As we profiled on Buffalobills.com this morning, Rex Ryan has a strong won-loss record in season openers with a 5-1 mark as a head coach. If Ryan can emerge victorious from Buffalo’s Week 1 matchup with Indianapolis he’ll be in some select Bills coaching company.
With a win Rex Ryan can become the first Bills head coach to win his first Kickoff Weekend game. He can also become the second Bills head coach to win his first game joining Hall of Famer Marv Levy.
Levy’s first game was a win, but came in the middle of the 1986 season after he replaced Hank Bullough.
With a win, the Bills will also post their first home Kickoff Weekend game victory since September 7, 2008 when Buffalo beat Seattle 34-17.
