This Day in Buffalo Sports History: The Bills come home

   Sept. 18, 1960 -- The Buffalo Bills weren't successful when they played their first-ever game on the road. Would some home cooking do much for their fortunes?

   Well, no. The Bills lost their first-ever home game, 27-21, to the Denver Broncos in War Memorial Stadium.

   Buffalo led a couple of times early in the game, thanks to touchdowns by Wray Carlton and Elbert Dubenion. Johnny Pyeatt returned an interception 40 yards for the winning touchdown in the fourth quarter for the Broncos. It was Denver's sixth interception of the game.

   The game was watched by 15,229. The Bills' fans would have to wait another week for win number 1.
