Micah Hyde on Josh Norman's big first game as a Bill
In his Bills debut, Josh Norman forced and recovered his first fumble of the season. Norman
played his first game as a Bill in the win against the Raiders. Due to a hamstring injury, the Bills cornerback had been on injured reserve for the first three weeks of the season. Micah Hyde explained the energy that Norman brings to this defense.
"We know what [Josh Norman] brings to this team and brings to this defense," Hyde stated. "He brings a lot of energy and he goes after football. History shows what he can do, and we're excited to have him back after being out a couple of weeks. That's the type of depth that we have on this football team. When one guy gets hurt, another guy steps in, and Norman made a huge play for us. He really got our defense moving today, once we got that takeaway, we were able to go out there and start making more plays."
Quinton Jefferson explains his big takeaway
Quinton Jefferson recorded his first career forced fumble and his first fumble recovery as a Buffalo Bill. He stopped the Raiders' second-to-last drive in the fourth quarter to help seal up the win for Buffalo. Jefferson now has three career fumble recoveries, and after the game, he talked about his big play of the game.
"It's something we practice all the time, "Jefferson said. "When you're rushing, you want to finish. I was coming up, I was powering, and I knew he was stepping up, trying kind of climb the pocket. So, I saw the ball and I just tried to rake it out. I was just trying to make a play for my team."
John Brown on Josh Allen's toughness
Right before the end of the first half, Josh Allen awkwardly landed on his left shoulder. He returned to the game and didn't miss a snap. John Brown talked about the toughness his quarterback displayed throughout the game.
"He's a guy that's all about this team, Brown explained. "Every day, he gives it his all and he would do anything for his team. So, it's not just about him, he cares about everybody on his team and, he will do whatever it takes."
