QUOTE OF THE DAY
DE Mario Williams
On DE Mark Anderson:
“He’s definitely a high motor guy,” Williams told Buffalobills.com. “He’s deceiving. You look at him and he’s not as big as your typical defensive end and he knows how to use leverage and his quickness to get around guys. That was the biggest thing. When I would watch him in one-on-ones, especially during third down situations he was able to make things happen with his quickness and being elusive.”

THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY…
April 5, 1974 – BILLS INTRODUCE NEW LOGO
The Bills announced a major change in the team’s logo for the 1974 season. Gone was the red standing buffalo that had been the team’s mark since 1962. It was replaced by a blue charging buffalo with a red streak.
