These are four single season records that could be a surprise for Buffalo Bills fans.
The Buffalo Bills have a long history and are one of the oldest franchises in NFL history. They have had some of the greatest players ever to play their position like Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Andre Reed and Bruce Smith.
However, there have been some players over that time that had impressive seasons and surpassed some of these all-time greats, even if it was just for one season. These are four single season records that could be a surprise to Buffalo Bills fans of who the record holder is.
Completion Percentage with over 400 attempts in a season
Current record holder: Kyle Orton (64.2 completion pct.)
The 2014 season was one of the most memorable seasons for Buffalo Bills for a number of reasons. This was the first season since the passing of Ralph Wilson in March, the sale of the Bills to the Pegulas, and it was also the team’s first winning season at 9-7 since 2004.
The Bills entered training camp with the belief that EJ Manuel would be the team’s starting quarterback, as he entered the second year in the NFL. However, right before the start of the season the Bills signed Kyle Orton, and after four games, he was named the starter.
The veteran journeyman would go on to have a good season for the Bills with over 3,000 passing yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 12 starts. He also would end up with the franchise record for completion percentage among quarterbacks with at least 400 attempts at 64.2%, edging out Jim Kelly by 0.1%.
That would end up being the only season that Orton played for the Bills as he announced his retirement at the end of the season.
