In anticipation of wintery conditions during Sunday’s game versus the Dolphins, the Bills took to Ralph Wilson Stadium yesterday to practice. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Doug Marrone, Buffalo Bills Head Coach
Q: How mentally challenging is it to get the team up for practicing outdoors since you’re out of the playoffs?
A: I was fired up. We have a lot to play for. I said it the other day when I say this is critical and it is. It is critical at least from my standpoint and that’s how I’m addressing the team. There’s a lot of things that we’re playing for. We haven’t had a winning record within our division in a long period of time, this last time being in 2007. I think that’s in a twelve year period. That’s a lot on the line because in order to turn it around, yes we’d all like to say we’re going to accomplish all these feats in one year, but we’ve got to start doing some of these little things that we talked about before to prepare as we move forward. I think the other thing that comes to mind is when you look, we haven’t won the fourth quarter, of how I said we’d present things to the team, of the season in a long period of time. I think it’s important we have two division games and when people say, ‘You’re out of it,’ and things like that, I can understand the reality of that, but again at the same time I hope everyone understands how important it is for us to play.
