A preview of Super Bowl XXV played on Dec. 15 at East Rutherford, N.J. -- which the Buffalo Bills won, 17-13 -- ended with Frank Reich playing quarterback for the Bills and Jeff Hostetler playing quarterback for the New York Giants. Bills starting quarterback Jim Kelly and Giants starter Phil Simms left with injuries.
Kelly sprained his left knee with 5 minutes, 30 seconds remaining in the first half. Simms left the game with 9:59 remaining in the third quarter, falling to the field in agony after spraining his foot. Kelly missed rest of the regular season but returned for postseason play. Simms' injury ended his season.
The Giants had already clinched the division title while the Bills were still only a game ahead in their division with two to play.
