The 1982Buffalo Bills season was the 23rd season for the club and its 13th in the National Football League. Due to the 1982 NFL strike, the season was shortened to only nine games; the Bills' 4–5 record left them in the 9th spot in the AFC, thereby eliminating the Bills from the playoffs in the 16-team tournament format.
The Bills led the league in rushing in 1982, with 1,371 yards (152.3 per game) on the ground.
Linebacker Eugene Marve played linebacker for Buffalo for six seasons. Placekicker Gary Anderson went on to become the second-leading scorer in NFL history, although he did so with five other NFL teams, as he never played a regular season game for Buffalo.
