NFL teams are fond of looking at the schedule in quarters. When the Buffalo Bills do so, they’ll come away feeling awfully good about the first one of the 2019 season – even if it ended on a sour note.

Running game: B Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore is something else. He surpassed 15,000 career rushing yards, finishing with 109 yards on just 17 carries.

The parking lot was filled, tents were set up, flags were flying and there were smells of fired-up grills. Footballs were thrown back and forth, music played and cars passing by honked horns to the chant-tune of "Let’s-Go-Buff-a-lo."
