For the second straight week the Bills are facing a team coming off the bye on the road. Buffalo squeaked by the Dolphins last week coming off their bye. Now they’re tasked with doing it against a Saints team that is 4-0 coming off their last four open dates.
Bills head coach Doug Marrone in his weekly conversation with Buffalobills.com said it’s often harder to plan for what a team that’s had ups and downs will do coming out of the bye week because they may try some different things. With a team like the Saints, who have been pretty successful on both sides of the ball they might be easier to prepare for. As Marrone sees it their early season success means they’re more likely to keep doing what has worked for them.
“I would think so,” Marrone told Buffalobills.com. “They might look at some of the things that they’re not doing well and look at that, whatever that may be. But usually if they’re winning games and they’re successful you don’t really see that much change because what they’ve been doing has been working.
“Our players are rested we’re ready to go. We know they’re going to be hungry and get ready to get started down there. On the road again, back to back road wins, it’ll be a big accomplishment and that’s what we’re looking forward to doing.”
