1. Stefon Diggs looking to iron out the wrinkles

A lot of Bills fans were excited to see Stefon Diggs playing in his first game in Orchard Park this past Sunday. Diggs was a big part of the game in week one, as he caught eight passes for 86 yards, and most of his catches moved the chains for a first down. Diggs knows that he has things that he needs to work on throughout the week to be better for this Sunday's game. 

"I'm just trying to execute at a high level for everything," Diggs explained. "Whether it's blocking, finishing plays, or blocking downfield, I'm just trying to go that extra mile each and every play really. There's a lot of those little things that you try to build off of because we didn't really have a preseason. We're coming straight out of the gate and playing real football, so you don't have the time to iron out the wrinkles."

2. McDermott on containing Fitzmagic

Sean McDermott's Bills played and beat Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Dolphins twice last season. While the Bills look to get their first road win of the season, they will have to go through an improved Miami Dolphins team that won't give up easily. McDermott talked about what type of player Fitzpatrick is and what he expects from the Dolphins on Sunday. 

"He's super talented with tremendous abilities," McDermott said. "And he's as good a quarterback as there is out there. We have a lot of respect for Ryan, so you have to prepare for a good Miami Dolphins football team on the opposite side of the ball. In particular, Ryan does a great job and they have added pieces upfront, and they've added pieces to the weaponry that he has at his disposal. Their tight end does a really good job, and that was a really close game last week and we expect a very good challenge from a good and well-coached Dolphins team."
