THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
flutie flakes
October 18, 1998 — FLUTIE LEADS COMEBACK IN FIRST BILLS START
QB Doug Flutie made his first NFL start in nine years, and his 1-yard TD run with 13 seconds remaining capped a Bills comeback and gave Buffalo a 17-16 victory over Jacksonville.

QUOTES OF THE DAY
DOUG MARRONE, Buffalo Bills Head Coach on WGR 550
Q: (Thad Lewis) seemed pretty comfortable and it’s not like he was a rookie making his first start, he’s been in the league for a few years. I was just curious if there would be any jitters or any nerves being thrust in to the starting job without much notice?
A: No, I think he’s a player that obviously had one start prior to that and it’s a league that’s based on opportunity and you have to be ready. I think he’s been preparing himself for that because you need that opportunity to go out there and prove your worth in this league. It’s all about production, so he was ready for that. That’s a testament to him being a professional.
