Miami DE Cameron Wake said the Dolphins came into the game motivated to stop Buffalo’s rushing attack. He said they had a collective mentality that they were going to win the one-on-one battles in Sunday’s game, particularly at the line of scrimmage.
“I personally like getting in there, getting a little dirty,” said Wake. “I’ve always had that pit bull mentality. You don’t bring a Chihuahua to a dog fight. That’s the mentality you’ve got to have. It’s just man versus man. It’s my gap. I don’t care who’s going to be in there. I don’t care what you think. It’s mine, plain and simple. There’s no C+ in football. It’s pass-fail. I think every guy across the line, front and back end as well, that win it all mentality, where I’ve got to win my match up. And that’s the only way we’re going to stop a team. Again, I was excited about somebody coming in here and saying that they’re going to run the ball down our throat … yeah, not so.”
Buffalo rushed for 67 yards on 22 carries to average three yards per rush. Their 67-yard total was only better than their 65-yards rushing output in Week 1 at Baltimore.
Bills Pro Bowl guard Richie Incognito had to admit they got outperformed.
“We couldn’t find rhythm,” he said. “It starts with us up front. We should’ve had a good day. We had an off day as an offensive line. We saw it on film. There was a lot of line movement. We anticipated some of it, but not to the degree that they were ready to do it today, and it kept us off balance.”
