Super Bowl XXV

Thomas had an outstanding performance in Super Bowl XXV, rushing for 135 yards and a touchdown, while also catching 5 passes for 55 yards. He would have almost certainly won the Super Bowl MVP award, but his team lost the game 20-19 when kicker Scott Norwood missed a 47 yard field goal attempt with eight seconds remaining.

Some fans and sports writers, such as Sports Illustrated writer Paul Zimmerman[1], have argued that Thomas had the best performance of the game, so therefore he should have won the MVP award even though his team lost. He had far more yards and catches than New York Giants running back Ottis Anderson, who won the MVP, finishing the game with 102 rushing yards, 1 reception for 7 yards, and a touchdown. Also a player winning the Super Bowl MVP award on a losing team is not unprecedented; Chuck Howley accomplished this feat in Super Bowl V. Still, most feel Anderson won the award because he contributed to the time-consuming drives that kept Thomas and his teammates off the field for much of the game.

His performance in the Bills other posteseason games that year were also superb. He rushed for a total of 255 yards, caught 8 passes for 99 yards, and scored 3 touchdowns in their 2 playoff games prior to the Super Bowl


Super Bowl XXVI

Thomas is noted for a mishap in Super Bowl XXVI. Thomas has a pre-game ritual where he places his helmet at the 40-yard line prior to a game. Prior to the game, his helmet was moved in order for the stage to be set up for Harry Connick, Jr. to perform the national anthem. This caused Thomas to worry on where his helmet was, causing him to miss Buffalo's first two offensive plays (one was a botched running play to Kenneth Davis, the other was a weak run to Davis). He went on to gain just 13 rushing yards and a touchdown on 10 carries. He also caught 4 passes for 27 yards[1]. Date January 26, 1992 Stadium Hubert H.

Super Bowl XXVII

For the second year in a row, Thomas had a dismal performance in the Super Bowl. He scored the first points of the game for his team on a 2-yard touchdown run, but was limited to just 19 rushing yards on 11 carries and 4 receptions for 10 yards in Buffalo's 52-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He also committed a costly fumble that was converted into a Dallas touchdown.

However, it must be noted that Thomas was still recovering from a hip injury he suffered in the first game of the postseason. As a result, running back Kenneth Davis got the majority of carries in the game. Kenneth Earl Davis (born April 16, 1962 in Temple, Texas) is a former professional American football running back who played for the Green Bay Packers (1986-1988) and the Buffalo Bills (1989-1994) in the NFL. Before his NFL career, Davis played for Texas Christian University from 1982-1985. ...


Super Bowl XXVIII

Thomas had yet another disappointing Super Bowl performance in this game, which the Bills lost to the Cowboys 30-13. He scored the only touchdown of the game for his team, but was limited to just 37 rushing yards on 16 carries. He was a reliable target as a receiver out of the backfield, catching 7 passes for 52 yards but he lost 2 fumbles that led to 10 Dallas points. The second fumble came at the start of the second half, and it was returned for a game tying touchdown that swung the momentum for the Cowboys. Thomas's performance in the AFC title game prior to the Super Bowl was far better. In the Bills 30-13 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, he rushed for 186 yards, caught 2 passes for 22 yards, and scored 3 touchdowns.

On February 3, 2007, Thomas was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Thomas joined his former quarterback Jim Kelly, wide receiver James Lofton and head coach Marv Levy, in Canton. He also joins Barry Sanders, with whom he shared a backfield while at Oklahoma State University.

He is the President and CEO of Thurman Thomas Sports Training in Elma, New York. His oldest daughter, Olivia, attends school at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

He is the uncle of Western New York wrestling icons the Mariacher brothers.


Thomas is also famous for being absolutely unstoppable in the Nintendo game Tecmo Super Bowl. In many tournaments for the game, the Bills were highly sought after and often banned because Thurman's computerized counterpart was so good it gave the user of the Bills an unfair advantage. The same was true of the Oakland Raiders because of Bo Jackson. Neill Power, the Illinois State Tecmo Champion in 1995 coined the phrase "Ain't no stoppin' me.... Ain't no stoppin Thurman T!" as he ran in the winning touchdown in the tournament, (vs. Derek Schaul on ESPN) which caught on with game fans and remained popular for years.
