Bills coach Sean McDermott: 'Tyrod is our starter'

After another humbling loss, Bills coach Sean McDermott addressed the media Sunday and sounded much like he did after last week's loss to the New York Jets. The Bills lost for the first time at home this season, falling 47-10 to the New Orleans Saints.

Here are some takeaways from McDermott:

On the quarterback situation: "Tyrod is our starter. ... I'm just going to evaluate Nathan’s play. I thought he did some good things. Moved the offense there. Obviously, got us into the end zone, so that was a positive."

On the loss: "Well, they beat us. Give them a ton of credit. They beat us. I got to coach better, we got to play better, that’s the obvious. This was not what we expected and we’ve got to take a hard look at things."

On the defense: "It starts up front. It starts up front [and] we’ve got to win at the line of scrimmage. That’s where this game is won, is up front. We’ve got to do a better job there."

On what's ahead: “We have to hit the reset button and regroup. We’re 5-4. You’re going to get tested in this league, no one said it was easy. We’ll be honest with ourselves and go hard back to work. Our fans deserve more.”

On what he told the team: "Just that we’ve got a certain standard. That wasn’t up to our standard. Really, that standard is not changing. It’s what we look every day to accomplish, is to play at that standard, to do our work at that standard and today was not indicative of the standard that we’ve set for ourselves around here.

On the offensive struggles: "Again, give them credit. They did some good things but we've got to get into a rhythm. I thought we got into a rhythm in the first series and couldn’t find it after that. There [are] multiple things we can do better there."
