Buffalo Bills score 74 points against Carolina (photo)

If you happened to tune into the Buffalo Bills versus Carolina Panthers preseason game for just a split second, you may have noticed a score that was too good to be true.

And you’d be right.

Late in the first half of Friday night’s game, the Buffalo Bills television broadcast production team put up a score that would be a record-breaking performance for the league. Unfortunately, it wasn’t legitmate.

With just over two minutes to go, the Buffalo Bills lead the Carolina Panthers by a resounding score of 74-10. That’s right, 74 points!

The score was obviously a mistake, and it was quickly fixed to the accurate score of the time at 10-6 Buffalo.

The game is currently at half with the Bills still leading the Panthers 13-6. Bills rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins made his first catch in the NFL, and finished his night with three catches for 21 yards. Quarterback E.J. Manuel finished 9-of-13 for 96 yards.

Panthers rookie WR Kelvin Benjamin had just one reception in the first half, but it was a 29 yard touchdown reception while Benjamin was on his back.
