13. Mike Stratton
Mike Stratton is a forgotten piece of Buffalo Bills Football lore, which is unfortunate as he was a dominating Linebacker during the 1960’s who in the 1964 AFL Championship game executed “The Hit Heard Round the World” when he stopped San Diego’s Keith Lincoln and took him out of the contest.  That hit changed the momentum of the game, which would lead to Buffalo’s first AFL Title.  Stratton would be named to the Second Team All Time AFL roster.
