Return Flight: Best Moments Against the Bills

I admit I don't know much about the history of this rivalry. It seems like the Bills pretty much owned the Jets in the past. In fact, from 1988-97, their record against us was 17-3. We did have a five game win streak over them before that though. And currently, we have also won five straight against them.

These are just my personal preferences, so feel free to educate me and post in the comments section which great moments against the Bills stand out for you.

1. September 8, 2002. It was the season opener, and Gang Green travelled to Buffalo. Chad Morton returned a kick in the second quarter for a 98 yard touchdown. The game went into overtime tied at 31, and Chad returned another kick for a 96 yard touchdown to win it and spoil Drew Bledsoe's debut in Buffalo. Sadly, Morton would leave at the end of the season, along with three other Jets-Skins.

2. November 24, 2002. After that first win in Buffalo, Gang Green would lose three straight, and eventually go 2-5. Chad Pennington took over for Vinny Testaverde, and the Jets won three straight. Both teams were 5-5 going into their rematch in the Meadowlands. This wasn't as close as the previous game, and much heap was praised upon Pennington as he sealed the win with a 1 yard touchdown run, faking out a linebacker (I believe it was Eddie Robinson). That was just a great moment for me, and I really thought we would eventually win a Super Bowl with #10. Of course, we would lose the next game at Oakland, as well as the rematch in the playoffs. I blame Herman Edwards' in-flight movie choice of "Gangs of New York".

3. November 6, 2011. What made this very sweet for me was that Buffalo was getting much heap praised upon them for actually having a good start to the season, and while we were counted out, especially going into Buffalo, we took them down a peg. A whole peg. That started a whole string of losses for them, including another one against us later that month.

There are a few other good ones that were suggested in the Random Thread, but personally there are factors that put a damper on them. Jim Kelly's first loss was a good one, but as mentioned above, Kelly would own the Jets for most of his career. The win in Toronto was a great one in front of a national audience, helping to build the legend of Darrelle Revis, but Mark Sanchez didn't slide and would be taken out of the game. Shaun Ellis' touchdown of J.P. Losman's fumble was awesome as well, but the Jets would still miss the postseason.

So that's what I've got. So Gangsters, it's your turn to tell us what you think are the best moments against the Buffalo Bills.
