YouTube Saturday: Revisiting the 1992 "No Punt Game"

Back on September 13, 1992, the Buffalo Bills traveled to Candlestick Park to take on the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2 regular season action.  One kickoff and 60 minutes later, the Bills had emerged 34-31 victors in a thrilling explosion of offensive fireworks.  The two teams combined for 1,086 yards of offense, and for the first time in NFL history, an entire game was played without either team punting.

This game also fits with this morning's theme of Bills tight end play; this was one of the most clutch performances of Bills TE Pete Metzelaars' career, as he finished the game with 4 receptions for 113 yards (a whopping 28.3 yards per reception!) and two crucial touchdowns.

By popular demand, here's an abbreviated version of 1992's classic "No Punt Game".  Also, if you are interested in watching the entirety of the game - yes, on YouTube - the game exists in full in several chunks; the playlist begins here.
