ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) — Before Super Bowl 50, Buffalo Bills players helped answer a burning question: What would have happened if the Bills won Super Bowl 25?
It was the first Super Bowl to be capped off with a play that actually decided a winner — Scott Norwood’s kick that went wide right.
In the pregame segment, some of the people involved imagined what would happen if Norwood made the kick.
“I couldn’t believe it,” said former New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms. “When he kicked the football, I thought it was going to go wide right.”
Former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly also weighed in on the kick, saying, “I have an amazing wife, beautiful children, more joy than maybe one man is entitled to his whole lifetime, but I don’t think I’ve ever been as happy as when Scott made that kick. Four Super Bowl victories in four years? We’re the greatest dynasty of all time.”
Former coach Marv Levy and play-by-play announcer Al Michaels were among the other stars who imagined this “alternate reality.”
