It's a good time to be a Buffalo sports fan with the Bills and Sabres off to tremendous starts. But how good are their starts?
With the Sabres' win last night to move to 8-1-1 and the Bills sitting at 5-1, the teams have combined for 13 victories before Nov. 1 for only the third time, and the last time was 30 years ago.
The Bills have one more game in October, Sunday against the visiting Philadelphia Eagles. The Sabres have three more games: Thursday at the New York Rangers, Friday at the Detroit Red Wings and Monday against the Arizona Coyotes.
