The Bills dominated the AFC in the early 1990s, advancing to the Super Bowl four straight years. But Scott Norwood’s field-goal miss in 1991 led to four straight Super Bowl losses.
"The Shark” won the British Open in 1986 but also led going into the final day at The Masters, U.S. Open and PGA Championship the same year, only to fall short in all three tournaments. Norman won another British Open (1993), but placed second twice more in The Masters, and another time apiece at the PGA and U.S. Open.
Like the Bills, the Vikings dominated the NFC in the 1970s. But in all four of their Super Bowl appearances (1970, 1974, 1975, 1977), they came up short to four different teams.
