The Buffalo Bills defeated the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in what many are calling the team’s biggest win in a decade. Green Bay is considered a Super Bowl favorite. They had been riding a 5 game winning streak and were winners of 9 of their last 10. The Bills absolutely needed this game to keep hopes of ending their 14-year playoff drought alive.
They showed up in a big way. Aaron Rodgers, considered by many to be the league’s best quarterback, was harassed by the Buffalo defense all afternoon and suffered through a career worst day. On the game’s penultimate series the Packers had the ball deep in Buffalo territory down 6. They needed to score a touchdown in less than 2 minutes and with no time outs. Instead, Bills defensive end Mario Williams bumrushed Rodgers, sacked him and stripped the ball. The referee called a safety on the field then this happened:
This historic victory also marks my very first Vine video! Vine is designed to be used on your smartphone or tablet. It isn’t optimized to accept video recorded in other places, like mine was (thanks Flipcam). I learned that to import an edited video from programs like Adobe Premiere or Final Cut Pro one needs to output to 480 x 480 at 30 fps with mono sound. The video must then be imported into your phone’s camera/video roll (I did this by emailing it to myself) from which it can then be uploaded to Vine.
By the way, this video was shot at The Rockwell, a bar in Fells Point, Baltimore. It hosts the Charm City Bills Backers by exclusively airing their game on the big screen. It’s almost always a fun time.
