Media Guide Options


The Buffalo Bills Media Relations Department provides media members with a couple of options for utilizing the
2012 Bills Media Guide.
Members are encouraged to use the Bills Interactive Only Media Guide, conveniently located on www.buffalobills.
com/media. This version of the guide utilizes todays technology to the fullest extent while providing members
with every element of information that is available in the 2012 Media Guide. Realizing that information in the
guide is constantly changing, the interactive media guide allows media to have the most updated information in
terms of player bios, team and individual records and statistical figures, just to mention a few. This year marks the
fifth consecutive season that the Bills have proudly provided media with this environmentally-friendly green
option.
While logged into the Bills media website, media members are strongly encouraged to also utilize the site as a
great resource for newspaper/online clips about the team and historical data as well.
The second media guide option for media members is the traditional hard copy. Due to the fact that player bios
are constantly changing throughout the season, they are not included in the hard copy. Media needing player bios
will need to view them on the media website as listed above or by contacting the Bills Media Relations department
for an updated printed version.

staff. We are constantly striving to make the site your first, and best, resource when covering the Bills.

He is the only original American Football
League owner who has kept his team in its
originating city and his impact on Western New
York is obvious. Since starting the Bills franchise in
1959, he has been a fixture in the Buffalo sports
scene, leading The Buffalo News to name him
the Top Sports Figure of the region in the past
millennium.

Ralph Wilsons professional football career
came full circle in 2009 as the charismatic leader of
the Bills was bestowed the highest honor in the NFL
with his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame
while his team, along with the American Football
League, celebrated its 50th Anniversary.


Mr. Wilson has been honored with numerous
awards which include the Pete Rozelle Award
from the Touchdown Club in New Orleans, the
NFL Alumnis Order of the Leather Helmet, the
Timmie Award from the Touchdown Club of
Washington D.C., the Maxwell Football Clubs
Francis J. (Reds) Bagnell Award for Contributions
to the Game of Football, and the inaugural Lamar
Hunt Award. Mr. Wilson was also awarded the
Sovereign Grand Commanders Medal of Honor by
the Masons and, along with four other NFL owners
who are veterans of WWII, was honored by The
National World War II Museum with the American
Spirit Award.

Ralph Wilsons love for the game of
professional football and its history was again
evident when in 2010 Mr. Wilson donated a $2.5
million gift to the Pro Football Hall of Fame to
support the museums Future 50 Expansion and
Renovation Project that will include the Ralph
Wilson, Jr. Pro Football Research and Preservation
Center. This much needed addition to the Hall

opened its doors with a special dedication on


August 5, 2012.

Ralph Wilsons presence in the community
transcends the game of football. The Bills are
known throughout the league as pioneers in the
area of youth football development and were the
first to establish a youth football stadium. He has
played an active role in obtaining matching grants
from the NFLs Grassroots program for Buffalo area
athletic fields totaling over $650,000 in recent
years. He also contributed significant funds for the
Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Athletic Field in Detroit as part of
the NFLs Youth Education Town Legacy gift during
Super Bowl XL.

Ralph Wilson, Jr.


Ralph Wilson, Jr. is respected league-wide as
an owner who is as passionate about his beloved
Buffalo Bills as he is the NFL. He is well regarded as
the conscience of the NFL due to his unwavering
commitment to speak his mind with the best
interests of both at heart.


Mr. Wilsons philanthropic arm reaches
various parts of the country with emphasis in the
Western New York region. His diverse charitable
endeavors include such benefactors as the food
banks of Buffalo and Rochester, the United Way
of Buffalo and Erie County, Sheas Performing Arts
Center, the Cancer Wellness Center and the Hospice
Foundation of WNY, where a wing of its main
building is named the Mary and Ralph Wilson, Jr.
Hospice Inpatient Unit. The Wilsons also provided
a lead gift for the Hospice Foundations capital
campaign to build a new Childrens Services Center.
Their gift served as the cornerstone for the building
which houses the Life Transition Center.

In 2011 The Ralph C. Wilson Foundation
joined nine local philanthropic partners to form
Roswell Park Cancer Institutes Circle of 10 to
support the building of RCPIs Clinical Sciences
Center. In the same year, the Ralph C. Wilson
Foundation established the Buffalo Bills Team
Physicians Fund with a one million dollar gift to
support the University at Buffalos Department
of Sports Medicine within the Department of
Orthopedics at the School of Medicine and
Biomedical Sciences. In 2010 Ralph and Mary
Wilson, also through the foundation, provided a
$1 million gift to the Kaleida Health Foundation to
support adult day care and home care in Western
New York.

For his tremendous charitable efforts in the
Buffalo area over the years, Mr. Wilson was named
the Seymour Knox III Humanitarian Award winner
in the spring of 2003 and in 2007 he was named
the Outstanding Philanthropist of the Year by the
WNY Chapter of the Association of Fundraising
Professionals. Also in 2007, he and his wife, Mary,
were named the Philanthropists of the Year by the
United Way of Buffalo and Erie County.

The Ralph Wilson Medical Research
Foundation was established in 1999 and has
contributed over $11 million to support medical
research. This foundation and the Ralph C. Wilson
Foundation, have provided significant support
to Buffalos Roswell Park Cancer Institute, the
Cleveland Clinic, The Mayo Clinic, The Miami Project
to Cure Paralysis, Wayne State University, the
Alzheimers Association-Greater Michigan Chapter,
the Boys & Girls Club of Southeastern Michigan and
a number of other worthy local initiatives.

Mr. Wilson is also a strong supporter
of education and has established scholarship
programs at various colleges including Canisius
College, SUNY Fredonia and St. John Fisher College.
The Bills President is also responsible for a building
on the SJFC campus that houses the College of
Education. He also endowed the University of
Virginias Jefferson Scholars Foundation with an
ongoing fund that annually provides candidates
from the Buffalo area with the ability to be
nominated for the Universitys four-year full-ride
merit-based scholarship program.

Ralph Wilson maintains a permanent
residence in Grosse Pointe Shores, MI with his wife,
Mary. An avid tennis fan and player for many years,
Mr. Wilson and his partner, Bob Sherman, were the
85 and over age division runner-up champions in
both the European Doubles and Austrian Doubles
Championship tournaments in the summer of
2005.


Brandon previously served as the teams Executive
Vice President of Business Operations in 2007-2008,
overseeing the teams vision and execution of all
business-related endeavors. He developed a strong
base of strategic business and community partners as
well as programs that have helped the team connect
with its fans and partners. Also during that time,
he and his staff established the second phase of the
teams regionalization process by partnering a five-year
deal with Rogers Communications to play a regular
season game in Toronto each year along with a couple
of preseason contests.

