Drew Bledsoe Quotes [4:45 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '"You know what, this is an interesting game and for the past month we have not been playing particularly well and we also haven't gotten any breaks over the last month. I think that when we watched the film there are times when we are trying to get something going and then something negative happens, where something just doesn't bounce our way. You have to be able to continue to go to work, continue to get better, and then eventually it all evens out. You play long enough and play hard enough, eventually those breaks will come back your way and we got a couple of them today."'
Travis Henry Quotes [4:44 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '"We played with a sense of urgency.

The first couple of weeks we were not doing it. Today the offensive line blocked great and we knew we had to come out and have a physical game in the run game considering that Eric Moulds was out. We just had to take control and that was what the offensive line, they took control of this football game."'

Steve Spurrier Quotes [4:39 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '"Well not too much to say, Buffalo dominated the game. It looked like we had a chance to get back in it at 10-7 but we fumbled on the one-yard line, maybe we could have gotten into the ball game. Overall they ran the ball, we couldn't run the ball very well, and they beat us pretty good. We didn't have too many yards, had two drives about the whole game other than that we couldn't get much going. They played well, give 'em credit they dominated us."'
Bruce Smith Quotes [4:38 AM]
