ON THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
August 8, 1964 — PETE GOGOLAK BECOMES FIRST SOCCER-STYLE KICKER IN PRO FOOTBALL
Rookie Pete Gogolak kicked a 57-yard FG in his first pro football game as the Bills beat the N.Y. Jets, 26-13 in their preseason opener at Tampa Stadium.

August 8, 1993 — BILLS PLAY IN BERLIN, GERMANY
The Bills and Vikings played an American Bowl preseason game in Olympic Stadium, Berlin, Germany before a crowd of 67,132. Minnesota defeated Buffalo, 20-6.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
NATHANIEL HACKETT, Offensive Coordinator
Q: With Stevie (Johnson) down, the focus has turned to the young receivers. What has been your impression so far on them?
A: “It’s going to be a constant evaluation. I think that with even the young guys and the older guys I think the way we do it, the way that Coach Hilliard does it, he’s doing an awesome job of getting a lot of guys in there at a lot of positions. Just so we can evaluate and we can see what they’re going to be capable to do out there and what routes they’re good at and so forth. So I thought Brad Smith had a very good day, number 10 (Robert Woods), 88 (Marquise Goodwin), 11 (T.J. Graham), all those guys they’ve really been thrown in to this. They’re going out there, we’re going fast. Those guys run a lot. I can’t say enough about that crew. It’s fun for a quarterback and a coordinator to be able to dial up another throw when you’ve got guys like that out there.”
