McDermott on 6-2 home record: Buffalo is a 'special place' to play

The Bills finished the home portion of the regular season and have six wins in Orchard Park for the first time since 1999.

“Huge thank you to our fans all season long," coach coach Sean McDermott said after a 24-16 victory against the Miami Dolphins. "We have a 6-2 record at home and Buffalo is a special place to play. ...

"We know how important winning at home is. It was defending our dirt, as our guys say. I can't say enough about the effort our fans put forth all year to get out here and support."

'Defend our Dirt' more than a slogan to Bills' players

The Bills head to New England and then a rematch with the Dolphins in Miami to close out the season.

"We face them again in two weeks," McDermott said. "We don't want to ahead of ourselves after this. One week at a time, have to get back to work ... If you stay the same in this league, you're going to get beat. We have to continue to grow as players and as a staff."

McDermott touched on some other topics in his postgame news conference:

  • On LeSean McCoy reaching 10,000 yards: “Hitting 10,000 yards is an unbelievable achievement for LeSean McCoy. That type of accomplishment is one for the ages."
  • On the Adolphus Washington penalty: "I wasn't happy with what ensued with the penalty. We will take care of that. Need more discipline in that moment."
  • On Tyrod Taylor: “I thought he played a good game. He spread the ball around. He was decisive when he needed to be decisive. ... Our offense had a good rhythm to it, especially in the first half. Key part of our success in this game."
