It was not the kind of rally Bills fans were hoping for, but they turned out in droves in Niagara Square downtown after a very humbling 20-19 loss in Super Bowl XXV on this date in 1991.
Estimates had the crowd at 10-thousand as the players spilled off buses after returning from their gut-wrenching loss. No one took it harder than kicker Scott Norwood, whose 47-yard attempt missed with two seconds remaining.
After a handful of dignitaries, coach Levy and a few players stepped to the microphone to address the crowd, the fans began chanting, ‘We want Scott! We want Scott! We want Scott!’
Eventually Norwood came to the lectern and expressed his gratitude for the support he got the day after his most humbling day in professional sports and perhaps his life. Here’s a look at Norwood stepping to the lectern amid the chants.
