Buffalo Bills News - November 6, 2000

Marker Not easy backing up Drew [2:41 PM]
Springfield Union News reports: 'The way they defensed the Buffalo Bills and Doug Flutie, they should have won going away. It didn't happen, simply because Bledsoe missed most of the game, and Friesz just wasn't up to the challenge of replacing him.'

Marker Christie, Bills go 3 and out [2:40 PM]
Worcester Telegram and Gazette reports: 'All he does is win football games. Pro football experts like to say that about Bills quarterback Doug Flutie. They should be saying it about Buffalo kicker Steve Christie.'

Marker Bishop gets Friesz-ed out [2:39 PM]
Worcester Telegram and Gazette reports: 'Bishop had been the No. 2 quarterback in recent weeks, but Friesz has been getting most of the work in practice in recent weeks, the coach said.'

Marker Flutie outFoxes Pats [2:38 PM]
Worcester Telegram and Gazette reports: 'Just when it seemed like Flutie Fever might be a thing of the past, Doug was Doug.'

Marker Bills get due [2:36 PM]
Nashua Telegraph reports: '"We had a chance at the end," Damien Woody said, "but we just couldn't finish it." They likely finished it several weeks ago.'

Marker Pats turn to backup, and Bishop gets rooked [2:35 PM]
Portland Press Herald reports: 'Drew Bledsoe was hurt and Sunday's game with the Buffalo Bills was in the balance. But instead of turning to the young quarterback with the alleged future, Coach Bill Belichick beckoned to the veteran passer with no real past.'

Marker Wet weather doesn't keep Flutie from pulling off yet another comeback [2:34 PM]
Pawtucket Times reports: '"Doug didn't play his best game today, and the conditions had a lot to do with it," added Bills head coach Wade Phillips. "But he came through for us on those last two drives. He just finds a way to win."'

Marker Review of Patriots? Thumb down [2:32 PM]
Lowell Sun reports: 'In a game like this, it's just a shame that someone had to win. And you knew it wouldn't be the Patriots.'

Marker Cheer up Patriots nation fans, your beloved team almost won [2:31 PM]
Lowell Sun reports: 'Stop me if you've heard this one before: The Patriots almost won but lost, though their 16-13 overtime loss to the Bills in the rain and swears of Foxboro gave Bill Belichick -- coach of the best 2-7 team ever slapped together -- fresh material to ulcerate over.'

Marker Christie to the rescue [9:07 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Christie has developed a winning habit when it comes to late field goals. He kicked a 34-yarder last week to beat the Jets and has two other game-winning kicks to his credit this season.'

Marker Christie brings home the bacon [9:06 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Marcellus Wiley has a nickname for Steve Christie. He calls him Bacon, as in Canadian Bacon. Sunday in Foxboro Stadium, Christie was the Saver of the Bacon for the Buffalo Bills.'

Marker Clutch Christie is automatic [9:04 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Best clutch kicker in the NFL," Wilson said proudly. General Manager John Butler did Wilson one better. "He's one of the greatest of all time."'

Marker Doug's no longer weaving that old Flutie magic [9:04 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Doug Flutie's Magic Show has run its course. If that was supposed to be a rabbit Flutie pulled out of his helmet in a game that meant the survival of the Bills' season, it more closely resembled a field mouse.'

Marker Defense stands up to the pressure [9:03 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'There are goal-line stands, and then there is the one the Buffalo Bills produced in the third quarter of Sunday's 16-13 victory over the New England Patriots. The Patriots had four plays inside the 1-yard line, including three first-and-goal situations on the same possession. However, they failed to score against the Bills' stout defense as linebacker John Holecek intercepted a John Friesz pass in the end zone.'

Marker Monday billboard [9:02 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Big Picture: It was messy, and not just a little lucky, but the Bills are alive - barely - in the AFC East.'

Marker Bills lead NFL's high-tech offensive [9:01 AM]
Business First of Buffalo reports: 'When it comes to the Information Superhighway, the National Football League has entered the fast lane. And the Buffalo Bills are among the franchises riding shotgun in this high-speed marketing chase.'

Marker Christie does it yet again [6:30 AM]
D and C reports: '"That's our team," he said. "Doug didn't have the greatest game, but I don't think any quarterback could have. But he finds a way to win."'

Marker Flutie not anti-Johnson [6:29 AM]
D and C reports: 'I never said anything about Rob in the whole interview," Flutie said yesterday. "It's unfortunate that those quotes were what they were. They were anonymous quotes which I tend to disbelieve. I'm sorry (Johnson) feels that way."'

Marker Forget who's at QB, just enjoy the show [6:28 AM]
D and C reports: 'Yesterday on a gray, soggy, windy New England afternoon, the Bills proved they are knitted tighter than your best pair of wool socks, and wouldn't those have come in handy here.'

Marker Notes on Bills/Patriots game [6:27 AM]
D and C reports: 'The Bills are 14-6 in OT in their history, second-best in the NFL behind only Pittsburgh's 13-5-1.'

Marker Christie's foot paying the Bills [6:26 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'Of the Bills' five wins this season, four have come on Christie kicks in the final minute or overtime, and three have been on the game's final play.'

Marker Thumbs down [6:25 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'It was not a magical victory like the ones we've come to expect from Doug Flutie over the past 17 years. But Flutie, 38, who is the first to say some of his performances are not artistic masterpieces or statistical wonders, showed once again that he wins more than he loses on Sunday afternoons.'

Marker For game (and season), when it rains it pours [6:24 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'This is the kind of day it was for the Patriots. It was gray, dank, and soggy. It was mushroom weather. It was a day that encapsulated this dreary, 2-7 season.'

Marker Debut was a Foxboro Friesz out [6:23 AM]
Boston Globe reports: '"Extremely average. Not good enough to win. I throw an interception on first and goal at the 1. It's inexcusable," Friesz said after yesterday's 16-13 overtime loss to Buffalo in which the 11-year veteran took over for the injured Drew Bledsoe early in the second quarter and the Patriots trailing, 10-0.'

Marker Big man was the big factor [6:22 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'A big reason middle linebacker Sam Cowart was able to make so many disruptive plays and lead the Bills with 14 tackles and one sack was because of the work of big Ted Washington up front.'

Marker He foot the bill [6:21 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'There are only eight seconds left and your team needs you to kick a 48-yard field goal. Being a kicker is not easy. Steve Christie certainly made it look that way, and then some, in the Bills' 16-13 overtime win against the Patriots yesterday.'

Marker Flutie rises to occasion when needed [6:20 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'A team quarterbacked by Doug Flutie won a game at Foxboro Stadium yesterday. Would you rather wait until I could get back to you with some new news?'

Marker They'll lose sleep over loss [6:19 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'The Buffalo Bills left here last night with a victory they deserved because when the game was on the line, they made the plays, and the Patriots did not.'

Marker Bledsoe, day-to-day, may take a pass [6:18 AM]
Boston Globe reports: '"My feeling after throwing on the sidelines was that I wouldn't be able to throw accurately enough to be effective for our team, compounded by the fact that every time I took a snap I would aggravate it more," he said. "So I felt the best chance for us to win was to go with John [Friesz]. He made a couple of nice plays that barely got broken up. With the exception of probably one play, he played a good game for us."'

Marker Opinions few and far between [6:16 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'Flutie struggled for most of the game, but as Tasker and Criqui said, when the Bills needed big plays, Flutie made them. "Flutie makes it happen in the face of unbelievably adverse conditions," Tasker said.'
