I have talked about the Nicknames of Defensive Teams. Now it’s time to mention the offense. The offensive line of the Buffalo Bills became the Electric Company. They turned on the Juice, which was O.J. Simpson’s Nick Name. Their names were as listed below:
Some of the names are in the Hall of Fame in Canton. Regardless of how good a runner is, he cannot succeed without a great support, Tackle to Tackle. The major drawback on O. J.’s nine years at Buffalo was that there were only three winning seasons and one playoff appearance.
That was in the first round in 1974 at Pittsburgh against the Steelers. The Bills lost to the Steelers by 32 to 14. The game was never close but there was one play that changed the momentum. Early in the second quarter, the Steelers scored a touchdown for a 9 to 7 lead. The lead was moving back and forth up to that time.
In the first quarter, the Steelers Roy Gerala kicked a field goal for a 3 to 0 lead. Then Joe Ferguson threw a touchdown pass to Paul Seymour for a 7 to 3 score after the first quarter.
In the second quarter, Terry Bradshaw threw a touchdown pass to Rocky Bleir. The Steelers led 9 to 7. The second play after the kickoff, Jim Braxton ran 28 yards, fumbled, and J. T. Thomas recovered for Pittsburgh. The Bills fell apart after that play. Final Steelers 32 Buffalo 14.
