For Bills rookies this is their first road game in the NFL, but for Robert Woods MetLife Stadium will feel a bit like home based on his past playing history at that venue.
Back on Sept. 8th, 2012, Woods had a monster game for USC against Syracuse on the neutral field. He had 10 receptions for 93 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He also had a 76-yard end around and a 31-yard punt return for a total of 200 all-purpose yards in a 42-29 win.
“The last time I was there I had a good game,” Woods told Buffalobills.com. ”It’s a new team on both sides, but I feel comfortable playing in that stadium. It’s kind of one of those things where you try to have in your head, I had a big game here last time, and let’s do it again. Going through the stadium it might feel a little like home field.”
His big game came over his current head coach’s team at the time as Doug Marrone was coaching Syracuse.
“He remembers,” said Woods with a wry smile.
Coach Marrone certainly wouldn’t mind seeing a duplicate performance today against the Jets.
“Relive it a little.”
