Rich Stadium, Jan. 15, 1994. It was winter, but it was not any ordinary winter's day. The temperature was 0, the wind-chill factor minus-32. And the red-hot L.A. Raiders were in town to play the Bills in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs. It remains the coldest game the Bills have ever played.
In the end, Jim Kelly and the Bills overcame both the cold and the Raiders, coming back, not once, but twice to beat Jeff Hostetler and the Raiders, 29-23.
