THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
September 7, 2003 — BILLS OPEN SEASON WITH 31-0 ROUT OF VISITING PATRIOTS
The Bills shutout the Patriots 31-0 in the season opener at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Defensive newcomers Sam Adams, Lawyer Milloy (who had been released by the Patriots earlier that week) and Takeo Spikes sparked the win as the Bills posted a 21-0 halftime lead and coasted to victory.

QUOTES OF THE DAY
Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick
On what he sees from the Jets’ defense:
“A lot of the same stuff (with) a lot of the same personnel. They are going to get after you. They are going to play man coverage. They are going to disguise some stuff. It is a great challenge for us right away. It is one of the top defenses in the league every year and this year is no different.”
