DAMIEN WOODY

Q: Do you consider it risky winning so many games by a close margin?DW:

That is part of the National Football League. I'm sure a lot of people can point back to games where one or two plays here or there and the outcome could have been different. In the end all the people are going to worry about are the wins and losses. Right now we have 13 [wins]. We want to keep moving forward in the win column.

Q: You guys had your first 100-yard rusher last week. The offensive line has to feel pretty good about that happening.DW:

It was a good accomplishment. I'm proud of Antowain [Smith] and everyone that made it happen. We still have a lot of work that needs to be done. Everything wasn't perfect in that game. We are moving forward from the Jets game and now it is time to concentrate on a very good Buffalo defense. We have our work cut out for us.

Q: How has this offensive line come together? You have played in 11 straight games now?DW:

I think we have improved a lot. Any time you have the same guys playing together for a while the cohesion is going to be very good. The only thing that I can say about our offensive line is that we are making strides every day. As long as we keep doing that, we will eventually get to where we want to be.

CHRISTIAN FAURIA

Q: Do you guys get caught up in the different playoff scenarios?CF:

I don't see any need for us to get caught up in what happened in the past or what is going to happen in the future. Our main theme this whole year has been to take it one game at a time. I know it is a cliché and everyone says it, but we really take that to heart. Every game is different. Every game style is different. Every defense was different. I think that was one of the keys for us staying focused throughout the year and winning so many in a row. We really didn't dwell too much on the past and look too much toward the future. That has helped us out.

Q: Have you ever seen a team be able to do just that so well and take it game by game?CF:

When you start a season and design a team with a mentality that is what you try to get across. I doesn't really happen all the time because it is so easy to get caught up in all the hoopla and what people are saying. Realistically you can only control what is in front of you and not what is behind you or ahead of you.
