On if settling for four field goals was the difference in the game today…

It definitely had something to do with it. We have to score touchdowns whenever we get the opportunity. Scoring field goals is not going to cut it and it came back to bite us in the butt today. As an offensive unit, we can’t settle for that. We’re definitely going to put a lot of pressure on ourselves because of that.

On the eight sacks by the Jets defense…

You have to give them credit. They did things that are different (and) that’s their defense—create some confusion. It worked for them on a couple of plays there. We have to get better at seeing those things and make the plays when we have the opportunity.

On the Bills coming back to tie the game…

We gave ourselves an opportunity. We didn’t play well early. Again, we struggled offensively and we came out slow (and) sluggish. That’s on us. We have to get better in that area, but 20-20 with 10 minutes left, you definitely have an opportunity and we didn’t take advantage of it today.
