The Buffalo Bills were shut out for the first time since 2008. The Bills were sacked seven times and posted just 145 yards of offense.
Here are some excerpts from what coach Sean McDermott told the media:
- On the offense: "We were out of rhythm on offense and needed to find some consistency. We would have a good play and then we would have a no gain or negative play and you can’t do that in this environment against a good football team.”
- On the wide receivers: "I’m going to look at the film and see if it was wide receivers. I’m not big at putting the blame on one position. There are usually different hands in the jar."
- On the lack of the run game. “We’ve got to make sure we establish a line of scrimmage and that sets up the running game and that sets up the pass game, whether it’s play action or whatnot. But you’ve got to make sure you’re winning your one-on-one, whatever it is. Whether it’s upfront or outside, that we are winning those one-on-ones. And I don’t think we did that enough today overall. That’s why you get the result that we got. We go back and we learn from it. It’s a tough environment to play in, but these guys will learn from this type of situation and we will build from it.”
- On the interception late in the first half: "Josh knows better. Obviously, he has to learn from that. You go into the half, possibly, I don’t like to play the hypothetical game, 13-3. Again, the “would’ve, should’ve could’ve,” we have to learn from it. He has to learn from it and I am confident that he will.”
- On being shut out: “Look, anytime that you don’t put up any points, you are going to look at everything and you start making sure we are putting players in the proper positions. We do that in all three phases. Look, this is a team game. It wasn’t just offense. It was defense, special teams, all of us in it together."
