THe 1982 Buffalo Bills season was the franchise's 23rd season, the 13th since the AFL-NFL Merger. A season which was shortened by a players' strike which condensed the season to nine games, the team went 4-5, missing the playoffs, as their record left them in the 9th spot in the AFC, thereby eliminating the Bills from the playoffs in the 16-team (8 playoff seeds in each conference) tournament format.

The Bills led the league in rushing in 1982, with 1,371 yards (152.3 per game) on the ground.[1]
