THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
October 7, 1990 — 24 POINTS IN FOURTH QTR KEY TO ANOTHER COMEBACK

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.
