Super Bowl Weekend: Bills Connections

For the 18th straight season, the Buffalo Bills are not part of Super Bowl festivities. Don’t be ashamed though Bills fans, because Buffalo still has ties to the big game. Lets see if you recognize any of these records.

  • Most Games Played – Mike Lodish, 4 with Buffalo and 2 with Denver
  • Most Games Started – Cornelius Bennett, 4 with Buffalo and 1 with Atlanta (shares the record with 5 others)
  • Most Consecutive Appearances – Gale Gilbert, 4 with Buffalo and 1 with San Diego
  • Most Passing Attempts in a game – Jim Kelly with 58 in Super Bowl XXVI
  • Most Fumbles in a game – Jim Kelly and Frank Reich with 3 each in Super Bowl XXVI and XXVII
  • Most Fumbles Recovered in their Career – Kenneth Davis with 2 (shares the record with 12 others)
  • Most Fumble Return Yards and Longest Fumble Return – Leon Lett with 64 yards in Super Bowl XXVII (everyone remembers him being chased down by Don Beebe)
  • Most Safeties in a Game – Bruce Smith with 1 in Super Bowl XXV (shares the record with 5 others)
  • Longest Field Goal – Steve Christie at 54 yards in Super Bowl XXVII
  • Most Consecutive Super Bowls – Buffalo Bills with 4
  • Most Super Bowl Losses – Buffalo Bills with 4 (shares the record with 3 other teams)
  • Most Consecutive Super Bowl Losses – Buffalo Bills with 4
  • Most Super Bowl Appearances without Winning – Buffalo Bills with 4 (shares the record with Minnesota)
  • Smallest Margin of Victory – 20-19 Giants vs. Bills
  • Fewest Interceptions in a game – 0 Bills vs. Giants

There are other records, but I thought I’d throw out some good and bad ones in which the Bills still hold. There will be 47 Super Bowls after this year and the Bills have been in 4 of them, while their records still stand. The current team will continue to look to the future, but they must first understand the past in order to move forward.
