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.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
DT Marcell Dareus
Q: How do you think a 3-4 defense fits you?
A: “I love it. I like how (Coach Pettine) is going to come in and mix it up a little bit for us. We are going to play multiple fronts. We are not just zeroing in on one thing. I think it is a great new look for the Bills. Have got a great new system that I think they are implementing. I really cannot wait to get on in it.”
