Bills fall to Texans in AFC Wild Card game, 22-19 (full coverage)

The 2019 Buffalo Bills season began with Josh Allen leading his team from a 16-0 deficit to a last-minute comeback victory. It ended with the Bills taking a 16-0 lead, and surrendering a 19 point comeback in an overtime loss to the Houston Texans. With a 22-19 result, the Texans advanced in the AFC playoffs after a tense, back-and-forth affair. The Bills and the Texans each had moments of magic, moments of mishaps, and moments of sheer WTF-ery, but the Texans came through in the clutch, and the Bills came up empty.

The Buffalo Bills still haven’t won a playoff game since 1995.





The Bills have been playoff caliber all season long, on their way to 10 wins and a spot in the tournament. Now, the focus shifts to championship caliber — do they have what it takes to win a title?

Phase one of the championship chase starts this week with Buffalo’s Wild Card playoff game against the Houston Texans.

It’s only the Bills second playoff appearance in the last 20 years. They’re 14-16 all time in postseason football –  3-4 in the Wild Card round. The Bills haven’t won a playoff game since 1995, when they beat the Dolphins in a Wild Card game.
