Bills head coach Rex Ryan has lobbied the Buffalo fan base more than once this season to support the team for home games and the fans have come through in a big way. Unfortunately the team’s home record hasn’t reflected that support. Buffalo has a 1-3 home mark, but that has not dissuaded Ryan’s belief that home field can still provide an edge for his team this Sunday.
“It is still a huge advantage for us… it just hasn’t shown up that way,” Ryan said. “I think it’s going to be a big advantage for us, I do. Our fans have been unbelievable. Their record is not 3-4. They’ve been unbelievable. We have to follow suit as a team. I get it. There are some circumstances that probably have not weighed in our favor. But I haven’t given up faith. I truly believe where it’s going to end up. We’re going to be that team. We’re closer to that team that we envisioned from a personnel standpoint than we’ve been in a long, long time. Albeit without Kyle Williams, without Aaron (Williams), without some of our guys, but, we’ve got a good group of guys and some difference makers getting healthy and that’s key for us.”
Chief among them LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams, who will be looking to make Buffalo’s run game the identity of their offense.
Also expected to return to the lineup this week are RT Seantrel Henderson, RG John Miller and possible WR Sammy Watkins.
