1. 6-2 is just a start

Super Bowl champions aren't crowned halfway through the season. The main focus for the team according to Josh Allen and Sean McDermott is to just keep improving.

"I feel good about being 6-2, but we have a lot we can improve. This team is hungry and we want to keep improving every chance that we can," Allen said.

"We're 6-2 but we need to stay humble and hungry. We're a work in progress and need to keep building on our strengths while improving weaknesses." McDermott said.

2. Hyde: Nobody panicked

Adrian Peterson ran for 101 yards in the first half but was held to just seven the entire second half. From the outside it appeared like there was going to be a repeat from last weeks loss to the Eagles.

"You got to flush those plays. Nobody was freaking out nobody was panicking," Micah Hyde said. "Coaches came in, walked over smiling and that's just the confidence they have in us. We're going to make adjustments, and we did. The first half didn't go as planned and so we were able to make an adjustment at halftime and go back out there and make plays."

3. Bills looking to control the turnover battle moving forward

Halfway through the season the Buffalo Bills need to improve the most in the turnover battle says Lorenzo Alexander.

"Turnovers are one of the big things that's been an issue in general for us," Alexander said. "I think we're a negative one for the year so far. That's probably one of the biggest things that we need to probably switch as we continue to move forward. Just looking at the history teams that are in the plus, those are teams that usually make the big runs in the playoffs."

4. Offense looking for better 3rd quarter execution

Buffalo scored on three of four drives in the first half. The only drive they didn't was a kneel-down to end the half. But in the third quarter there was a turnover on downs and two punts. Cole Beasley wants the team to improve in that area.

"We know there were some penalties there, which we talk about that all the time, so I'm not going to talk about that. We just got to find a way to start fast in the first half and start fast in the second half and keep it rolling," Beasley said. "We let them hang in there. We got to figure out a way to put teams away."
