THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
 
DB Charley Warner

 

November 7, 1965 CHARLEY WARNER HAS 102-YARD KICKOFF RETURN FOR TD
Defensive back Charley Warner’s record 102-yard kickoff return was the highlight of the Bills’ 23-7 victory over the Patriots in Boston.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
RB C.J. Spiller
Q: Are you confident when defenses do that you can handle that along with the offensive line and produce the yards?
A: Without a doubt. We have our guys getting back healthy. This is the best that I have felt since Week One. We just have to continue to work. We know it is not going to get any easier. We know if every game we have a great week of preparation like we did leading up to the Texans we will be fine. We know what every team presents.
