Bills 30, Panthers 14

Posted October 24, 1998

— Doug Flutie's methods were different, and he used some early brilliance to lead the Buffalo Bills to a 30-14 victory over winless Carolina Panthers Sunday night.

This comes as the Bills' best winning streak in two years.

The Bills had a ten-point lead in the first half when Flutie threw for 184 yards and two touchdowns on nine of 12 passing.

The Panthers lost their ninth consecutive game overall and their sixth in a row at Ericsson Stadium. Carolina won its first nine games in the facility in 1996 but has lost nine of eleven since, hurting itself with turnovers, untimely penalties and poor execution.

It was more of the same Sunday night, when Carolina turned it over three times, including twice in the Bills' end zone. The Panthers also were called for ten penalties, including two personal fouls, and were generally inept at containing the elusive Flutie.
