QUOTE OF THE DAY
FRED JACKSON, Buffalo Bills Running Back
On being underdogs this weekend:
A: We just have to come out and play like we know we can. They’re a great team. They have been for a while. I think it’s an extremely tough challenge to go down there and beat them, but it’s one we are looking forward to. The best way we can do that is to go out there and play consistent football. If we do that we feel like we’ll give ourselves an opportunity to win a football game. They’re going to make plays and we have to be able to weather the storm when we first start. That crowd is going to be in it, that’s one of the things we’ll have to deal with throughout the game. We feel like if we go out there and play consistently we will be alright.
