THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
October 5, 1980 — BILLS UPSET CHARGERS, IMPROVE TO 5-0
The Bills rallied for 14 points in the fourth quarter to upset the Chargers 26-24 in San Diego in a battle of unbeatens. Detroit’s loss to Atlanta that day left the Bills as the only remaining undefeated team in the NFL.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick
On playing Philadelphia, who is a team of desperation:
Every week no matter what their records are in the NFL, everybody’s playing with the sense of desperation to win.  I think this week is no different.  It’s two NFL teams going at it and two teams that think they need to win.  That’s how we look at this game.
