So yes, the Bills got us in 1988-89, but let’s be honest here, Houston Sports fans. There’s only one reason why Buffalo must be conquered and it only applies to two numbers. You think Atlanta has to hear 28-3. Imagine what we have to hear, Houston Sports fans?
With 13:19 to play, the Houston Oilers intercepted a Frank Reich pass to lead by that score. Then, the tragedy occurs. Of all the teams to blow a big lead like that, it just had to be us. This choke, collapse, or disaster if you will, not only resonated with Bills’ fans as a reason why the Bills were so talented in the AFC even though they lost four Super Bowls in a row. But it also was the beginning of the end for the Houston Oilers.
The Oilers would move to Tennessee where they became the Titans and who did they beat in the wild card round in the 1999 playoffs? The Buffalo Bills in what became known as the Music City Miracle. But this by no means counts as a Houston win against Buffalo. It counts for Tennessee, not Texas, Houston Sports fans.
So what must happen for us to beat Buffalo?
First of all, both teams must make the playoffs. Should it happen, the game must be a Wild Card game. Finally, the game must be played in Houston because we would have home-field advantage. The Bills don’t have Frank Reich nor Jim Kelly, who I do hope beats cancer once again because he’s one of the toughest individuals out there, at quarterback. They lost Tyrod Taylor and it took them seventeen years to get back to the playoffs.
Meanwhile, we got Deshaun Watson returning and our offense is higher up. Our defense is mostly the same aside from a few let-goes. We pretty much have to beat them. We need to go up 35-3 and then, we stick the hammer down and score more points then they do. I don’t care if the final score is 73-3 or whatever, we have to keep scoring and humiliate them for what they did for us.
Okay, Houston Sports fans, maybe that sounds rude. But a victory over the Bills in the playoffs would get revenge for the collapse.