From January of 1999 through January 2006,
Brandon served as the teams Vice President of
Business Development and Marketing. He and his staff
have been credited with the development of the team
as a regional franchise and forming strategic alliances
with key business partners.

Brandons success in the sports business field has
been recognized with numerous awards and in 2001 he
was the recipient of Street and Smiths Sports Business
Journals Forty under 40 award.

In 1999, Brandon and his staff finalized the
foundation of the regionalization plan by relocating
Buffalo Bills Training Camp to St. John Fisher College
in Pittsford, New York. The new layout and location
provided the perfect blend of fan interaction and
training accommodations. In fact, many consider
the Bills to be the elite model for NFL training camps,
prompting Brandon to extend the partnership with the
school in the Spring of 2012 to keep the team at St.
John Fisher College for the foreseeable future.

Brandon joined the Bills in November of 1997
as Executive Director of Business Development
and Marketing after earning a World Series ring as
a member of the Florida Marlins front office. He
began his sports business career as a member of the
Rochester Red Wings (Triple A affiliate of the Baltimore
Orioles) serving in many capacities, including assistant
general manager.

The native of East Syracuse, New York, is also
actively involved in regional initiatives. He is a member
of the Advisory Board for the Department of Sports
Management at Syracuse University, a member of the
Board of Trustees at St. John Fisher College and serves
on the boards at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership and
the Buffalo Niagara Enterprise. He and his wife Amy
are involved in many charitable endeavors and had the
honor to serve as Co-Chairs of the Hunters Hope Gala
in 2008.

Brandon was a four-year letterman in baseball
and football at St. John Fisher College and graduated
with a degree in communications. He was inducted
into his alma maters Sports Hall of Fame in 2004. He
and Amy have three children, sons RJ and Jack, and
daughter, Grace. They reside in Williamsville, N.Y.

Russ Brandon


Bills Chief Executive Officer Russ Brandons
passion for the Buffalo Bills and the Western New York
region has served as his guiding compass while utilizing
his excellent skills in leadership and vision to direct the
franchise on a course for success since Ralph Wilson
entrusted him with the responsibility in January of
2010.

Brandons abilities are highly respected not only
on the local level, but certainly on a national scale and
within the league as well. A great illustration of his
talents lies in the honor bestowed upon him by NFL
Commissioner Roger Goodell in the spring of 2011
when he appointed Brandon to the NFLs Business
Ventures Committee, which is responsible for the
oversight of various businesses of the league, including
consumer products, sponsorship and marketing.

In directing the Bills day-to-day operations as the
Chief Operating Officer in 2008-09, and the addition
of General Manager to his title in the latter year,
Brandons reach extended from working on the Draft
and free agency to spearheading an effort to improve
the Bills game day experience for all fans. During the
two-year span, Brandon led the organization to its
only back-to-back years of 55,000-plus season ticket
sales while recording the second highest total in
team history in 2008 and the third highest figure in
2009, both contributing greatly to the viability of the
franchise.

The 2008 NFL Draft was the first with Brandon
at the helm, though he was a part of the Bills Draft/
free agent formula for a number of years with his
involvement in the football operations process that
included spearheading the selection and signing of
free agents in the post-draft hours. In that Draft the
Bills selected Rookie-of-the-Year candidate CB Leodis
McKelvin and WR Stevie Johnson.

Brandon was instrumental as GM in 2009 in
securing six current starting members on the Bills
roster through the Draft and free agency. The 09
Draft class brought to Buffalo second-round selection
DB Jairus Byrd, the runner-up in the AP Rookie-of-theYear voting, whose phenomenal rookie season was
highlighted with his selection to the Pro Bowl and
numerous all-rookie teams. The Bills Draft class also
included first-round selection center/guard Eric Wood
and guard Andy Levitre with the teams 2nd secondround pick.

Under Brandons watchful eye, the team made
key free agent acquisitions in 09, such as QB Ryan
Fitzpatrick, and, in what turned out to be a key decision,
extended the contract of RB Fred Jackson in May of that
year. But the Bills made the biggest headlines while
restoring fan excitement with the signing of free agent
WR Terrell Owens, who led all Bills receivers in receptions
and receiving yards while climbing into second place on
the NFLs all-time receptions list with 1,006.

Buddy Nix

Buddy Nix has never wavered from his goal


of leading the Bills back into the playoffs and he
remains just as focused in his third year of directing
the team as he did when he first accepted the job.
His career combination of scouting talent on the NFL
level and coaching on the collegiate and high school
levels serves him perfectly in his role as the Bills
General Manager and the direction he has brought
to the position has rejuvenated the Bills Football
Team.
After being named GM on December 31, 2009,
Nix worked diligently towards his first major decision
and 20 days later announced Chan Gailey as the
teams new head coach. Though the two men had
never worked previously together, their styles and
approach to the game are very similar. Both believe
success is accomplished by hard work, being prepared
and toughness. Its more about fundamentals than
being flashy and I think our team will reflect that
philosophy, Nix commented at the time.
Nixs approach to building the Bills back into
prominence centers around the Draft and he and the
team received high marks for the 2012 Draft. Nix and
the personnel staff were true to their philosophy of
selecting the highest player on their draft board, but
the selections also uniquely fit some need areas. CB
Stephon Gilmore was selected with the 10th overall
pick with OT Cordy Glenn selected in the second
round and speedy WR T.J. Graham in the third. In the
2011 Draft, Nix and the staff focused primarily on the
needs on defense by selecting six of the nine players
from that side of the ball. With the third overall pick,
the Bills chose dominant DT Marcell Dareus from
Alabama, who made an immediate impact up front
on the defense. DBs Aaron Williams (2nd pick) and
DaNorris Searcy (4th pick) saw significant playing time
in the secondary while LB Kelvin Sheppard (3rd pick)
has claimed the starting job at MLB. In the 2010 Draft,
the first with Nix as GM, the team chose RB C.J. Spiller
from Clemson with its first selection, the player that
some Draft evaluators and media felt was the best
overall player.
Nixs ability as a keen evaluator of talent also
led to the Bills adding players in free agency. The
team signed the most highly coveted defensive FA in
2012 in DE Mario Williams and then added DE Mark
Anderson to change the entire complexion of the
Bills defensive front line. Vince Young was added to
compete for the backup QB position and undrafted
FA WRs David Nelson, Donald Jones and Buffalonative Naaman Roosevelt were signed in previous
years and have played important roles.
Nix had rejoined the franchise earlier in 2009
as the National Scout. Prior to returning to Buffalo,

