The Buffalo Bills began as a Charter Franchise of the new American Football League (AFL). They adopted their name from the AAFC team Buffalo Bills. By the 1964 season, the team was competing for the AFL Championship which they won by defeating the Chargers 20-7. Both teams would repeat and get into the championship game but the result was the same, a Bills 23-0 victory.

In 1969, the Bills drafted Orenthal James Simpson and in 1970, the franchise merged with the National Football League and became a part of the AFC East where they still are.
The Bills would not make it into the playoffs until the 1974 season but it was the decade of the 90’s that the franchise really began to shine. Beginning in the 1990 season, the team would quad-peat into the Super Bowl 4 straight seasons, between 1990 and 1993, and became the first franchise to make it to and lose all four. Though the franchise would continue to make playoff appearances in the 90’s, the team never made it back to the Super Bowl.

The Bills began play at War Memorial Stadium where they stayed from 1960-1972. The team then moved to Rich Stadium where they play to this day. The stadium has changed names, it was Rich Stadium from 1973-1998, Bills Stadium for six games in 1998 and Ralph Wilson Stadium from 1998 to present.
The Bills have won two League Championships, four Conference Championships, ten Division Championships and have appeared in the NFL Playoffs seventeen times in fifty seasons.
