Bills players know what their fans have been dealing with in Western New York. They dealt with it personally right along with them before flying out to Detroit to get ready for tonight’s game against the Jets at Ford Field. So when asked if they’re playing all the more for their Buffalo faithful, the answer was a resounding yes.
“The city is on our back,” said Marcell Dareus. “We were the lucky ones to get out to still shine light on such a gloomy situation. So we’re going to try our best to bring it home for the home team.”
“Anytime you’ve got a city going through the type of turmoil we’ve gone through you want to go out and give them something to hang their hat on,” said Fred Jackson. “We definitely want to go out and play for them. We definitely want to try to get this win, not only for ourselves but for everybody watching back home in anticipation.”
“We’ve talked about that as an organization and as a team,” said Bills team President Russ Brandon. “With what our community is going through right now we look at it as a three hour opportunity to take people’s mind off what is in front of them. And what they’ve been through and provide them Buffalo Bills football and hopefully it’ll be a great outcome for them, our fans and we expect to represent the Buffalo region and community in the appropriate manner.”