www.buffalobills.com/media

he had served seven seasons with the San Diego


Chargers, first as Director of Player Personnel from
2001 2002, where he oversaw both pro and college
scouting, and then as Assistant General ManagerDirector of Player Personnel from 2003 2007.
San Diego finished 1-15 in the year prior to
Nixs arrival and then made the playoffs four times
between 2001 and 2008 while capturing four AFC
West titles between 2004 and 2008. The Chargers
advanced to the AFC Championship game in 2007.
Nixs first tenure with the Bills was as a Southeast
region college scout from 1993 2000, where he
first worked with former Bills GM John Butler before
joining San Diego.
Nix has been honored many times for his
collegiate career, both as a coach and a player. He
was honored in 1999 with the Johnny Vaught Lifetime
Achievement Award by the All-American Football
Foundation, become a member of the University
of Tennessee at Chattanooga Hall of Fame in 2006,
a member of the Society of the Golden Key at the
University of West Alabama in 2007, and a member
of the Greater Chattanooga Area Sports Hall of
Fame Football in 2011, honoring contribution,
performance, character and integrity.
From 1984 1992, Nix was the head coach at the
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Prior to his
nine seasons at UTC, Nixs collegiate career included
assistant positions at Louisiana State University (1981
1983), Auburn (1976 1980), Southern Mississippi
(1972 1975), Livingston University (1970 1971)
and Carson Newman (1969). In 1971, Livingston won
the Division II National Championship while Nix was
the Defensive Coordinator.
Nixs coaching career began in 1961 as a graduate
assistant at the University of Alabama, the same
year the Crimson Tide finished 11-0 and defeated
Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl en route to a National
Championship. He later coached positions at
Anniston (1962 1964) and Eufaula (1964 1967)
High Schools in Alabama and Jonesboro High School
(1967 1969) in Georgia.
p PERSONAL
Nix was raised in Talladega, AL and attended
Talladega High before becoming a standout
linebacker and fullback at Livingston University
(the Universitys name has since been changed to
West Alabama University). He was inducted into
Livingstons Hall of Fame in 1983.
Buddy and his wife, Diann, have three children, Steve
(wife Sherry), Stan (wife Holi), and Stacey (husband
Allen). They also have six grandchildren, Dakota, Tyler,
Ana, Hope, Tucker and Sawyer.

NIXS CAREER GM/ ASST. GM NOTES

Nix, cont.

In 2012, Nix landed highly coveted DE Mario Williams and then added DE Mark Anderson and QB Vince Young.
During his three drafts as Buffalos GM, he selected top picks: RB C.J. Spiller, DT Marcell Dareus and
CB Stephon Gilmore.
Drafts during his tenure in san Diego produced eight Pro Bowlers: CB Antonio Cromartie (2008), C
Nick Hardwick (2007), C Vincent Jackson (2010), K Nate Kaeding (2007, 2010), LB Shawne Merriman
(2006-08), T Marcus McNeil (2007-08), S Hank Milligan (2006) and QB Philip Rivers (2007-08, 2010).
Three of his rookie free agents in San Diego TE Antonio Gates (2005-10), G Kris Dielman (2008-10) and
WR/ST Kassim Osgood (2007-08, 2010) also earned the honor to represent the AFC in the Pro Bowl.
During the 2004 draft, San Diego traded QB Eli Manning to the New York Giants in exchange for
QB Philip Rivers and third-round draft choice and a first-round draft choice in 04 (K Nate Kaeding, LB
Shawne Merriman) and a fifth-round choice in 2005. Three of the players acquired in the trade went
the Pro Bowl while with San Diego.

Gailey became the 15th head coach in Bills


history when he was named to the position on
January 19th, 2010. Now in his 18th season in the
NFL coaching ranks, Gailey is recognized leaguewide for his successful offenses, though he has
coached all three phases of the game during his
vast coaching career.
Gailey has over three decades of coaching
experience, including head coaching stints in
college, World League and the NFL. Gailey served
as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys from 199899, leading the Cowboys to playoff berths in each
season and compiling an 18-14 regular season
record. Gailey also has four stints as offensive
coordinator in the NFL with Denver (1989-90),
Pittsburgh (1996-97), Miami (2000-01) and Kansas
City (2008).
With the Cowboys in 1998, Gailey became
the first coach in NFC Eastern Division history to
lead his team to a perfect 8-0 record in division
play and a 10-6 overall record. Also in 1998, his
Dallas squad ranked in the NFLs top 10 in total
offense (eighth 340.6 ypg), rushing (eighth
125.9 ypg), scoring (ninth- 23.8 ppg) and passing
(ninth 214.8 ypg). He followed that with an
8-8 campaign in 1999 and his second consecutive
playoff appearance.
In his two seasons as the Cowboys head coach,
Dallas scored 37 rushing touchdowns, the fourthhighest total in the NFL over the two year timeframe.
Gaileys resume speaks for itself, he has spent
11 of his previous 17 NFL seasons as either a head
coach or offensive coordinator. During those
11 seasons, his teams have made the playoffs
seven times and boasted a 1,000-yard rusher on
seven different occasions. In total, he has made
playoff appearances in 11 of his 17 seasons in NFL
coaching. His resume also boasts four Super Bowl
berths, including one with Pittsburgh (XXX) and
three with Denver (XXI, XXII and XXIV).

Gailey served as the head coach at Georgia


Tech from 2002-07, becoming the first coach in
school history to lead the Yellow Jackets to bowl
appearance in his first six seasons. He compiled a
44-33 overall record and his squad averaged 199.3
rushing ypg, which led the Atlantic Coast Conference
in 2007 and finished third in the conference in total
offense with 384.9 ypg that season.

Chan Gailey

The Buffalo Bills continued to improve in 2011


under second year Head Coach Chan Gailey and
steadily worked towards their goal of making the
playoffs with victories that were described by
some as the most exciting and impressive wins in
the past 15 years.

