While chronicling quarterback Jim Kelly's battle with cancer, this documentary examines the American obsession with winning and losing through the spectrum of the early 90's Buffalo Bills teams that went to four straight Super Bowls and lost every time. They've been seen as football's ultimate "losers," who if circumstances were different, may have been remembered as the ultimate winners. Written by ESPN Films

30 for 30: Four Falls of Buffalo (2015)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

It should go without saying but here's yet another very good entry in the ESPN series, which has yet to deliver a bad episode. Is it possible that one of the greatest NFL teams ever is also one of the biggest losers in history? That is a debate that many people get into to as this film takes a look at the Buffalo Bills who with quarterback Jim Kelly went to four straight Super Bowls but ended up losing each of them and becoming a punchline for everyone in the country.

Kelly along with Marv Levy, Andre Reed, Steve Tasker, Don Beebe, Frank Weich, Bill Belichick, Troy Aikman and various others are interviewed as we take a look at those four magical seasons where the team always played their worst game in their last. The documentary does a very good job at showing how great the team was but of course it's unable to answer why they could never close to the door. The film also has a touching sequence dealing with kicker Scott Norwood who ended up missing a 47 yard field goal in that first Super Bowl. He gets a lot of interview time here and it's great to see him being honest about his feelings on that day even after all these years. If anything this film certainly shows how people should lose with grace.
