Buffalo Bills: What they're saying


On playing in Foxborough...
"I have a high regard of our opponent. The way they've gone about their business for not just a short period of time, but a long period of time. We have not won up there in Gillette Stadium. We know we're going to have to play extremely well. Our players are looking forward to it, they really are. To that challenge and there are a lot of things at stake for us. That's where our concentration is. We know and we've been told obviously the playoff scenarios and what is at stake for other teams and we know that the team we're playing has a lot at stake. We feel that we have a lot at stake also. I'm excited about going up there with them."
- Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone

"We're just trying to prepare. We know it's a tough game. We haven't won up there since I've been here and guys are playing for a lot, so we're just trying to prepare the best way we can and try to go out there on Sunday and try to play our best football game this year."
- Bills RB C.J. Spiller


On the Patriots...*
"You see a team that plays extremely hard; they've been that way since when I was even in New York. They're extremely sound. They never beat themselves and they force you when you play them, and my first year in New York we won up there, they force you when you play them to beat them. They're not going to beat themselves. Not only beat them, but to make play. You're going to have to make a play. They've been doing that for a long period of time and I think that I tip my hats to them and the job that they've all done. They're a difficult team to beat, especially at home."

On if the Bills relish the role of playing spoiler...
"Not really. We're just trying to go out there and win a game. We're not really thinking about that. We'll let the outside people talk about all that stuff, but we're just trying to prepare the best way we can to try to go out there and put together our best game so far this year."
- Bills RB C.J. Spiller

On how disruptive the Bills defense can be...
"Obviously at times it's been, and again it's a challenge for us as we look at it as those are some very good points and things that for the most part have consistently gone well for us. When you look at it, we're still looking at it from a team perspective and winning games. Right now obviously we're not happy with our results. Disappointed is probably a better way and we have a chance to play another game and get a win. I think that's where our focus is. The defense, we have some good players on that side of the ball and they've played well."
- Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone
