This Day in Sports: The Greatest Comeback in NFL History
On this day 26 years ago we were all witness to the greatest comeback in NFL history.
The Buffalo Bills met the Houston Oilers in the 1993 Wild Card Playoff Game. This match-up pitted Warren Moon against Frank Reich in an epic game. Although, the way this game started it didn't feel so epic to all of the 75,141 fans at Orchard park that day, unless of course you were an Oliers fan.
The Oilers jumped out to a commanding 35-3 lead midway through the third quarter until the Buffalo offense and defense started to sync up in beautiful harmony. The defense would finally get some stops and the receivers began to bust some Houston coverage's.
Andre Reed was the receiving star for Reich in this one as he caught 11 passes for a cool 136 yards and three touchdowns.
The Bills would outscore Houston in the third quarter 28-7 and at the end of regulation the game was knotted at 38. In overtime a Warren Moon pass would be picked off and that would lead to a game winning field goal, yes those actually did happen for the Bills at some point in the 90's during the playoffs, by Steve Christie.
