Every Buffalo Bills ‘Scorigami’ game in franchise history
The Buffalo Bisons nabbed the first Scorigami in a battle with… the New York Yankees?
So the Buffalo Bisons aren’t technically the Buffalo Bills franchise that started when Ralph Wilson got the OK from the AFL in 1959. According to ProFootballReference, this game took place in 1927 on a Wednesday (of all days to play a football game)! The Bisons had a few years in the middle 1920s that they participated in, before getting another start later in 1946.
This would be a 19-8 loss for the Bisons, and that remains the only score almost 100 years later. The scoring summary from this game has some legendary names that you won’t soon forget. Red Grange scored the first touchdown for the Yankees to build a 7-0 lead. The Bisons would get on the board with a safety, making it 7-2.
Here’s the real kicker: The guy who scored the final two touchdowns for the Yankees? A guy named Wild Bill Kelly. Knowing the history from how the Bills got inspired from Buffalo Bill Cody, who hosted a wild-west-like show is just classic.
Not much else is here to report from this game, minus the Bisons’ head coach Dim Batterson and Harlan Carr (who scored the only touchdown for Buffalo). The Bills lost 19-8. Now you’ll know these guys the next time you play some NFL trivia.
Bills record so far: 0-1
