Boyd’s 1997 NFL Replay Game 72 Detroit at Buffalo

Sanders runs all over the Bills

The Detroit Lions superstars showed out Sunday afternoon as the Lions pummeled the Bills, 44-17, in front of a sold-out Rich Stadium.

Barry Sanders and Herman Moore were usntoppable. Sanders rushed for 222 yards on 30 carries with 4 TDs! Herman Moore caught 7 passes for 145 yards and 2 TDs! Scott Mitchell threw for 214 yard and 2 TDs.

Sanders now has 827 yards rushing on the season and 7 TDs. He is on pace for over 2,000 yards. Only OJ Simpson in 1973 & Eric Dickerson in 1983 have accomplished the feat.

The Lions are now 4-2 on the season and will try to avenge an early season loss to the Buccaneers next week in Tampa. The Bills are now 2-3 on the season and will travel to New England.
