When you think of the Buffalo Bills meeting the Washington Football Team, the first thing that comes to mind is Super Bowl XXVI. Washington, of course, dominated the Bills, 37-24, en route to its third Super Bowl win in franchise history.

That game also symbolizes the last time Washington had a great team.

While Washington won the most important meeting ever between these two storied franchises, Buffalo has dominated the series since Washington’s Jan. 1992 win.

Since Washington won that game, the Bills have won seven of the last eight meetings between these two teams. Buffalo’s dominance began in 1993 with a 24-10 victory over Washington.

Washington picked up its first win in the series since 1992 in Dec. 2015, when Kirk Cousins had one of his best games for Washington, passing for 319 yards and four touchdowns, leading the WFT to a 35-25 win.

The Bills returned the favor in 2019 when Josh Allen passed for a touchdown and rushed for one in a 24-9 Buffalo win. Dwayne Haskins was Washington’s starting quarterback on that day when he completed 15 of 22 passes for 144 yards. It was a terrible offensive performance for Washington, outside of Adrian Peterson, who rushed for 108 yards.

Buffalo leads the all-time series, 9-6.

Sunday’s Week 3 battle is scheduled for a 1 p.m. ET kickoff in Orchard Park, New York.
