    • Four Falls of Buffalo - Hall of Famers Autographed Poster
      Four Falls of Buffalo - Bills Poster - Hall of Fame Autographs. 
      (If you need a clearer picture just let me know and I can send them through a different medium).   Four Falls of Buffalo is a 2015 documentary film produced for ESPN's 30 for 30 series and was directed by Ken Rodgers of NFL Films. The film profiles the Buffalo Bills teams of the early 1990s, when the franchise became the first team to play in -- and lose -- four consecutive Super Bowls.   This is truly ONE OF A KIND. You will not find something like this elsewhere.
      This belongs to only truest and most dedicated Buffalo Bills fans.

      Price: I have an offer in Dallas that I am willing to honor if I don't get a higher bidder-- this guy is a sports fan, but not a Bills fan. I wanted to go to the Bills Mafia community before giving to a generalist NFL Fan.   A beautiful poster that was gifted to me by my former colleague Dennis Polian, Bill's son, while working at Texas A&M Football program on staff.   Autographs include SIX Hall of Famers:  - Bill Polian '15 (General Manager) - Marv Levy '01 (Head Coach) - Bruce Smith '09 (Defensive End) - Thurman Thomas '07 (Runningback) - Jim Kelly '02 (Quarterback) - Andre Reed '14 (Wide Receiver)   Other signatures include: Scott Norwood (K), Frank Reich (current Head Coach of the Indianapolis Colts), and one more I am having a hard time identifying.

    • I've Got Nuthin'
      © Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports
       
      I’ve written this column for about 15 years.  It varies from week to week, sometimes about the stadium experience, sometimes about an important play, sometimes about what players or coaches did or didn’t do.  I write about trends, prospects, shortcomings and needs.  Sometimes it might be funny, sometimes quirky, and certainly sometimes boring or pedestrian.  When I start writing, I don’t always have a plan – the essay just seems to go where it needs to go.
       
      Last night in Kansas City, in the second round of the playoffs, the Chiefs beat the Buffalo Bills in overtime, 42-36.  This morning, I sit before my keyboard, numb.
       
      I’ve got nuthin’.
       
      If you watched the game, you understand.  If you didn’t, I cannot go all Grantland Rice on you to explain.  I’m not Shirley Povich.  Where is Frank Deford when we really need him?  
       
      I’ve been a fan of the Buffalo Bills since 1960.  There were several years when work and family and geography left me less involved with the team, not going to games or being able to see them on television.  Still, fan-wise, I’ve had a pretty good run.   I can say figuratively, if not literally, I’ve seen it all.
       
      The only way to describe what happened last night is that it was Wide Right, 31 years later.  (If you don’t know what Wide Right was, look it up.  It has its own Wikipedia article.)  I was in Tampa that night, I sat in the stadium stunned as the winning field goal sailed past the right upright.  (I was in Buffalo on the Monday night when the Cowboys beat the Bills with a long field goal on the final play – that game gets honorable mention, but wide right and Chiefs-Bills stand together on top of the “OMG -what-just-happened?” list.)  The day after Super Bowl XXV, I walked aimlessly through Epcot Center, and it seemed every third person was wearing a Giants sweatshirt.  This morning, everything is Chiefs red.

    • Bills Season Ends in Historic Divisional Playoff Loss
      © Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports
       
      It was one for the history books. Buffalo and Kansas City traded punches over the final two minutes of regulation and overtime. When it was all said and done, it was the Chiefs that came out a 42-36 winner in Sunday's divisional playoff game.
       
      Over the final two minutes of regulation play, the lead changed hands three times. A total of 25 points was scored as it was one of those games where the last team with the ball was likely to win. Kansas City held a 26-21 lead when Buffalo QB Josh Allen took over and led the Bills on a 17-play drive that would give the Bills the lead. It wasn't easy.
       
      To keep the drive alive, Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott would go for it on 4th-and-4 from the Kansas City 30-yard line. Then, the Bills faced a 4th-and-13 at the Chiefs 27-yard line. Allen found a wide-open Gabriel Davis in the end zone to give Buffalo a 29-23 lead with 1:54 left in the game.

      That, of course, was plenty of time for Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes to lead Kansas City on a scoring drive of its own. It didn't take long. On a 2nd-and-10 play from their own 36-yard line, Mahomes hit WR Tyreek Hill over the middle. The fleet-footed receiver did the rest, and 64 yards later, the Chiefs were back in the lead. The extra point made it 33-29 with 1:02 remaining in the game.
       
      Needing a touchdown, the Bills and Allen quickly marched the ball down the field. Allen hit Davis twice, once for 28 yards and a second time for 12. A 16-yard completion to Emmanuel Sanders set the Bills up at the Kansas City 19-yard line with 23 seconds to play. On the very next play, Allen found Davis for his playoff record fourth touchdown reception and a 36-33.

      The Wild Card Round is over and delivered several blowouts. Of the six games played, only two were competitive. The weekend's first game had the Bengals holding off the pesky Raiders with an interception in the waning moments to deliver Cincinnati their first playoff victory since 1991. Sunday afternoon's game saw the weekend's other competitive contest as the visiting 49ers held off a furious rally by the Cowboys. In this game, victory was not assured until Dak Prescott inexplicably decided to run for more yardage than he should have and slid in the middle of the field with 9 seconds remaining. With no timeouts, they were unable to get another play off.
       
