The Bills have talked a lot amongst themselves about defending their home field. In the first half of the season they were a pedestrian 2-2 at home and 1-2 against AFC clubs. With four home games left on the schedule, three of which are against AFC teams including Kansas City Sunday, Buffalo’s players and coaches know home field must become a bigger advantage in the second half of the season.
“We’ve played phenomenal clubs, but at the same time a home game has to be our advantage,” said Aaron Williams. “We’ve got to protect our house. We haven’t done a real good job of that lately, but I think this quarter with three of the four games here it’s very important for us to win at home. We win all the road games and that’s great, but home games are special for the fans and for our momentum down the road.”
“When you get yourself in a situation where you have the third quarter (of the season) starting and three of the four being home games with the first one being Kansas City at home being extremely important,” said head coach Doug Marrone.
When asked about being a home underdog again with the Chiefs favored on Sunday, Marrone said he was not surprised in light of their .500 record at home.
“It’s going to be that way until we prove we can go out there and win on a consistent basis and we haven’t,” he said. “I’m not upset with anyone. Do you need it as motivation? I think these guys go out there every day and they understand what we have to prove each day.”
