The Bills bye week has come right in the middle of the season in Week 8. When they come back however, they’ve got two games in a span of five days with Kansas City followed by Miami on the following Thursday night on the road. So the players are making a point to rest up knowing they’ll be right back at it in short order.
“For me just take the load off myself,” said Sammy Watkins of his plans for the bye. “Rest up and be smart and still work out a little bit. A couple of days off can’t hurt you. So for me it’s rest up and get away from football, but also know I’ve got to come back prepared because it’s a short week. We’ve got two games in (less than a week).”
Of course riding high at 5-3 some players are reluctant to take the break even though their bodies are welcoming the rest.
“Anytime you win you’d like to get right back out on the field and go at it again,” said Kyle Orton. “But yeah it’s been a long eight weeks and it’s always a good time at the midpoint to get away from it refreshed and be ready to go for the second half.”
