What They're Saying: Buffalo Bills

On the game...
"Definitely excited. Like you said; every game is a big game in this league. You can't overlook any week, but definitely excited to play against the Patriots. Of course it's a divisional game, but there's definitely a rivalry in its own. I'm excited to play in this game as well as everyone else in the locker room."
- Bills QB Tyrod Taylor

[wysifield-embeddedaudio|eid="487636"|type="embeddedaudio"|view_mode="full"]"I think we all know who we're trying to chase. If we're able to win this game, then obviously you're one game behind them. You're still behind them, but you're one game behind them. It would be significant for us. It's in our division. If you're trying to chase it, then you've got to beat them. It's as simple as that. If you don't, then you can think, 'Well, you've still got a chance at the division.' You really don't. This team is pretty darn talented. It doesn't mean you won't make the playoffs, but the likelihood of catching them is probably not very high."
- Bills Head Coach Rex Ryan

On the Patriots defense...
"They have big guys up front. They have two of the better linebackers in the league in (Dont'a) Hightower and (Jamie) Collins. Number 50 (Rob Ninkovich) is back and he's a veteran guy who has been there for a long time. And you know they have two big guys up front with (Alan) Branch and (Malcom) Brown. So they are a big, powerful team up front. Well disciplined, well coached up front."
- Bills Guard John Miller

"I mean they're like fourth in the league in points allowed. So that's the most important stat there is. They play great team defense. They're very multiple in what they do, and you're not surprised by that with a Bill Belichick team."
- Bills Head Coach Rex Ryan

On the challenge of facing the Patriots offense...
"You got two of the best tight ends in the league, you've got quick receivers outside that make plays in space, and you've got a running back who's running with the best in the league. So definitely a tough challenge for us, but we're ready for it."
- Bills Linebacker Preston Brown

On Tom Brady...
"He's a pretty good player. I love playing against him. He's the type of competitor that I feel like I am. I just like to go out there and show him what I have. Just can't wait to see the guy. It's good to see him across the field trying to get away from me."
*- Bills Defensive Tackle Marcell Dareus *

"He's the best quarterback we've ever played, so he's throwing it like he hasn't missed a beat. So we've got to be prepared, we've got to get to him. We can't show him what we're in, and see what they do early and adjust from there."
- Bills Cornerback Stephon Gilmore

"He's complicated. He's a complicated guy, so you've got to play complicated with him. He's like a poker player. He's going to let you show your hand first, and then he's going to throw his hand out. That's the kind of game you have to play."
- Bills Defensive Back Nickell Robey-Coleman

"I mean you're playing against a Hall of Famer, arguably, probably, the best quarterback that's ever played this game so his skillset is a lot different. It's more sound, his ability to read coverages, get the ball out of his hands, discern what the defense is trying to do—it's just on another level. So we have to do a good job of trying to move around, trying to confuse him if you can confuse him and get our hands on the ball if possible on the backend to create some turnovers."
- Bills Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander

[wysifield-embeddedaudio|eid="487641"|type="embeddedaudio"|view_mode="full"]"They've got a new player back there for some reason. He looks decent. I shouldn't make waves by saying he doesn't look the same to me."
- Bills Head Coach Rex Ryan

On the Patriots tight ends...
"They're big, tough, physical. Obviously very athletic, have a lot of production, especially since Tom (Brady) has come back, so we're going to have our hands full, especially in the run game. They do a really good job as far as being physical there, so we're going to have to set the edge, be physical all day and then try to cover when we have that opportunity as well."
- Bills Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander

On the win over the Patriots earlier this season...
"I think we looked like the better team that day. We'll see who the better team is this day. But, you know, for who was out there - we were definitely the better team that day."
- Bills Head Coach Rex Ryan
