If there is a team that excerpts dominance but can’t get the final holy grail, it would be the Buffalo Bills who have won multiple championships in the American Football League (AFL) and in the National Football League (NFL), but have never won the prestigious Super Bowl despite appearing in four.
Over their 61 year journey which began in 1959, the Bills have had a few dominant periods in the AFL as well as in the NFL, when the two leagues merged in 1970. The first dominant years for the Bills came in the mid 60s, under coach Lou Saban.
After a slow start in their first years in the AFL, the Bills acquired running back Cookie Gilchrist and quarterback Jack Kemp in 1962. While the Bills appeared in their maiden playoff with a 26-8 loss to the Boston Patriots a year after signing the pair, it was the next few years where the Bills really asserted their presence in the competition.
From there on in, the Bills would make four consecutive AFL playoff appearances from 1963-66, claiming the AFL Championship in 1964 and 1965 when they defeated the San Diego Chargers on both occasions.
The next year would hurt Bills fans as they had a chance to go to the first Super Bowl (at the time it was the AFL vs the NFL), when they fell to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFL Championship game.
When the AFL and NFL finally came as one in 1970, the Bills didn’t taste the success they had a decade earlier, in fact their only positive during the 70s could be the emergence of O.J. Simpson, despite debuting in 1969, it was in the 70s where he really made a name for himself.
During his time at the Bills before his move to San Francisco, Simpson made 112 apparences for the Bills, rushed 10,183 yards and scored 57 touchdowns. After claiming the AFC East division at the beginning of the 80s, the rest were mediocre until the Bills hired coach Marv Levy in 1986.
Since’s Levy’s appointment he installed a dominant team from 1988-97 which saw the Bills appear in the playoffs eight times (1988-1992 and 1994-1996) as well as clinching the AFC East six times throughout the 80s and 90s (1988-1991, 1993 and 1995).
Levy’s dominant team could also be due to the players he picked up such as Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, running back Thurman Thomas and defensive end Bruce Smith who all had pivotal roles to play during the dominant era.
Levy also took the Bills to four consecutive Super Bowl appearances from 1990-1993, however, they fell short on each four occasions. Since the dominance of the late 80s and early 90s the Bills had to endure a 17 year hiatus from playoff action during the 2000s and 2010s before they returned in 2017, in which they went down to Jacksonville in the wildcard playoffs 10-3.
The Bills returned to the playoffs in 2019 when they finished second in the American Football Conference East but fell short in the wildcard playoffs losing to the Houston Texans.
If you are a fan of the Buffalo Bills, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Buffalo Bills have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Buffalo Bills:
After long stints at both the Philadelphia Eagles (2001-2010) and the Carolina Panthers (2011-2016), Sean McDermott was given his chance to head coach the Buffalo Bills in prior to the 2017 season. For the Bills, competing in the AFC East division has been one of the toughest challenges in football due to the recent 20-year dominance of the New England Patriots.
However, after three seasons as head coach in Buffalo, McDermott has led the Bill to two postseason campaigns, and a positive 25-23 record. Most recently, McDermott took the 10-6 Bills to the 2019 AFC wild card game, which resulted in an overtime loss to the Texans.
Still looking for his first playoff victory, McDermott is coming into his fourth season in charge, with the hope of coinciding a stretch of Bills success with the presumed decline of the ‘Brady-less’ Patriots. Having not won an AFC East division championship since 1995, 2020 will be the Bills best chance to take out their division, and McDermott’s best chance to secure his debut playoff win.
Due to a fractured relationship with the Minnesota Vikings, Stefon Diggs will be suiting up for the Buffalo Bills with a point to prove in the 2020 season. Coming off the best season of his career, Diggs recorded six receiving touchdowns, 63 receptions for 1,130 receiving yards (career high) at 17.9 yards per carry (career high) in the 2019 season.
The relationship between Diggs and the Vikings took a turn for the worse when Minnesota elected to become a rushing dominant offence, utilising running back Dalvin Cook. With Cook bearing the load of the offence, Diggs didn’t want to compete for fewer targets with fellow receiver Adam Thielen, resulting in the trade.
Having been recognised as the primary receiver in Buffalo, Diggs will be the number one option for up and coming franchise quarterback Josh Allen. Another year of development for Allen, and Diggs coming off a career best year at 26 years of age, the Bills offense is certainly going to be more dangerous in 2020 thanks to the addition of Stefon Diggs.
After just three years in the NFL, Tre’Davious White has already established himself as one of the best cornerbacks in the league. White was selected on the All Pro First Team off the back of a league leading six interceptions and 58 tackles in 2019. As well as his ability to intercept the ball, White also finished the season having not allowed a single touchdown reception by an opponent.
In the Bills 2019 post season campaign, White came up against Deandre Hopkins, in a highly anticipated matchup. White won the battle, finishing with five combined tackles, including a forced fumble on Hopkins, however the Texans won the match, defeating the Bills 22-19 in overtime.
Having exercised the fifth-year option of his rookie deal, White will be one of the most discussed defensive contracts in the league for the next two seasons, with a big pay day looming. Possessing the ability to both defend and intercept the ball at the elite level, Tre’Davious White was the most important player on the Bills 2019 second ranked team defence, a feat he will be looking to replicate in the 2020 season.
After a 17 year hiatus the Bills returned to the playoffs in 2017 and then again in 2019, where they achieved a wildcard berth against the Houston Texans when they claimed second in the AFC East Conference with a 10-6 record. Unfortunately for the Bills faithful they went down to the Texans 22-19 in overtime.
The Bills finished the 2019 NFL season with a 9-5-2 record against the spread (the best in the AFC East), while when they were against the spread at home they were 3-5-2 which was the second worst in the division. They were the best away team in regards to against the spread in the AFC Eastern conference when they had a 6-0-2 record.
When looking at the over / under record the Bills had an overall record 4-13-0, the worst in the conference and had the second worst home record in the conference with a 2-6-0 record and were ranked last in the conference as the away team with a 2-7-0 record.
A day before the Bills season opener with the New York Jets they had a value of +8500, and after they won three in a row their value went down to +4667. The shortest odds the Bills occurred was when they were +3100 on December 16, on the day of a clash against Pittsburgh (in which they won).
Leading up to that Pittsburgh clash the Bills had won five games of the last eight matches. The Bills finished with +6200 before they played a postseason game (where they lost) to the Houston Texans in a wildcard playoff.
