THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
July 30, 1960 — FIRST PRESEASON GAME
The Bills’ first-ever preseason game was played before 16,000 fans at Buffalo’s War Memorial Stadium. They lost to the Boston Patriots, 28-7 in the first game ever played in the American Football League.

QUOTE FOR THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey on how he feels about the team since last year – “Buddy (Nix) and I talk about this on a regular basis. We talk about what helps our football team. We feel we have upgraded our football team since the end of last year. That’s what you try to do; upgrade your football team every opportunity you get. From last year to this year, we think we have taken the steps to get that done. The one thing I noticed walking on the field today is that we look bigger. I don’t know if we’re stronger because I haven’t seen the players in the weight room. We are bigger and hopefully that translates into being stronger, more physical and harder to push around.”
