Bills vs. Patriots: Four Current Players Have Beaten New England

The last time the Buffalo Bills beat the New England Patriots, I was a 17-year-old high school senior taking in a 31-0 beating at Ralph Wilson Stadium. 15 games between the Bills and Patriots have taken place since then, and the Patriots have won all of them. Chan Gailey may not think the streak is relevant to the game this Sunday, but it's certainly relevant to a fan base starved for a win over Bill Belichick.

Only four current Bills - a number many of you might find surprisingly high - were with Buffalo the last time the team beat New England, way back on September 7, 2003.

Rian Lindell and Brian Moorman were the team's kicker and punter at that point, just as they are today. The 31-0 win was Lindell's first game with the Bills as a free agent signing, while Moorman was in his third year with the team.

Chris Kelsay's first professional game was that 31-0 victory; he recorded three tackles as a left defensive end that day. Terrence McGee was also a rookie that season, but he was inactive for that Patriots win, making his NFL debut a week later in Jacksonville.

That's it. Those are the only Bills players that have experienced beating New England with Buffalo. Hopefully, that number rises dramatically by Sunday evening.
