Saturday’s AFC Wild Card game between the Houston Texans and the Buffalo Bills brought back memories for many of the heartbreaking 1993 game between the two teams known as “The Comeback.”

The last time the two teams met in the playoffs, the Bills set an NFL record for the largest comeback in NFL history by rallying from a 32-point deficit for a 41-38 overtime win against the Houston Oilers in a Wild Card game in 1993.

While it’s the Texans now and not the Oilers, many took to social media after the game to share how this win was revenge for them.
