CORNING, N.Y. (WENY) -- If you were watching the NFL's wild card weekend, you may have noticed an unfamiliar team in playoffs.
On Sunday, the Buffalo Bills squared off against the Jacksonville Jaguars in their first playoff appearance in seventeen years.
The Bills won a playoff spot when the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Baltimore Ravens in the last week of the regular season.
The game had many local Bills fans excited to finally see their team in the hunt after many seasons of disappointment.
"It feels so good as a Bills fan to go through all this waiting, all this time as a Buffalo fan," said Buffalo Bills fan, Richard Capo. "Even if we didn't win the playoff game, I still think that the season is definitely a success for us Bills fans. Just making it to this point takes a huge monkey off our back."
According to CBS Sports, even though the Bills lost three to ten against the Jaguars, the team snaps their record for longest playoff drought in professional sports.
They say the record for most seasons without making the the playoffs now belongs to the Seattle Mariners with sixteen seasons.
