Bills...34 Seahawks...10

September 08, 2008|From the Associated Press

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Special teams led the Buffalo Bills to a 34-10 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Roscoe Parrish scored on a 63-yard punt return. Punter Brian Moorman completed a 19-yard touchdown pass to defensive end Ryan Denney on a fake field goal. And kicker Rian Lindell recovered a fumble on a kickoff, setting up Trent Edwards' 30-yard touchdown pass to Robert Royal.

Marshawn Lynch also scored on a 21-yard run in a game in which the Bills never trailed, blowing out the flat-footed and injury-depleted four-time defending NFC West champions. Buffalo opened a season with a win for only the fourth time in 12 years and began dashing concerns about its inability to score and defend.

The 34 points came from a team that failed to score 20 a dozen times last season. They were also four more than Buffalo combined to score in its final three games of 2007.

Quoteworthy: "It's one of those games we're going to learn a painful lesson. But we'll be better next week." -- Mike Holmgren, Seahawks coach
