History

The Buffalo Bills began play in 1960 as an expansion franchise in the American Football League. Ralph Wilson was the original team owner in 1960. The club became a charter member of the National Football League’s American Football Conference in 1970 when the AFL and NFL merged with one another.

The team got its name from a fan write-in contest. The name Buffalo Bills was a play on the famous western showman Buffalo Bill, and was also named in honor of a former Buffalo Bills team that played in the defunct All-America Football Conference. That franchise was completely independent from the current Bills team and had earlier merged with the Cleveland Browns.

The Bills played their home games in Buffalo’s War Memorial Stadium from 1960 until 1972 before moving into Rich Stadium (now known as Ralph Wilson stadium) located in Orchard Park, which is a suburb of Buffalo. The new stadium was needed because the NFL required all teams to play in stadiums that had capacities of at least 50,000. However, it took threats of moving the franchise by owner Ralph Wilson to finally get a new stadium built in the 1970’s.

The Bills have played their home games in Rich Stadium since 1972, though in 2008 they began playing one home game each season in Toronto’s Rogers Stadium. This gives the club the distinction of being the only NFL team to play a regular season home game in Canada.

The Bills won two consecutive AFL Championships in 1964 and 1965 and became the only team in NFL history to reach four straight Super Bowls between 1990 and 1993. Unfortunately, they are also well known for having come out on the losing end on all four occasions. For these Super Bowl appearances, the Bills were led by star players such as QB Jim Kelly, RB Thurman Thomas, and DE Bruce Smith who is one of the NFL’s all time leaders in QB sacks. Another player of note in Bills history is RB OJ Simpson who played with the club during the mid 1970’s and is the only player in NFL history to gain 2,000 rushing yards in a 14 game season.
