ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Brian Moorman couldn't wait until the final stats sheet was delivered to the Buffalo Bills' locker room. The punter wanted to see, firsthand, what it looked like to have a perfect passer rating."I want to frame it," said Moorman, who threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to defensive end Ryan Denney on a fake field goal to register the NFL-best 158.3 rating.
Roscoe Parrish led the NFL in punt return average in 2007, so his 63-yard touchdown return Sunday should come as no surprise to the Seahawks.
|Roscoe Parrish, Bills||16.3*|
|Devin Hester, Bears||15.5|
|Joshua Cribbs, Browns||13.5|
|*One TD in 2007|
The Buffalo Bills get off to a fast start in 2008 with a convincing 34-10 win vs. the Seahawks.
Parrish set a single-game team record with 120 yards in punt returns. It was his third career return touchdown and first since he ran one back 74 yards in last year's opener against Denver. ... Burleson told reporters he expects to play next week, but Holmgren would only say that the player will be evaluated after having tests on Monday. ... Seahawks RB Maurice Morris left with a knee injury and will also be evaluated Monday.
