What They're Saying: Buffalo Bills


On playing the Patriots...

"Historically great football team with arguably one the greatest coaches to ever coach in the NFL. For the opportunity to do that I am blessed but at the same time we've got a game plan to execute. They're going to be ready. They seem like they always are. It's what makes Coach Belichick so great."

- Bills Quarterback Josh Allen

"They've been the standard of our division for the last 15 years. For us to go up there and beat them would be huge obviously for the city, for our team and organization, because they are a team that has really had our number since I have been here. It would show a lot of growth for a young football team to be able to go into their place and find a way to win."

- Bills Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander

"I know they are not happy about the way they have played. I know they are going to come out and try to make a statement of 'don't forget about us now' as they try to get into the playoffs."

- Bills Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander

"Some teams just fold when they know they're not in it. They're making New Year's Eve plans and scheduling vacations because they're not in the playoffs. With us, it's totally different. Coach is motivating us. Obviously, we're out of the playoff race but we're still going to work every day and compete and have fun. We're a good football team, we're making progress. The scoreboard isn't indicating it, but eventually it will. We knew that for these last two games we've got to try to get on a roll for the future."

- Bills Safety Micah Hyde

On Tom Brady...

"Tom Brady was one of the guys I looked up to growing up. It's kind of surreal that I get to face off against him. His game - he's just been on ever since he's been on the field. The way he attacks the game. How smart he is. Situational football is one of his key strengths. He's arguably the greatest to ever play."

- Bills Quarterback Josh Allen

"He looks even better than he has in years past, believe it or not. I know that the numbers may not support that, but I think his game is strong, he doesn't turn the ball over. I think he's as good as ever."

- Bills Head Coach Sean McDermott

"Any time you go against him you have to raise your game to the next level."

- Bills Cornerback Tre'Davious White

On playing the Patriots at Gillette Stadium...

"When you play well at home, it usually leads to winning in the playoffs, and they've been able to do that for a number of years."

- Bills Head Coach Sean McDermott

On the Patriots offense...

"They've got a ton of weapons. You go right down through the list starting with the guys that have been there a long time with Tom [Brady] and then the line, the continuity that they've had over the years and they play as good as any line out there, they're well-coached. So a lot of respect for what they do up there."

- Bills Head Coach Sean McDermott
