Classic. And one where a late game missed kick went went our way. As good a game as I've ever seen.

One of the funnest games I've ever seen - even if funnest isn't a word.

 

The NFL may last hundreds of years but this game will always be in the record books.  

 

Those two offenses were on fire.

Must be cool to have good memories.

My memory of the Bills 49'rs was a 10-3 game that I consider the worst game I have ever seen.

One of the most fun games I ever witnessed in person. The 49ers fans were extremely smug in those days.

Doug Marrone single handedly made up for the lack of punts in that game in his 1 season with the Bills

I watched some 49er games in San Fran.  Smug indeed back in the day.  And almost indifferent if the opponent wasn't a strong one.  Some fans didn't even bother to get up on their feet and cheer when the team scored.  Scoring was expected.  

 

They'd go wild for a long Rice TD, of course, but if was a 1 yard plunge - boring!

 

They're far more humble now.

So were Bills fans.  With good reason, those were the two best offenses in the league & it wasn't close.  That was one of the best games I have ever watched.  Watched it with my dad.  I remember Metz, stumbling for what seemed like a lifetime  into the end zone on one of the pass plays.  I miss those days.

Cocky v. Smug. Minor but noticeable difference. I would say that smug is slightly more annoying. ;)

I won a tape of that game in a raffle a long time ago and it is buried in a box somewhere in garage.

Do you think it has anything to do with you being there?  Don't blame yourself!

remember the game well. I believe that was about the time boomer started his bills/49ers superbowl predictions?

it's probably garbage by now. Heat would likely have destroyed it.

I remember being dizzy after watching that game on TV.  Then in the post-game, listening to Talley describe how he was dizzy after playing that game.

 

I can't believe 49ers fans wanted Bono to start over Steve Young.  :lol:
