Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills (1990 Playoffs)

The parallels to this game are eerily similar to the game the Buffalo Bills just had with the New England Patriots. The Dolphins had a 15-year stretch where they owned the division from 1970 to 1985 and the Bills were never really competitive.

Miami wouldn’t be as dominant from 1986-1989 but bounced back in 1990 and would finish second in the division to the Buffalo Bills. The two teams would meet for the first time in the playoffs, similar to this past weekend when Buffalo played New England for the first time in the playoffs.

The Bills would go on to win this game by a final score of 44-34 with Jim Kelly leading the way with 337 passing yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. Meanwhile, Thurman Thomas would add 117 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

This win over the Dolphins would start their run to their first trip to the Super Bowl. Hopefully, this could be a sign of things to come for this Buffalo Bills team with the way they started the playoffs this year being so similar.
