THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
CB/KR Terrence McGee
December 5, 2004 – McGEE MAKES HISTORY IN BILLS WIN
Terrence McGee made Bills history when he returned the opening kickoff 104 yards for a touchdown in the Bills’ 42-32 win over the Dolphins in Miami. McGee’s return was the longest in Bills history and it marked the first time Buffalo scored a touchdown on the opening kickoff.
QUOTES OF THE DAY
CEO Russ Brandon (via WGR 550)
“(Sunday’s) game is sold-out and will be live on television Sunday at one o’clock from Ralph Wilson Stadium.”
Q: How were you able to get it sold out?
A: I know we talked about this previously, but this game was moving pretty well for us heading into November. I have to give a lot of credit to obviously first and foremost our fans, but to our tickets sales staff who did a tremendous job. We have many community programs in place. You may or may not know that we are honoring high school football this week. A salute to high school football. We have some community programs tied in with them related to fundraisers. Once again, one of our great community partners Russ Salvatore stepped up and purchased the remaining seats and insured the blackout would be lifted. The game will be live on Sunday.
