Richie Lucas, normally a quarter- back, was switched to the defensive side and fifa 15 ultimate team coins played well, picking off two Blanda passes. “I think I would have been better off playing the secondary. I practiced defensive halfback seven minutes a week. I played a half a game, and I intercepted two passes.”
“He could have been a heck of a safety,” said Elbert Dubenion. “He played safety one game, had two interceptions. But he didn’t like it because there wasn’t any glory in playing safety.”
Unfortunately for Lucas, who appeared to have at last found his niche after a full season and a half in Buffalo, the Houston game would be his last with the Bills. “I got this letter at home in Glassport,” he recalled. “My mother signs for it and has it for- warded to me in Buffalo. It said I was being called back into service. If my mother didn’t sign for that letter, it wouldn’t have been forwarded to Buffalo.”
The Bills played host to the woeful Oakland Raiders in the season’s final game at War Memorial Stadium. The 1-6 Raiders were just what the Bills needed—a patsy that they could beat up on to kick-start what had thus far been a lackluster season. But the Raiders were of the same mindset, and came into Buf- falo intent on reversing their own misfortunes.
The visitors scored on their first play from scrim- mage, as Tom Flores hit halfback Charley “Tornado” Fuller with an 85-yard touchdown pass, giving his team the 7-0 lead. Midway through the first quarter, the Bills’ Dewey Bohling fum- bled on the Raiders’ 16, and cornerback Fred William- son returned it to the Buf- falo 9. Moments later, Allen Miller scored his first touch- down of the game from one yard out, and the Raiders had a shocking 14-0 lead. At 2:23 of the second quarter and the ball on his own 37, Johnny Green—making his first appearance of the sea- son with the Bills—hit Elbert Dubenion with a bomb at the Oakland 25.
