The 2012 season has fallen considerably short of expectations, but Bills players are determined to push their disappointment aside in preparation for Sunday’s season finale against the Jets. Going out on a winning note is one of the things the players in Buffalo’s locker room are emphasizing.
“To put everything in perspective we obviously haven’t accomplished the goals we set out to for our team this season,” said
“With all the disappointment that’s happened this year, with all the injuries, the criticism, all the different things, I think towards the end of the year, when there’s no playoffs, when there’s not a whole lot to play for in terms of this win catapulting us to somewhere else, it’s tough,” said Ryan Fitzpatrick. “You always at the end of the season kind of evaluate what went wrong, but this is a game where they’re not really playing for a whole lot in terms of playoff implications. But it’s a pride game, and it’s a game to go out there, and as Chan put it, who hates to lose? You go out there, and we hate losing and I’m sure they do too, so we’ve got to go out there and prove we’re the team that hates to lose more.”
It’s a division game and that adds some measure of incentive, especially knowing that the Jets have won eight of the last nine against the Bills.
“It’s very important, not just for myself, but the people in this locker room, the people upstairs,” said
“It’s the last week. We’ve got to give it our all,” said
