BDC 9/24: Play 60 Challenge Kicks Off Today

Posted by Bills Daily Charge on September 24, 2013 – 2:37 pm

–Buffalo Bills players, representatives from BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York and the American Heart Association, Bills play-by-play man John Murphy and the Quizmaster Dennis George will come together at Kleinhans Music Hall in downtown Buffalo today at 10:00 AM to stress the importance of achieving at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day. The venue will host 2,500 students from participating target schools in the Buffalo Public, Orchard Park and East Aurora school districts. Bills players will provide students with healthy living tips, and Dennis George will follow with a healthy-themed quiz show.

–The Buffalo Bills announced yesterday that the team has placed DE Alex Carrington on Injured Reserve.

In one of the most memorable wins in franchise history, the Bills outgunned the Oilers 47-41 in overtime. Jim Kelly threw for 366 yards and 5 TDs, including the game-winner to Andre Reed for Buffalo’s first win in the Astrodome since 1966.

LB Kiko Alonso recorded his second interception of the season on Sunday vs. the Jets.  Alonso is the first Bills LB with an interception in consecutive games since Paul Posluszny in games 13-14 of 2009. He’s the first Bills rookie with an interception in back-to-back games since Jairus Byrd in games 5-9 in 2009. In addition,  Alonso has now recorded a takeaway in three straight games making him just the 10th Bill since 1988 to record such a streak.

DOUG MARRONE, Buffalo Bills head coach
Q: Can you talk about the play of Kiko Alonso so far?
A: I think you see someone that plays every snap of defense for us. He’s on the field the whole time. This is what I tried to tell the team today. Here we are we’re sitting at plus-two in turnovers. When you look around the league, there’s 12 teams that are plus-two. We all know what statistics are for; people who lose, but the other eleven teams are 28-4. They have an 88% chance of winning the game. Don’t get me wrong we have put the ball on the ground and we still have to work about our ball security. We’ve been fortunate to get it back. We are sitting at plus-two and we’re 1-2. We all know that these three past games could have gone either way. 0-3, 3-0 and 2-1. We are what we are and we’re 1-2. That’s why I go back to the third downs, the red zone, as being the things that we need to make sure we do a better job of because as long as everything else with the turnovers and stuff are going, we’ll have a chance to turn this thing around and turn these close games in to wins. Like I said before, I give the players a lot of credit for getting back to 20-20 in the game (Sunday) night and then we fell short in the end. We have to be smarter in what we do and do a better job, including myself, right from me all the way down to get us over that hump.
