Taking pride in comeback
Saturday night’s stunning comeback by the Indianapolis Colts against the Kansas City Chiefs has many Buffalo Bills’ fans thinking back to the team’s glory days.
More than 21 years ago, Buffalo came back from 32 points down to defeat the Houston Oilers, 41-38, in overtime. A big disappointment was the game was not seen live locally due to the fact it did not sell out in time to beat the NFL imposed blackout rules.
Many, however, were glued to the radio hearing Dunkirk native Van Miller call the remarkable finish.
Indianapolis pulled some strings to get the sellout so their hometown fans could watch the 28-point comeback. It was thrilling to watch, but the Bills still own the largest comeback.
In 14 years of football futility, it is still something to have pride in.
