THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
October 7, 1990 — 24 POINTS IN FOURTH QTR KEY TO ANOTHER COMEBACK
For the second week in a row, the Bills rallied in spectacular fashion, scoring 24 points in a 6:03 span to beat the Los Angeles Raiders, 38-24 at Rich Stadium. The game was played on Sunday Night and broadcast on the TNT cable network.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
On the kickoff coverage unit and the job they’ve done:
They’re doing a great job.  The kickoff team has just been remarkable.  I think it really; the rule has helped us tremendously.  I don’t know the statistics but at one point we had more tackles inside the 20 than any other team.  I don’t know if we’re still there or not, but if we can keep doing that and make people go over 80, we’ll help our football team.