      The weekend's blowouts began Saturday evening in Buffalo at Highmark Stadium. The Bills completely dismantled the New England Patriots, who looked like they forgot to show up and didn't want to be outside in the frigid weather. As a result, Buffalo set several playoff records in the undressing of Bill Belichick's unprepared team. Even if the *Patriots had shown up, they were not winning on this night. For if there is such a thing as an NFL exorcism, Buffalo thoroughly performed one Saturday evening by exorcizing the New England demons of the past two decades.
       
      Touchdowns on seven, count 'em, seven straight drives. No punts. Seven third downs and no fourth downs. Josh Allen had more touchdown passes (5) than incompletions (4). Up 27-3 at the half, they picked off Mac Jones on the *Patriots' first drive of the second half, and the rout was assured as they cruised to a 47-17 laugher. They did allow a couple of second-half garbage touchdowns while playing defense at half throttle.  
       
      The weekend's other three blowouts saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers outclass the Philadelphia Eagles, the Kansas City Chiefs destroy the Pittsburgh Steelers by scoring five touchdowns in the span of fifteen minutes and Monday night's game had the LA Rams confuddling the Arizona Cardinals.

    • Playoffs Edition - Buffalo Bills vs New England Patriots - A Few Thoughts about the game, in no particular order
      © Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports
       
      Indifference can be either a really good or bad thing. I've had football Sundays where I didn't realize I was watching a Bills game until well into the 2nd quarter. Obviously, I'm watching the game, but it just feels like I'm watching any other program. Typically, I wake up on a football Sunday, and I'm already mentally planning my morning around pregame shows, food, and whatever else I have to do that day. But some days, like Saturday, I was alarmingly non-nonchalant and didn't have a single worry about the game. I knew we could beat them but also knew a season-ending game to the Pats would stick with me all off-season. Regardless, I was cool as a cucumber going into what would become a perfect game and arguably the best Bills game of the past 25 years. 
       
      1 - Seven - There's been a lot of stats being thrown out about this game to represent just how historic it was. For me, the stat that really defines this game is that we only had seven third down plays. Not only that, but I don't believe any of them were longer than 4 yards. I mean, seriously? There are blowout wins, there's imposing your will, then there's just doing whatever you want and basically running a practice against another team. Seven total third downs, including the kneel down? It makes no sense how any team should be able to do that to another professional NFL team. But man, if it was going to happen, aren't you glad it was against the Pats?

    • Buffalo Bills vs. Kansas City Chiefs Divisional Round preview
      © Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports
       
      Yet another rematch of the Buffalo Bills vs. Kansas City Chiefs. Although these two teams aren’t as familiar with one another as the Bills and Patriots are, there is plenty of recent history in this matchup. Bills Fans remember a sour end to the season last year when the Chiefs toppled the Rumbling Herd 38-24 in the AFC Conference Championship game.
       
      On the one hand, the Bills have already gotten their revenge by beating the Chiefs down 38-20 in Kansas City during Week 5. But the heartbreak remains. Winning a regular-season game means nothing once the playoffs are here. It’s always about the next one. 
       
      Only now Bills Mafia has the advantage and confidence inside, knowing they can dominate the Chiefs and even disrupt Patrick Mahomes, forcing turnovers. In Week 5, the Bills forced the Chiefs to turn the ball over four times, which tied for their most giveaways all season. With just one multi-interception game in his next 13 starts, Mahomes has since bounced back and even worked his way back into the MVP conversation.
       
      Conversely, Mahomes was never tasked with facing another defense as strong as Buffalo’s. The Bills may have actually found some ways to consistently fluster Mahomes, which could carry over into this matchup.

    • Bills Make Statement with 47-17 Win Over New England in Wild Card Round
      © Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports
       
      It was an absolute clinic on the game of football. The Buffalo Bills set several NFL playoff records, one of which was scoring a touchdown on each of its first seven drives of the game. The Bills dominated every facet of Saturday’s wild-card playoff game from the beginning of the game until the final kneel down to end it.
       
      It started with the opening kickoff. Buffalo QB Josh Allen led the Bills down the field on a game-opening scoring drive that took 5:15 and ended 70 yards later, with Allen hitting TE Dawson Knox on an eight-yard touchdown pass.
       
      It continued into the Patriots’ opening drive when rookie quarterback Mac Jones led the Patriots to the Buffalo 34-yard line. Jones threw deep into the left corner of the end zone for WR Nelson Agholor but was intercepted by Buffalo S Micah Hyde.
       
      Once again, Allen calmly and methodically led Buffalo down the field for its second touchdown. The drive went 80 yards, took ten plays, and five minutes off the clock. The drive ended with another Allen-to-Knox touchdown pass, this one from 11 yards out.
       

      © Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports
       
      For the game, Allen would finish 21-of-25 for 308 yards and five touchdowns. He did not throw an interception, and New England did not sack him. Knox led the Bills with five catches for 89 yards and the two scores. Gabriel Davis and Emmanuel Sanders each caught two passes, one of which was a touchdown.
       
      The Bills also ran for 174 yards, led by RB Devin Singletary, who carried the ball 16 times for 81 yards. He ran for two touchdowns, both in the second quarter, to give Buffalo a 27-0 lead. The Patriots would not score until the end of the first half. With one second remaining in the opening half, kicker Nick Folk hit a 44-yard field goal.
