QUOTE OF THE DAY
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick
On if they’ve had to remind themselves that they haven’t been eliminated from anything yet:
There’s not a great feeling in the locker room right now just in terms of the way things have gone lately for us, but it is a nice reminder to know that if we win this next game then all of a sudden spirits pick up and all of sudden we’re back in this thing. That’s something we have to keep in mind. But really right now the focus is solely on us and fixing the things that we haven’t done well and in order to be in that position we have to fix what’s going on here. So we’re going to have a big focus on us and what we’re doing.
