THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
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.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
On being down a lot of players to injury:
They’re some spots that we’re OK on. They’re some spots that we’re struggling with; offensive line and defensive line that’s notable.  We’ll hopefully get some of those guys back here in the next two weeks.  We’ll have a full compliment to be able to play against Washington.  There will be somebody out, so somebody will have to step up.