In 2006, the Yellow Jackets featured the 2006


Biletnikoff Award winner and number two overall
draft pick in the 2007 NFL Draft in WR Calvin
Johnson (Detroit). The ACC Player of the Year
caught 78 passes for a single-season record 1,202
yards with 15 touchdown receptions, tying for
second-most in the country.
A total of 46 Yellow Jackets coached by Gailey
in his six seasons at Georgia Tech were either
selected in the NFLs annual Draft Selection or were
signed to a free-agent contract with an NFL team.
In 2008, Gailey returned to the NFL as the
offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs had a duo of 1,000-yard receivers - TE
Tony Gonzalez and WR Dwayne Bowe - marking
the third time in team history.
His coaching experience is so wide-ranging
that it includes stints coaching defense and
special teams, in addition to his success on the
offensive side of the ball. In fact, he owns the
distinction of serving as both a head coach and
defensive coordinator on the collegiate level,
as well as stints as a head coach and offensive
coordinator in the NFL ranks.
Gailey began his NFL career as an assistant
with the Denver Broncos from 1985-90 under
head coach Dan Reeves. He served as offensive
coordinator/wide receivers coach (1989-90),
quarterbacks/wide receivers coach (1988),
tight ends/special teams coach (1986-87) and
defensive assistant/special teams coach (1985).
During his six years in Denver, the Broncos
developed into one of the leagues most potent
passing attacks centering around Hall of Fame
signal-caller John Elway. With Gailey as the
teams offensive coordinator/wide receivers
coach in 1989, the Broncos advanced to Super
Bowl XXIV.

Gailey, cont.

In 1991, Gailey left the NFL to become the head


coach of the Birmingham Fire of the World League
of American Football, where his team made the
playoffs in both years with him at the helm.
After a one-year stint as the head coach at
Samford University, Gailey returned to the NFL as
wide receivers coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers
in 1994-95, before being promoted to offensive
coordinator (1996-97). During that four-year run
alongside head coach Bill Cowher, the Steelers won
four straight AFC Central crowns, appeared in three
AFC Championship Games and earned a berth in
Super Bowl XXX following the 1995 campaign.
During his tenure in Pittsburgh, he was
credited with implementing the Slash offense
that featured the skills of multi-talented QB
Kordell Stewart. In 1996, Gaileys first season as
offensive coordinator, Pittsburgh ranked second
in the NFL in rushing, averaging 143.7 ypg. The
following season the Steelers led the league in
rushing with 154.9 ypg on the ground. During the
1997 season, Pittsburgh ranked sixth in the NFL

Gailey as his offensive coordinator. Bettis tallied

2011 Review

September 11, 2011 Arrowhead Stadium 68,755


The Buffalo Bills played their first game of the regular season Sunday in Kansas City. The result was a 41-7 win
against the Kansas City Chiefs in front of a crowd of 68,755 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

Buffalo got off to the fast start that they were hoping for. Kansas City kick returner, RB Dexter McCluster, fumbled the opening kickoff return which was recovered by Bills rookie LB Kelvin Sheppard and gave Buffalo the perfect opportunity to strike first. After just 5 plays, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a 4 yard touchdown
pass to TE Scott Chandler for the early 7-0 lead. The Bills offense kept the momentum going and moved the
ball well down the field throughout the first quarter. The Bills extended their lead, 14-0, with another QB
Ryan Fitzpatrick touchdown pass to WR Stevie Johnson. WR Stevie Johnson extended to his fullest to make
the leaping grab against a Chiefs defender.

QB Matt Cassel and the Chiefs had a rough start against the Bills defense. QB Matt Cassel threw for
119 yards with one touchdown and one interception. QB Matt Cassel and the Chiefs offense never got into
a rhythm, like they did so well last year. The Bills rush defense, which ranked last in the league last year, held
the two biggest running threats, RB Jamaal Charles and RB Dexter McCluster to just 98 yards. The Bills were
able to create some pressure and sack QB Matt Cassel twice. It seems apparent that new comers such as;
DE Marcell Dareus, LB Nick Barnett, and LB Shawne Merriman have made an immediate impact.Bills RB Fred
Jackson started off the 2011 season on the right foot. He was able to tally his first 100 yard rushing game of
the season. RB Fred Jackson rushed for 112 yards on 20 attempts. Jackson fought for every yard he gained by
dragging the Kansas City defense right down the field. The second part of the Bills RB duo, C.J. Spiller, also had
a productive day by scoring a 9 yard touchdown to put the game away for the Bills, 41-7 in the fourth quarter.

Buffalos offense was the big story of the day. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 208 yards with four touchdowns. His favorite receiver of the day was TE Scott Chandler. TE Scott Chandler was thrown to five times
and had two touchdowns. These marked the first of his NFL career. WR Stevie Johnson and WR David Nelson
had an equally productive game, each catching the ball four times for 66 yards. QB Brad Smith lined up in the
wild cat position for the first time with the Bills this season and was able to convert more than once on third
down. Buffalos offense seemed to have found what they were missing all of last season.

PATRIOTS 31, BILLS 34

September 25, 2011 Ralph Wilson Stadium 68,174

2011 Review

The Buffalo Bills played their second consecutive game at home and the result was a 34-31 comeback
win against the New England Patriots in front of a crowd of 68,174 at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard
Park, New York. This was the first time the Bills have beaten the Patriots since 2003 when they beat them
31-0 in their home opener.

Just like last week the Bills had to come back from being down early and make it yet another thrilling
game for the home town fans. QB Tom Brady started off just where he left off last week. He marched right
down the field to give the Patriots the early 7-0 lead. He and WR Wes Welker made it look easy as they
hooked up all day long. Welker ended the day with 217 yards and two touchdowns. Another favorite receiver of Brady was TE Rob Gronkowski, who grew up in Williamsville, NY, a suburb of Buffalo. Gronkowski
had another 100-yard receiving day and added two more touchdowns for the season. Other than Welker
and Gronkowski, the Bills were able to keep the Patriots under control and keep them off the field just long
enough. Throughout the first half it was all Patriots. They quickly went up 21-0 with six minutes left in the
second quarter, but just like last week the Bills kept their heads up and climbed right back in it.
The Buffalo Bills, for the second straight week, came back in the second half to win the game. The first
drive of the second half for the Bills was a quick three and out, and was a failed attempt at trying to get
the momentum back. On Tom Bradys first pass of the second half he threw an interception to CB Leodis
McKelvin. This set up a three yard touchdown pass to wide open TE Scott Chandler. This cut the lead
down to just four points. The next two Patriots drives, the Bills were able to hold them to just three points.
Trying to get their big lead back, Brady threw short to Gronkowski and S George Wilson was able to tip it to
himself and take the interception. This was the third interception that led to points. RB Fred Jackson ran up
the middle for a one yard touchdown to tie the game 24-24. Just a mere 24 seconds later, Bills DB Drayton
Florence intercepted Brady in New England territory and ran it back for a 27-yard touchdown return. This
touchdown gave the Bills the lasting momentum that would indeed favor them.

