The two losses in the span of five days have dropped the Bills to a .500 record on the season at 5-5, and though they put themselves in a deep hole concerning the AFC playoff race no one in Buffalo’s locker room Thursday night was giving up on the season. Not by a long shot.
“We’ve worked too hard and prepared too much during each week so I know no one is going to quit,” said Jerry Hughes. “We’re going to fight until there are zeros on the clock. Everybody fought back. We’ve just got to find ways to just nip the little things in the bud.”
When asked if he still believes the Bills are a playoff team, Hughes quickly answered in the affirmative.
“Absolutely. We have a lot of fight in us. We’re very resilient. We just have to find a way to minimize the little things. It’s the little things that I think are just getting us right now,” said Hughes.
The defensive end didn’t deny that the loss was a costly one, but with six more games to make something happen, Hughes said the key is to not let one game’s outcome affect another.
“Sure it hurts,” he said of the loss to Miami. “It’s a division opponent and that’s our main goal. It definitely hurts and it stings, but we’ve got to bounce back and can’t let it affect the rest of the season.”
