QUOTE OF THE DAY
ERIC WOOD, Buffalo Bills center
Q: How significant is the first road test with a young team?
A: It’s going to be important for EJ (Manuel) to communicate well. It’ll be loud, especially early and on big third downs he’ll have to do a good job. And they run some pretty different pressure looks, different as opposed to what we’ve seen the past couple of weeks. I’m sure he’ll be prepared. I’ve got a lot of confidence in him and it’ll just be in the moment with the noise.
