracle.

I remember falling asleep while the Packers were being beaten down in Glendale back in '09 by like 3 TD's, only to wake up to a tied game that ended up going back and forth, with Rodgers just missing Donald Driver on a deep ball in OT to complete the comeback. That was a fun game.
