All offseason the Bills worked their tails off to be a better opponent for the perennial AFC East champs, the New England Patriots. Brandon Spikes was among the most vocal Bills determined to dethrone the Patriots. It simply didn’t happen on Sunday however, and not being able to back up his words is what left Spikes most disappointed.
“Absolutely. I think I talked a lot of trash in the offseason and we weren’t able to back it up,” Spikes said. “That’s what hurts me the most. I pride myself on being a man of my word and we just let the city down. It was just unfortunate, it’s over with. We’ve got to put it in the past and learn from it and get better. We can’t make the same mistakes. It’s a long season. I think the best teams get over a few bumps in the road to get better. I don’t want to say we’re happy about a loss, but hopefully we learn from this, we’ve got a young team, and it motivates guys.”
Spikes is hopeful that in the second meeting in the season finale they can even the score and position themselves where the game means something.
“It is what it is. I’m here. I’m a Buffalo Bill and I’m proud to be here, but that’s the NFL any given Sunday. It’s a long season and it’s still early in the year and it’s just up to us what we want to do with it,” Spikes said. “We either go downhill or we get better, it’s just that simple. We can’t dwell on the past. We’ll see them again in December and hopefully we’re in the right position to make sure we’re able to get to the playoffs. That’s our whole goal here to get to the playoffs.”
