The Buffalo Bills hold off the Miami Dolphins in the snow, winning 44-34 to reach the AFC Championship Game for the second time in three years. The Bills jumped out to a 20-3 lead, but Miami kept fighting back as both Dan Marino and Jim Kelly passed for over 300 yards with three touchdown passes. The Dolphins made too many mistakes, with three turnovers, while Thurman Thomas had two touchdowns, which made the difference in the game. The Bills would reach their first Super Bowl with a 51-3 win over the Los Angeles Raiders.