With 3:25 left on the clock the game was tied 31-31. The Bills were able to drive down the field on
what looked like to be a 39 touchdown run by Fred Jackson. The play was reviewed and ruled that he was
down at the one yard line. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the rest of the offense were able to kneel the ball down
and run the clock down to three seconds. K Rian Lindell kicked the winning field goal as time expired to
beat the New England Patriots and take sole possession of first place in the AFC East.

2011 Review

The Buffalo Bills played their second game away from Orchard Park and it ended up becoming their
first loss of the 2011 season. The Cincinnati Bengals came away with a 23-20 in front of their home crowd of
41,142 at Paul Brown Stadium. Defense was the name of the game and favored Cincinnati in the end.

For the first time this year, the Bills started the game with the ball and were hoping to jump out to
an early lead, unlike the past two weeks. As of late, the Bills offense has not been able to start quick. He
finished the day with 298 yards on 18 completions and ran for one touchdown. The Bengals got the 3-0
lead early but it was quickly responded with a K Rian Lindell kick to tie it up 3-3. The Bills secondary also responded with two 2nd quarter interceptions, and one returned for a TD. The ball bounced off of a Bengals
receivers legs right into the arms of Bryan Scott. He recorded his first touchdown of his career on a 43 yard
INT return.

The Bills run game has been the big story of the season so far. RB Fred Jackson has been unstoppable and has been running with purpose. The Bengals were able to hold Jackson to just 66 yards and one
touchdown, which gave Buffalo a 17-3 lead at the half. The other Bills RB C.J. Spiller was used more as a
wide out than in the backfield. When he was called for a play he came through and made some crucial runs.
He finished the game with 12 yards rushing and 9 receiving yards. The Cincinnati defense was ranked third
in the NFL before this game and they showed it by slowing down the NFLs third rank offense in the Buffalo
Bills.

Coming out for the second half, the momentum quickly swung to the side of the Bengals, which
started their second half comeback. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick didnt have the kind of day in the air that he has
had the first three weeks. Fitzpatrick finished the day with 199 yards on 20 completions and threw no
touchdowns for the first time this season. Fitzpatrick saw a lot of pressure for the first time this season.
There was no late game comeback in store for the Bills this game, but instead for the Bengals. The Bengals
scored a late fourth quarter touchdown on Daltons first career rushing touchdown that tied up the score.
The Bills had a chance to march down the field for the go ahead score but a questionable incompletion call
against WR Stevie Johnson made the Bills punt the ball to the Bengals with 1:58 left. The Bengals kicked the
winning field goal as time expired.

2011 Review

October 9, 2011 Ralph Wilson Stadium 69,803


The Buffalo Bills played at home in front of a crowd of 69, 803. It was their first game back after suffering their first loss of the season in Cincinnati. The Bills bounced back with a high scoring affair to move to 3-0
at home. The final score was 31-24 and improved the Bills record to an impressive 4-1.

Bills RB Fred Jackson had his third 100 yard rushing performance on the season. He carried the ball 26
times for 111 yards and also had one touchdown. The Bills focus was to use the run game against the Eagles
defense and give Jackson the load to lead the Bills to victory. Along with his performance in the run game,
he was the Bills leading receiver with six receptions for 85 yards and a 14.2 yard reception average. For the
first time at home the Bills were able to establish a lead and never let it go. On the Bills first drive of the
game Jackson was the leading man and scored on a five yard touchdown run to get the Bills up 7-0. While
Jackson had his running game in tune the Bills defense also had a strong connection going with the ball. On
the Eagles opening drive, QB Michael Vick had his passed tipped by LB A. Carrington and into the arms of CB
Reggie Corner. Interceptions and Fred Jackson ended up being the big stories of the day.

The Bills defense gave up 489 total net yards and still found a way to win the game. The Bills defense
knows how to get to the ball and they showed that with five turnovers on the day. S George Wilson had his
third interception of the season in as many games. He is the first Bills player to have a three game interception streak since S J. Byrd in 2009. One of the game changing moments was a 31 yard interception return by
LB Nick Barnett. This was the second Bills score in 17 seconds and put the Bills up 21-7. That gave the Bills
their first three-game streak with interceptions returned for touchdowns since a four-game streak in 1960.
Barnett had his best game as a Bill with three total tackles, two interceptions, and two pass deflections.
Barnett made a key late fourth quarter interception that stopped the Eagles from making a game tying drive.

All in all it was a complete 60 minute game for the Bills. The offense had 331 total net yards. QB Ryan
Fitzpatrick threw for 193 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Fitzpatrick also was the voice that
sealed the victory with 1:23 left in the game. On fourth down the Bills got someone on the Eagles line to
jump offsides to give the Bills a first down and let them run the clock out. The Bills also got seven different
receivers involved and WR Naaman Roosevelt had his best game of the season with five catches for 41 yards.
The Bills defense was able to win the turnover battle with four interceptions and one fumble recovery. And
special teams played a big part in field position. P Brian Moorman had a long punt of 64 yards and was able
to pin a crucial punt at the Eagles two-yard line. The Bills didnt let the lead slip away and was able to add
another W because of it.

2011 Review

The Buffalo Bills lost their second game of the season by a score of 24-27. It was their second
consecutive game against a team from the NFC East. They played in front of a full house of 79,243 at
Metlife Stadium. They now go into the bye week with a 4-2 record and will face their third NFC East team,
Washington, when they return in week eight.

The Bills offense got off to a fast start and was able to create big plays. With the Giants getting a quick
7-0 lead, Buffalo quickly cut right into that. On the Bills first play of their second drive, RB Fred Jackson ran
right up the middle for an 80 yard touchdown. He weaved his way through the defense and scored his sixth
touchdown of the season. He also had his fourth 100-yard rushing performance on the season and added
another 47 yards receiving. WR Naaman Roosevelt also let his name be heard with a 60 yard touchdown
catch and run to get the Bills up 14-7. It was his first career touchdown and a career long reception. He
threw two interceptions and was sacked a season high three times. Fitzpatrick did throw for two touchdowns and completed 21 passes for 244 yards.

The Bills defense gave up another 400 yard game to their opponent. RB A. Bradshaw had three
rushing touchdowns and added 104 yards on the ground and another 26 yards receiving. WR Hakeem
Nicks had a team high 96 yards on four receptions. TE Jake Ballard had one of his best games of the season
with 81 yards and an average of 16.2 yards a catch. QB Eli Manning did not throw a touchdown pass but
more importantly he didnt throw an interception against a very dangerous take-a-way team. Manning
completed the day with 21 completions for 292 yards.

