Bills vs. Browns: Was 2009 Match-Up the Worst Game Ever?

New, comments

One year ago the Buffalo Bills and the Cleveland Browns met on the field at Ralph Wilson Stadium. It was quite possibly the worst game of football I have ever seen. Just as an example of the ineptitude, Derek Anderson was the winning quarterback that day: 2-of-17 completions for 23 yards and one interception.

Bills fans will remember this game as the one that Roscoe Parrish muffed deep in his own territory. With the score tied 3-3 and three minutes left in regulation, Parrish mishandled a bouncing punt at his 16-yard line and former Bills special teamer Blake Costanzo recovered. After running out the majority of remaining time the Browns kicked a field goal and Buffalo's last ditch drive was not successful.

The Bills were flagged a crippling 13 times for 75 yards and turned the ball over three times in a game that Brian Galliford said was the straw that broke Dick Jauron's back:

"My guess is that fans calling for his head don't need to ask 'if' anymore; it now looks like a matter of 'when.'"

What say you, Bills fans? Was it the worst game you ever saw? I'll also nominate the 10-3 snoozefest against the 49ers from 2008.
