AFC Wild Card Playoff Game

January 8, 2000
Tennessee 22, Buffalo 16


One of the most memorable finishes in NFL playoff history gave the Tennessee Titans the franchise's first playoff win since 1991, a 22-16 stunner over the visiting Buffalo Bills. After Steve Christie kicked a 51-yard field goal to give Buffalo a 16-15 lead with 16 second remaining, the Titans' Kevin Dyson returned a Frank Wycheck lateral on the ensuing kickoff 75 yards for a touchdown, scoring with three seconds left in the game. The play termed by many as the "Music City Miracle," gave Tennessee a 22-16 lead that turned into a victory after Buffalo's last-ditch hopes for a matching return touchdown were thwarted.

The Titans took a 12-0 lead into intermission, but the Bills stormed back with a five-play drive caped off by the first of two Antowain Smith touchdown runs. Smith's second score gave the Bills a 13-12 lead with 11:08 remaining, a one-point advantage that stood until late in the game. Tennessee quarterback Steve McNair led a 10-play drive which culminated with an Al Del Greco field goal with 1:48 remaining, a 36-yard boot that gave the Titans a short-lived 15-13 advantage, taken away shortly thereafter by Christie's field goal. The Titans managed only 76 yards passing, but running back Eddie George paced the offense with a 29-carry, 106-yard performance. The victory, in front of a franchise-record crowd at the Coliseum, allowed the Tennessee franchise to advance to the AFC Division Playoffs for the first time since 1993.
