THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY

QUOTE OF THE DAY
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick
On how to approach the team’s three game road swing:
One game as a time for sure. Each game, the next three, they all present a different challenge. We’ve watched a little bit of the Cowboys. We’ve got some stuff we need to clean up and need to get better at. We made a lot of mistakes, stuff that we usually don’t do. There’s some stuff we need to clean up on our end and then we’ll get it going.
