Most Beloved Play In Buffalo Bills History

New, comments

During our post where you got to decide who was the most beloved Buffalo Bills figure in team history, someone brought up Don Beebe based on one play.

In Super Boxl XXVII with the score out of reach, Leon Lett of the Dallas Cowboys recovered a Frank Reich fumble and was taking it to the house. Beebe, the fastest player on the Bills, gave quick pursuit - and though Lett had a huge lead when he recovered the fumble, Beebe chased him down and prevented a touchdown.

This play is the definition of beloved. It's nobody's favorite play. Nobody loves the fact that the Bills were getting blown out in the Super Bowl and losing their third straight. But Beebe showed competitiveness and heart in the face of all of that. That's why the play after the jump is the most beloved play in Buffalo Bills history.
