Blast from the Past! Last time the Buffalo Bills made the playoffs…


As suggested by @VenusdeBuffalo, I have decided to do a now and then comparison to when we were last in the playoffs. Almost like a type of therapy for the offseason. 14 LONG seasons with no postseason. And yes other 31 teams and fans in the NFL..WE KNOW. This graph somewhat explains our pain…

Maybe this will get us more amped to push our team even harder for playoffs this year but in any event lets take a look at how things have changed since the Buffalo Bills played in the post-season.