Both the Bills and the Giants go into their Bye week. The Bills had many key players out with injuries
for this game; NT Kyle Williams, LB Shawne Merriman, LB Chris Kelsay, T Demetrius Bell and WR Donald
Jones. Also, rookie T Chris Hairston left the game with an ankle injury which leaves the offensive line very
thin. This is a good time for the Bye week as the Bills will need to bounce back against the Redskins to avoid
their first two game losing streak of the season.

2011 Review

October 30, 2011 Rogers Centre 51,579



The Buffalo Bills continued their Toronto series with their fourth regular season game played in Toronto
and won for the first time at the Rogers Centre. The Bills not only won the game but also posted their first
shutout since 2006. The Bills dominated in all aspects of the game and came out with a 23-0 victory over the
Redskins. They are now 5-2 on the season and recaptured first place in the AFC East.

The Bills wanted to get an early lead and thats exactly what they did. TE Scott Chandler scored his 5th
and 6th touchdowns of the season which ties him for most touchdowns in a season by a tight end in Bills
history. His first score was a 20-yard pass from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick that put the Bills up 7-0. Fitzpatrick had
another solid effort with 21 completions for 262 yards and two touchdowns. RB Fred Jackson had his fifth
100-yard rushing game this season and also third in a row. He rushed for 120 yards and also was the Bills leading receiver with 74 yards. He is the first running back since Thurman Thomas (1994) to post three consecutive
100-yard games.

While the offense did its job, the defense was the big story of the day. Going into the game the defense
had only four sacks, the fewest in the league. The Bills not only got pressure on Redskins QB John Beck but
were able to sack him nine times. DE Marcell Dareus filled in at NT for Kyle Williams and was rewarded with
2.5 sacks. The Bills also got back to their turnover ways. SS George Wilson added another interception to his
total and also had nine total tackles. FS Jairus Byrd got his first interception and sack of the season. The Redskins had 178 total yards and were held to only only allowed 26 rushing yards. Defensive players also helped
out on special teams. For the second straight game the Bills blocked a field goal. LB Spencer Johnson was the
one to get his hand on it.

Redskins QB John Beck had a rough outing and seemed to be on the ground for most of the game. He
was sacked nine times and threw two interceptions. He finished the day with 20 completions for 208 yards.
The Redskins never got in a rhythm to create any scoring chances. They had a chance to break the shutout at
the end of the fourth quarter but were stopped by the Bills on fourth down. The Bills got the ball back with 47
seconds left and took a knee to get their fifth victory on the season.

2011 Review


The Buffalo Bills were back at Ralph Wilson Stadium for the first time in a month facing the New York Jets.
The Jets were coming in winless on the road while the Bills were undefeated at home. The tides turned as the Jets
won the game 27-11 in front of 70,133 fans in Orchard Park, NY.

The first half was a defensive battle that only saw three points go up on the score board. Early in the first
quarter the Jets sustained a ten minute drive to bring them down to the Bills seven yard line. QB Mark Sanchez
threw his pass right into the arms of S Jairus Byrd who then brought it out of the end zone to the 21 yard line. This
was Byrds second consecutive game with an interception. The rest of the half was back and forth with numerous
turnovers. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two interceptions in the first half, while New York had two turnovers as well.

The Jets offense got rolling in the second half and put up 17 points in the third quarter to put the game
away. Sanchez ended the day 20-28 for 230 yards. He had his highest completion percentage of the season with
71.4%. Jets RB Shonn Greene carried the ball 19 times for 76 yards and their top receiver was Plaxico Burress who
had five catches for 79 yards. Jets RBs LaDainian Tomlinson and John Conner both scored a rushing touchdown.

The Bills offense has been effective all season until they faced the Jets on Sunday. The Jets held RB Fred Jackson to a game-high 82 yards and no touchdowns. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick only completed 15 of his 31 pass attempts.
There was never a rhythm established and the Bills produced their fewest points scored so far this season with 11.
WR Stevie Johnson was the Bills top receiver with 84 yards and a long of 52 yards. WR David Nelson had the lone
touchdown for the Bills.

The Bills and Jets are now tied at 5-3 in the AFC East division and will meet again in three weeks. The Bills will
now go on the road for three straight weeks before returning back to Ralph Wilson Stadium on December 4th.

2011 Review

November 13, 2011 Cowboys Stadium 85,157



The Buffalo Bills started a three game road trip in Dallas at Cowboys Stadium. The Bills did not start
the road trip like they wanted, losing 44-7. This was the first time this season that the Bills have lost two
straight and now sit at 5-4 and tied for second in the AFC East.

From opening kickoff the Cowboys set the tone for the game and never looked back. On the Cowboys
first drive of the game QB Tony Romo completed all four pass attempts for 74 yards. He finished the day
23 of 26 for 270 yards and no interceptions. He also got help from his rookie RB DeMarco Murray. Murray
rushed for 135 yards and added one touchdown. WR Laurent Robinson had a huge day with three receptions for 73 yards and two touchdowns, and had a 24.3 reception average. Robinson caught a 58 yard pass
from Tony Romo in the second quarter to put the Cowboys up 21-0. The Cowboys had seven different
receivers who caught at least one catch.

The Bills offense, for the second straight week, never got a rhythm going and fell behind early and
fast. Before they knew it they were down 21-0 and had to try and strike fast. The Bills only scoring drive was
a 7 play 80 yard drive that ended with a WR David Nelson touchdown. RB Fred Jackson, week after week,
is the Bills one constant. Jackson ran for 114 yards, averaging 8.8 yards per carry. This was Jacksons sixth
100-yard rushing game this season. WR Donald Jones had the biggest day receiving wise with 6 receptions
for 51 yards and had a long of 18 yards. Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick finished the day 20-31 for 146 yards. Fitzpatrick threw three interceptions on the day and had one returned for a touchdown. Fitzpatrick was sacked
only once by DE DeMarcus Ware on the very first play.

Multiple players did not finish the game and have been added to the long list of injuries for the Bills.
C Eric Wood sustained a right knee injury. Also, WR Stevie Johnson left the game with a shoulder injury, FS
George Wilson did not return with a stinger, and LB Chris White was taken off on a cart with a knee injury.
The Bills look to get back to win column next week in Miami.

The Buffalo Bills lost their third straight game by a score of 35-8 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. The
Bills now sit at 5-5 and are tied for second in the AFC East. This was the first meeting of the season between these
teams. They meet next in Buffalo on December 18th.

