Bills Head Coach Chan Gailey
On the special team’s performance:

“The kicking game as a whole, if Rian (Lindell) had not missed that short field goal, the kicking game as a whole played pretty well. We have to do a little bit more on our punt coverage when we are having to punt it from our own end and giving them a chance to return. But overall we played pretty well on special teams. I thought we were good there. We had some guys trying to make the football team and they took a good step forward in getting that done.”


Bills DE Mario Williams made his first appearance in his first Bills game last night.

Bills S George Wilson recovered a fumble that set-up a field goal for the team.

Bills rookie CB Ron Brooks had his first interception in his first Bills game last night.
