THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
November 13, 1966 DUNAWAY LEADS THE WAY
Defensive tackle Jim Dunaway’s 72-yard touchdown return of a blocked field goal keyed a 14-point fourth quarter comeback. The Bills defeated the NY Jets 14-3 in front of a record of 45,738 at War Memorial Stadium.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
Q: What about this team makes you believe going down this stretch you can reel off three, four or five wins?
A: I look back at the last two games. To me, we have played probably the two best teams in the AFC the last two weeks and we have played with them. We moved the ball on Houston. We did not score touchdowns. That was the killer there; we did not score touchdowns. I thought the second half of last week we played a lot better defensively. We moved the football. I think that our football team has played fairly well. We did not win, but we played fairly well against two of the best teams in the AFC. So I think if we will continue to get better… if we do not then it will not matter that we played good against those two teams—or played better against those two teams. We did not play good. If you play good you should win. We played better against those two teams and I think if we will continue to get better that will help us with the future and the rest of our schedule.
