Here it is! Get your tailgate going, because the offseason match-up we’ve all been waiting for starts now. After a grueling tournament, we’re down to two options in the quest to define the 2017 Buffalo Bills’ regular season with a single play.
The rules remain as simple as ever. Between the two plays below, select the one which best embodies the narrative of the 2017 season. Let the Championship begin!
The Buffalo Bills were holding onto playoff dreams by a thread. In their way stood the Indianapolis Colts and ultimately Mother Nature. In a tremendous game for photography (but not so much for passing statistics), the Colts took the Buffalo Bills to the wire. With time running out the Bills needed a miracle.
And they got two. Joe Webb found Deonte Thompson for a much-needed 34 yards for the first miracle. Without this toss by the third-string quarterback who had been practicing mostly on special teams throughout the week, the go-ahead score by LeSean McCoy likely wouldn’t happen.
After taking down the Miami Dolphins at home just two weeks earlier, the Bills closed the regular season with the rematch in Miami. The Bills would be completely sunk with a loss. Adding to the pressure, playoffs weren’t guaranteed with a victory. With no certainties to be had, the Bills dialed up the play below.
Kyle Williams was widely felt to be contemplating retirement. With this game potentially being his last in a Bills uniform, the Buffalo coaching staff decided to give him a proper send off. The message from this play was clear. Culture and teamwork above all other things.
Which play will forevermore define the Buffalo Bills 2017 season?
