Some history for Rex Sunday

Posted by Chris Brown on September 11, 2015 – 9:35 am

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.

Big Mike likes Kickoff Weekend

Posted by Chris Brown on September 7, 2014 – 10:35 am

Bills new WR Mike Williams is expected to be a frequent target of EJ Manuel this season. It would do Manuel good to look for Williams especially in the red zone in light of his Kickoff Weekend production.

Williams is tied for first among active players with touchdowns in four straight opening games. Green Bay WR Randall Cobb and Chicago RB Matt Forte are the others.

Overall Williams has 15 receptions for 144 yards and four touchdowns in his four career games on Kickoff Weekend.
