QUOTE FOR THE DAY
Bills quarterbacks coach George Cortez breaking down film of the Baltimore game on BuffaloBills.com “It showed when we do a good job protecting, and we have a good day running- I don’t know what we ended up rushing, but I know at the start of the game we did a fair job where they had to defend the whole field – and we stayed out of third-and-long and it showed what we can do in those situations where we give our playmakers chances to make plays.”

NOTES AND NUMBERS
Uniform Fact of the Day
After playing the 1960 and ’61 seasons in their original silver/gray and blue uniforms, the Bills made a switch prior to the 1962 regular season.  In the July 14, 1962 edition of the Buffalo Evening News beat writer Jack Horrigan reported that, “(Coach Lou) Saban decided to ‘brighten up’ the Bills new uniforms by adding scarlet and making more use of the white than the former silver-blue combination.”  The team first wore the new look for the 1962 regular season opener against the Oilers and though Houston won, 28-23, Evening News reporter Larry Felser described the new look as the “the Bills sharp new uniforms.”  The new look also saw the team’s silver helmet replaced by a white one with a red standing buffalo and a single red stripe down the center.
