Wide Right (Buffalo Bills)

Wide Right or 47 wide right describes kicker Scott Norwood's missed 47-yard field goal attempt during Super Bowl XXV on January 27, 1991. With 8 seconds remaining in the game, Norwood's Buffalo Bills trailed the New York Giants by a single point. They chose to try a 47-yard field goal, which would win the game and the championship for the Bills. However, 47 yards was considered near the limit of Norwood's kicking range, particularly on a grass field, according to comments during the original game broadcast.ABC Sports commentary of Super Bowl XXV] The kick sailed right of the uprights and the field goal attempt failed. The New York Giants took possession with 4 seconds left and ran out the clock for a 20–19 victory, making this Super Bowl the closest ever.
