The Buffalo Bills defeated the San Diego Chargers by a score of 20 to 7 for their first league championship; combined with the next season, they are the only two championships to have ever been won by a major league team based in the city of Buffalo. One of the game's most iconic plays was one known as the "hit heard 'round the world," when Bills linebacker Mike Stratton laid a particularly hard hit on Chargers wide receiver Keith Lincoln that injured Lincoln and forced him out of the game.
