Back to where it all began.
The Bills won their first of two AFL championships back in 1964 after a 12-2 season in the franchise’s fifth year of existence.
Bills fans were probably ready for a sustained dynasty at this point, and the team did follow through once again in 1965, as seen on the previous slide.
The win in the championship game came over the Chargers in an easy 20-7 victory. The Bills outscored the Chargers 17-0 after the first quarter.
This season marked the first time the Bills won the AFL Eastern division outright after losing a one-game playoff against the Patriots in 1963. The 12 wins also mark one of only five seasons in franchise history in which the team has won at least 12 games. The two losses remains the lowest loss total in a single season, although only 14 games were played in that season.
Looking at all the seasons included in this list gives Bills fans both good and bad flashbacks. Even with all the heartbreak, there is still plenty to celebrate. Fans still cheer the likes of Jim Kelly, Andre Reed, Thurman Thomas and plenty of other players who made Buffalo the center of the NFL universe during the late 80s and early 90s.
And as we have seen, one playoff berth can lead to some special seasons. After the postseason appearance in 2017, fans are hoping some similar magic can return to Buffalo, with a better ending this time around.
