In the last week of the season, the 1-11-1 Bills could still mess things up by defeating the Oilers, but they leave nothing to chance by putting Ed Rutkowski at QB, generating 89 yards of total offense, the Bills throw two TDs to Miller Farr of the OIlers, and in the end they lose to Houston 35-6 but win the battle for OJ, 1-12-1 versus Philly's 2-12.


In Week 13, Ed Rutkowski fumbled the ball at the goal line late in the game against the Raiders. If he scores a TD, the Bills win that game, and the Falcons end up with the #1 overall pick.

Also, the Chiefs win the AFC West, and go to New York. Maybe The Guarantee doesn't happen.


Ed joked at the 2018 PFRA Conference that Ralph Wilson owed him a finders fee for being able to get the Juice.

After the Jets won at Shea against the Chiefs in 1964, KC won their next five trips there--including three going into what would have been the 68 AFL title game. So there was really no home-field advantage. The Raiders were 1-2-1 at Shea going into that 68 title game.
