Bills' 21-point road recovery worth a look

By Tim Graham

Nearly 17 years ago, the Buffalo Bills pulled off the greatest comeback in NFL history. That's not just my opinion. The Pro Football Hall of Fame and the NFL Network have declared what transpired in January 1993 as the most epic rally the league has seen.

The Bills beat the Houston Oilers despite trailing by 32 points at halftime.

The stakes weren't nearly as high and the deficit not quite as deep Sunday. But the Bills pulled off a victory almost as astonishing in Paul Brown Stadium.

The Cincinnati Bengals led the Bills by 21 points early in the second quarter and 17 points at halftime. Then the Bills morphed into another team in the second half, scoring 35 unanswered points to turn a blowout defeat into a rout.

Some facts and figures pertaining to another epic Bills comeback:
"There's no quit in this team," Fitzpatrick said. "You really saw that in the second half. When you get that first win, then you start learning how to win, and everything starts falling into place. What a great team effort."
