It still hurts.

That unforgettable, heartbreaking – wide right loss in Superbowl XXV.

It’s one of the most memorable – and painful – sports events of all time in Buffalo – but it made the list of the best Super Bowls of all time.

So there’s that… 🙁

With the Super Bowl coming up, USA Today put out a ranking of every Super Bowl. That loss against the Giants – made the top ten.

Here’s what USA Today wrote about that game – which came in at number 8!

8. XXV (1990) Giants 20, Buffalo Bills 19: New York played keepaway from Buffalo’s explosive K-Gun offense, holding the ball for nearly 41 minutes, and got nice efforts from MVP Ottis Anderson (102 yards, TD) and backup QB Jeff Hostetler. But the Giants only survived thanks to Scott Norwood’s wayward 47-yard field goal in the final seconds.

Wayward = wide right.


If you’re wondering – the other Bills games ranked near the bottom.

32: (1993) Bills/Cowboys

40:  (1992) Bills/Cowboys

48:  (1991) Bills/Redskins


So where did the other games rank? Check out the entire list at

Our time will come. It has to!
