How could the Bills do worse than their 47-10 defeat last week to the Saints? How about following it with another 30-point loss where the rookie quarterback threw five interceptions and the team nearly set the franchise record for points allowed?

It has been 47 years since a Bills rookie had a 300-yard passing day. Dennis Shaw accomplished the feat in his first game as a starter, completing 12 of 21 passes for 317 yards to outduel Joe Namath in a 34-31 win over the Jets in 1970. Even Hall of Famer Jim Kelly didn't hit the 300-yard mark until his ninth game with the Bills, and he was hardly a rookie after lighting u…
