    I would say the Comeback game. It showed just how talented those teams were. Several starters didn't play besides Kelly.

    Picking a playoff game is too easy.

    1980 opener, beating the fish for the first time in 20 tries, 17-7.

    Jets at Bills, week 1 1986. It did not end in a win, but it showed just what the Bills had in a young gunslinger named Jim Kelly, and in Andre Reed, Kent Hull, Bruce Smith. . . . Spiked, OP, and Coastal of course started pissing and moaning as their opinions would sound as ridiculous as them for the next 14 years.

    Iíd go comeback but would also add the Miami win to end the 0-20 streak opening day which saw the goalposts come down (as mentioned above)

    never have I seen a crowd reaction at being 1-0

    comeback 1
    fish squish 2
    OJ record 3

    For all of us old guys, I'll take the 1964 AFL Championship game, where we beat San Diego and Mike Stratton maimed Keith Lincoln.
    Should have known, way back in 1960 when we drafted Richie Lucas Number 1, that this would be a long, hard ride. But who could have known it would be THIS bad?

    I really debated between the Comeback and this game. I chose the Comeback, but your justification make sense. I change my mind, I go with this game.

    I like the pumpkin bowl. At jets, Monday Night. Mark Gastineaus girlfriend is assaulted in the stands, he quits later that week despite being the current sack leader. Total mayhem in the stands. Puss whipped. It was great.

    1965 Bills - 10-3-1 Champs.

    They were killed with injuries. Gilcrist left. Both WR's out for the year ( Dubenion,Bass). Had to go to San Diego for the Championship game against a team loaded with All-Stars on O. Looked like a mismatch.

    23-0 Bills - D was magnificent.

    I'd have to go with the Comeback Game.

    Honorable mention:
    Beating the Jets in '88 to clinch the div title.
    The final AFC Championship game against the Chiefs- I was at the game and it was never in doubt, but it set a record that still hasn't been broken of 4 straight SB appearances (and probably never will in the age of the cap and FA).

    Not necessarily a good outcome but the Steelers practice squad beating Bledsoe was pretty freakin huge.

    me too. The Steelers backups were really talented including that RB Parker that just went off in that game, late like 60+ yard run sealed it, couple key penalties including a pick called on Josh Reed when it looked like we were going in for the winning score, then we miss the chipee field goal. Just a devastating loss. I went with my son and neither of us said a word for over an hour after
