2. Devin Singletary: "We're just finding ways to get better"
In their 48-19 win over the Broncos on Saturday, the Bills had one of their best rushing days of the season. The team had a total of 182 rushing yards which is the second-highest output of the season. This was also the second game of the season where both Singletary and Moss both rushed for 60-plus yards. After the game, Singletary talked about the team's performance since the bye week and the great partnership between Josh Allen and Brian Daboll.
"It's just building and building week in and week out, Singletary said. "We're just finding ways to get better and the confidence has been steady building…It's been amazing on both of their parts. Coach Daboll been dialing it up, and Josh has been doing what Josh do. Like I told the guys from the beginning, man, that's our general. He's just been showing us that day in and day out. That's major for us, like I say, to get us going and keep it going. As long as we keep that going, we've got a great chance."
3. Passing the torch
Twenty of the 53 players on the Bills active roster are 25-years old or younger. Those players don't even have a faint memory of when the last time the Bills won the AFC East. There have been so many talented players who have been a part of the Bills organization but never had the chance to experience the accomplishment of a division title. After Saturday's game, Dion Dawkins took the time to give a shout out to the Bills players that came before him and stated this team couldn't have done it without them.
"The good thing is that everybody who has come before us has a part in this. The guys that are here now learned from guys like Richie [Incognito] and Tyrod [Taylor] and E. Wood and all of those guys that couldn't do what we did, they left their pieces on and they passed what they could on. We grabbed it and we kept going. So, for all those guys, E. Wood, all those old captains, Kyle Williams, all those legends. They are still right here with us because we have all of their knowledge. Everyday week in, week out that we're flooding on our young guys. So, it's a ferris wheel, it just keeps going and keeps going to where we just pass it on and pass it on. And those guys have passed it on to us, and we just took the baton and we're still running."
