Buffalo’s Super Bowl Run Amazing Despite No Wins

No team wants to be the Super Bowl runner up.  Every team plays to win it all and, even if making the Super Bowl means being one step away from that, it is far from a satisfactory consolation prize.  Despite that, once upon a time the Buffalo Bills did something very impressive without ever winning a single title.  In the early 1990s, they played in four consecutive Super Bowls.  Sure, they lost all four, but it is still one of the best feats in NFL history.

The run started with Super Bowl XXV, where they lost by a score of 20-19 to the New York Giants thanks to Scott Norwood’s shanked field goal.  The next three Super Bowls were not close, and featured to losses to the Dallas Cowboys.  On the one hand, they were the Super Bowl losers for four years in a row.  On the other hand, they were the AFC champions for four seasons in a row as well.  No other team has ever played in four straight Super Bowls.  There is a good chance it never happens again.  It was an incredible run.

While Bills fans are surely disappointed in those four years they didn’t win title, they can still be happy that their team was able to come that close in four consecutive seasons.  Hey, it is a better scenario than Buffalo fans are currently facing with the Bills are +500,000 on Sportsbook to win the Super Bowl.  Making the Super Bowl and losing is certainly better than having one of the worst teams in the league.