For the third straight game Buffalo could not get any kind of momentum going and got behind early. The
first drive of the game saw Buffalo go 70 yards in nine plays and create some offensive movement. They kicked
a 30-yard field goal to go up 3-0, which was their only lead of the game. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 20-39 for 209
yards. He also threw two interceptions on the day, now making it 14 on the year. RB Fred Jackson never got going
and ran for a season low 17 yards. TE Scott Chandler had another impressive game and led the Buffalo receiving
core with a career-high 71 yards. Jackson had 5 receptions for 50 yards and WR Brad Smith had 35 yards on three
catches which was his best receiving game of the season.

The Dolphins had the exact opposite day of the Bills. They won their third straight game and had a break
out on offense. QB Matt Moore went 14-20 for 160 yards on the day and also added three touchdown passes
with no interceptions. RBs Daniel Thomas and Reggie Bush combined for 82 yards. Bush had the one rushing
touchdown on the day. Charles Clay, Devone Bess, and Anthony Fasano all caught touchdown passes. Clay led
Miamis receivers with four receptions for 69 yards with a long of 46 yards.

Defensively, the Bills held the Dolphins to 242 total yards and did not allow a 100-yard rusher or receiver.
LB Nick Barnett had the lone sack on the day and added seven total tackles. Rookie S DaNorris Searcy, who was
filling in for S George Wilson, led the team with 11 total tackles. Another rookie who stepped up was LB Kelvin
Sheppard; he had seven total tackles and recorded the Bills first safety since 2007.

The Bills look to get out of their losing ways against their next opponent, the New York Jets. The Bills and
Jets have the same record, 5-5, and are tied for second place in the AFC East.

offensive threat and had another career day with six catches for 50 yards.

Buffalos defense didnt give up a 100-yard receiver or rusher but allowed QB Mark Sanchez to throw
for four touchdowns. Sanchez completed 17 of 35 for 180 yards, and did throw an interception to CB Drayton
Florence. The Jets biggest receiving threat was TE Dustin Keller. Keller had four receptions for 61 yards and
two touchdowns. WR Plexico Burress caught a touchdown pass and added 54 yards on the day. WR Santonio

2011 Review


The Buffalo Bills played at home for the first time since playing the Jets on November 6. That game
started a losing streak that has now hit five games with a 17-23 loss to the Titans.

Bills RB CJ Spiller started again at running back for the injured Fred Jackson. Spiller had his most
productive game this season, and in his career. Spiller ran for 83 yards on 14 attempts, and scored his
second touchdown of the season. Spillers touchdown came on a 35 yard run. The Titans knocked the
ball loose from Spiller and ended up bouncing into the end zone. The play was ruled a touchback and
that Spiller had recovered the ball out of bounds. The Bills challenged the ruling and it was reversed to
a Spiller touchdown. Spiller also had 19 receiving yards on the day. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick had a productive
day with 288 yards passing on 29 completions. Fitzpatricks lone touchdown pass came late in the fourth
quarter to WR Stevie Johnson. Johnson had 52 yards on five receptions. WR Brad Smith was the Bills top
receiver with 72 yards.

The Titans main offensive weapon, RB Chris Johnson, had another good day running for 153 yards
and two touchdowns including a 48-yard touchdown run down the sideline. QB Matt Hasselbeck had a
quiet day throwing for 140 yards on 16 completions with no touchdown passes. WR Damian Williams
and WR Nate Washington were the Titans most productive receivers combining for 102 yards. Titans K
Rob Bironas was perfect in the clutch and made all three field goal tries.

The Bills go back on the road next Sunday to San Diego to face the struggling Chargers. The Bills will
look to end their losing streak and try and finish this season on a strong note.

2011 Review

December 11, 2011 Qualcomm Stadium 62,494



The Chargers and Bills played in front of a crowd of 62,494 at Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego winning by a final score of 37-10. The Bills sit in third place in AFC East and have three games left this season.

The Bills had trouble starting off fast again and fell behind early. The Chargers were led by the
resurgence of QB Philip Rivers. Rivers threw for 240 yards and added three touchdowns. Two of those
went to all-pro TE Antonio Gates. On the first drive of the game Rivers went 9-9 for 80 yards and a touchdown pass to Gates for the early lead. Gates finished the day with seven receptions for 68 yards. Rivers
hit six different receivers on the day. WR Vincent Jackson was the Chargers second leading receiver with
five receptions for 55 yards.

The Chargers defense had three interceptions including one that was returned for a touchdown.
DB Steven Gregory intercepted a Ryan Fitzpatrick pass for a 26-yard pick six. Eric Weddle and Marcus Gilchrist were the other San Diego players with interceptions. With the interceptions helping the Chargers
offense field position, P Mike Scifres helped the defense by putting two of his three punts inside the 20.
Scifres had a long punt of 58 yards.

The Bills offense continues to struggle and only had one scoring drive on the day. The drive led to a
Dave Rayner 37 yard field goal. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 176 yards on 13 completions. He also threw
two interceptions. On this day Fitzpatrick became the second QB in Bills history to throw for 3,000+ yards
in two straight seasons. WR Stevie Johnson had his first 100-yard receiving game of the season and the
fourth of his career. Johnson had four receptions for 116 yards. He had a long catch and run for 53 yards.
WR Derek Hagan played his first game in a Bills uniform and finished the day with 28 yards.

The Bills return home next weekend to play division rival Miami. They look to snap a six game skid
and try and finish the season with a .500 record.

BRONCOS 14, BILLS 40

2011 Review

December 24, 2011 Ralph Wilson Stadium 45,112



The Buffalo Bills ended a seven game losing streak by beating the Broncos 40-14. This was the Bills
final home game of the season and improved their record to 6-9.

One of the biggest stories of the day was the Bills defense. The Bills got back to their old ways
and created four turnovers that gave them a clear advantage to win the game. Other than two Broncos
touchdown drives, the Broncos offense was held in check. QB Tim Tebow and RB Willis McGahee
combined for 98 yards rushing, with Tebow scoring the lone rushing touchdown on the day. Tebow completed 13 of his 30 passes for 185 yards and one touchdown. WR Demaryius Thomas was the Broncos
leading receiver with 76 yards. WR Daniel Fells scored the other Broncos touchdown and finished the
day with two catches for 22 yards. Tebows four interceptions were picked off by four different players. S
Jairus Byrd and DE Spencer Johnson both returned their turnovers for touchdowns. Their pick-sixs were
19 seconds apart. Also, Rookie DBs Justin Rogers and Aaron Williams both got their first interceptions of
their career.

QB Ryan Fitzpatrick got help from RB CJ Spiller on the offensive side of the ball. Spiller had his
first 100-yard rushing game of his career. He finished the day with 111 yards on 16 attempts and one
touchdown. He also had 27 yards receiving. Fitzpatrick went 15-27 for 196 yards with a long of 55 yards.
WR Stevie Johnson finished with 92 yards on four receptions. His biggest catch of the day was a 55-yard
catch and run.

