"I still don't think I think the Bills will go 0-16. However, you'd have to be a fool to think there isn't a possibility of that happening if the Bills can't figure out a way to STOP people from physically pushing them around."

"On this day in 1969, Ridlehuber threw a 45-yard halfback-option pass to Haven Moses with 5:02 left to give the Bills a 23-16 win over the Boston Patriots. The victory came before a record War Memorial Stadium crowd of 46,201."

Reed says '85 team had hope, not despair - Sports - The Buffalo News
"Andre Reed looks at the state of the Buffalo Bills and his thoughts go back to his rookie year in 1985, the last time the team began a season 0-5. The big difference in the teams is Reed played with future Hall of Famer Bruce Smith and under the great leadership of Darryl Talley. There was a sense that team, which ended with a 2-14 record, faced better days. As for the current edition of the Bills, all Reed sees is despair."
