Bills' Memory - I was there
Date: November 24, 1996
Location: Orchard Park. NY
Jim Kelly once said that no one could cover Steve Tasker as a wide receiver and he proved it that day.
Steve Tasker had the most productive offensive game of his career as a Wide Receiver as he racked up 160 yards on 6 catches with 2 touchdowns vs. NJ Jets. His 160 yards receiving vs. Jets was 8 more yards than he recorded in his first 10 seasons in the league.
Unfortunately his kamikaze catches made him a target for the Jets' back-field and he injured his knee in the game.
