Buffalo’s postseason debut came at home at War Memorial Stadium against the then-Boston Patriots during the 1963 season AFL East play-in game, a contest played in snow and inclement weather. That day, the extreme weather was a factor and snow limited the power running of Bills legend Cookie Gilchrist during a 26-8 loss to Boston.
Fifty-nine seasons later, the third-seeded Bills welcome the sixth-seeded Patriots to Highmark Stadium for an 8:15 PM Saturday showdown, with conditions expected to resemble that 1963 playoff game, Saturday’s game is the 125th meeting all-time between the Bills and New England, with the Patriots leading the series 77-46-1.
