Bills-Oilers 1993 Comeback Game is a rare treat and great va

"This is a rebroadcast of the entire game - and best thing of all: no commercials!!! Of course, there is also little in the way of pregame, and no halftime, but other than one or two times where I thought I could perceive an edit made in the broadcast to fit everything into 2 hours or so, this is the actual broadcast, from beginning to end.
I am a lifelong Bills fan who lived in NYC when this game was played, so because of the blackout imposed in Buffalo for this game, this what about the only time for me that living in NYC worked to my advantage as far as seeing the Bills on TV when they were in their glory years. I remember the game well, and taped it and have revisited that tape (fast-forwarding much of the first half, of course), and this DVD appears to me to be a 98 or 99% complete rebroadcast.
Remember that this is presented in original, pre-hi-def NTSC format, so this will play on your big screen like any analog broadcast of today (e.g., NBC, instead of NBCHD). Charlie Jones and Todd Christensen (spelling?) do the play-by-play and the color commentary (and dig Todd's early 90's, permed mullet!).
This DVD is NOT the same as the NFL Films retrospective on the game shown on ESPN over the last few years, which was shot on film and included interviews with game participants many years later (and which does show well on a big screen). Of course, that was a great NFL Films presentation in and of itself, and a great complement to this DVD.
Regardless, to have this historic artifact at this low price makes this a GREAT VALUE for any Bills Fan!!!"

"Now I can wear my Greatest Comeback sweatshirt while watching the game! I lived in Buffalo when this game was played, and had to listen to it on the radio. I've seen bad VHS copies, probably taped from a TV screen, but never got to see that actual game until now. My only issue is that they used the NFL announcers instead of our more colorful Buffalo announcers who really added excitement to the comeback."
SIMPLY THE GREATEST FOOTBALL GAME OF ALL-TIME.

"First of all, I'm a Patriots fan. sorry. But anyone who truly loves the game of football will agree, regardless of which team you follow....This is THE greatest game in football history. period.
Forget the Ice Bowl, The 58 Colts v Giants championship game, Super Bowl III, The '81 playoff at the Orange Bowl as San Diego collapsed and found it again against the Dolphins, this '93 Bills game can't be beat. It's the all-time classic in the history of the NFL.
I remember sitting slack-jawed with eyes popping out my skull as by the final quarter America and I were thinking "what the hell could possibly happen next?" and simultaneously being dumbfounded by the deafening noise of the Bills 12th man in the third quarter. WHAT A NOISE ! the memory will live forever. I just wished i was there in the flesh to witness it. It must have been incredible for Bills fans. What a game! THE game!
Just an awesome, incredible and sublime and ridiculous afternoons entertainment, still as potently watchable today as it will be in another 15 years time. and the 50 years after that. The game of the ages, for all ages, it's just timeless. Thank you Buffalo Bills for giving us this unforgettable game.
watching this DVD every now and then reminds us why we have within us a deep love and passion for this incredible game of football that we all cherish."
