Devin McCourty, the New England defensive back, has played enough games in Buffalo to know what to expect when the Patriots roll into New Era Field for Sunday's game.
“When we pull into that stadium, there’s nobody happy to see that bus pull in there,” McCourty said Wednesday, according to Boston.com. “A lot of middle fingers, a lot of mouthing words.”
And it doesn't take a lip reader to know what words are being mouthed at them. They don't "seem to be compliments of any sort," he said.
However, McCourty said New Era is one of the "most underrated stadiums" and he lauded Bills fans for their passion and support. "It's not really friendly for us up there," he said.
“Their crowd comes and they come loud and energized for Buffalo, but it’s been fun to go there and get that atmosphere and be kind of in that stadium where everyone else is against you,” he said. “We know we have to kind of play well and get going early, or they really get into it and it makes it even harder to win there.”