The Bills special teams had their most productive day of the season. CB Leodis McKelvin set a Bills
record with most punt return yards in a game. He finished the game with 135 yards on three returns.
One of his returns was an 80-yard touchdown. DB Justin Rogers had another impressive day with kickoff
returns. He returned three kickoffs for 101 yards and had a long return of 40 yards.

2011 Review


The Buffalo Bills played their final game of the 2011 season against New England at Gillette
Stadium. The Patriots came out on top with a final score of 21-49. The Bills finished the season with a
6-10 record and tied for third in the AFC East.

The Bills started fast and played their best quarter of the season. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 307
yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions. Fitzpatrick got help from both of his running backs as
each scored a touchdown. RB Tashard Choice got in the end zone first on a four-yard run to put the Bills
up 7-0. RB CJ Spiller had a 15-yard catch and run touchdown. WR Stevie Johnson was the other Bill to get
into the end zone on an 18-yard pass from Fitzpatrick. Johnson finished the day with 40 yards receiving
which makes him the first wide receiver in Bills history to catch for 1,000 yards in back to back seasons.
Another receiver to have a big day was Derek Hagan. He had his best day in a Bills uniform with seven
receptions for 89 yards. Fitzpatrick threw to nine different receivers and seven of those were at yards in
the double digits.

The Bills defense found out quick that they couldnt keep QB Tom Brady under wraps for long.
The Bills defense shut down the Patriots offense the first quarter and left Brady with zero passing yards.
Brady found his way back and finished the day with 338 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.
Bills LB Nick Barnett got his third interception of the season, which is a career high. Both Patriots tight
ends had 100-yard receiving days. Rob Gronkowski had 108 yards and added two touchdowns. Aaron
Hernandez caught for 138 yards and one touchdown. RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis rushed for 22 yards and
added two touchdowns on the day.

Ralph

Wilson, Jr.
INDUCTED 2009

owner
The impact Ralph Wilson, Jr. has had on professional football culminated in 2009 with his
induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
For starters, he is the only original AFL owner
to keep his team in its originating city. The role
he played in the AFL-NFL merger, his presence
on nearly every NFL committee and his passion
for the game as one who has always had the
leagues best interests at heart before his own
team has led many to refer to him as the NFLs
voice of reason.

Bruce

Smith
History

INDUCTED 2009

defensive end
Widely regarded as one of the most dominant
defensive players ever to play in the National
Football League, Bruce Smith began his tenure
with the Buffalo Bills in 1985. Over the next 19
seasons, Smith would amass more sacks (200)
than any other player in NFL history. In Buffalo,
Smith anchored the defense for 15 years, which
ranks first (along with WR Andre Reed) for the
most seasons played in a Bills uniform. In 10 of
those years, Buffalo reached the postseason.
Taken with the first overall pick in the 1985 NFL
Draft, Smith started 13 games his rookie year
and collected 48 tackles and 6.5 sacks. Those

Under his direction as owner, the Bills won


two AFL Championships in 1964 and 1965 and
were the only AFL team to make the postseason
in four consecutive years (1963-66). Later, his
Bills would become the only team ever to win
four consecutive AFC championships (1990-93)
and appear in four straight Super Bowls.
He has been honored with numerous awards,
including the Pete Rozelle Award from the
Touchdown Club in New Orleans, the NFL
Alumnis Order of the Leather Helmet and the
Timmie Award from the Touchdown Club of
Washington D.C. In 2008, Mr. Wilson received
the Maxwell Football Clubs Francis J. (Reds)
Bagnell Award for Contributions to the Game of
Football and the inaugural Lamar Hunt Award
for Professional Football at the 101 Awards
in Kansas City. At the turn of the century, The
Buffalo News named Ralph Wilson, Jr. as the
Top Sports Figure of the region in the past
millennium.

numbers jumped to 63 and 15.0, respectively,


in 1986. Perhaps his finest year came in 1990,
when he posted 101 tackles, 19.0 sacks and 14
QB pressures while the team won its first of four
consecutive AFC Championships.
Smith was named to the Pro Bowl 11 times in
his career and was the NFL Defensive Player of
the Year in 1990 and 1996. Known for his ability
to get to the opposing quarterback, Smith racked
up sacks against 74 different quarterbacks and
against every team but three: San Diego, Buffalo,
and Baltimore. He ranks first in NFL history with
13 seasons of 10 or more sacks and second on the
all-time postseason sack list with 14.5.
He was named to the NFLs All-Decade team in
both the 1980s and 1990s. Smith was the AFC
Defensive Player of the Week eight times during his Bills tenure, and Defensive Player of the
Month six times. Extremely durable, Smith ranks
13th on the all-time games played list with 279.
CAREER HIGHLIGHTS
NFLs all-time sack leader with 200.

NFLs most versatile and dangerous offensive
players in his 13 years in the league. He was
also known as one of the teams most emotional
leaders for the Buffalo Bills a team that won
more games (103) than any AFC team in the
1990s.
His ability to catch the ball as well as run with
it was a key ingredient to the Bills No Huddle
offensive attack.
The team improved to 13-3 in 1990 as Thomas

led the NFL in all-purpose yards. He rushed for


1,297 yards and scored 11 touchdowns while
catching 49 passes for 532 yards and two touchdowns. With the versatile back leading the way,
the Bills marched through the playoffs to the first

berths.
In 1991, Thomas amassed more than 2,000 allpurpose yards, just the 11th player ever to do
so. His league-leading yardage output included
1,407 yards on the ground and an additional 631
yards on a career-high 62 receptions. He scored
12 touchdowns. He reached the 2,000-yard total
again the following season which marked a record fourth straight season of leading the NFL in
yards from scrimmage.
Named to the NFLs All-Decade Team of the
1990s, Thomas was selected first- or secondteam All-Pro and All-AFC five times, and was
voted to the Pro Bowl five straight years. Thomas retired as the NFLs ninth ranked rusher with
12,074 yards and added another 4,458 yards on
472 catches. He scored 65 rushing and 23 receiving touchdowns in his 13-season career.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Equally adept at pass blocking and run


blocking, Billy Shaws ability to pull out in front

speed, strength, and natural ability made him
the driving force of the offensive unit according
to his former offensive line coach Jerry Smith.
Especially effective on short-yardage scoring
plays, Shaw would pull out from his left guard
position followed by heavy-duty runners Cookie
