Buffalo Bills Team History
The Bills began play as an original franchise of the American Football League (AFL) in 1960 and joined the NFL during the 1970 season. The Bills are the only team to win four consecutive conference championships and the only to lose four consecutive Super Bowl games. The team was owned by Ralph Wilson from their founding in 1960, until his death in 2014 at age 95. After his death, ownership was transferred to Terry and Kim Pegula, who currently possess the team. The Bills formerly had the longest active playoff droughts in any of the four major professional sports in North America: not qualifying for the playoffs from 1999 to 2017.
