ON THE BILLS' OFFENSIVE PERFORMANCE
"I think it's obviously not good enough. I think it's a matter of concentrating a lot on progression with the quarterback, but like I said before we need to progress in three areas – making sure we protect well, making sure that we catch some of those, and making sure that we throw some of them to better spots. I think those three areas are what you have to improve on, and we have to keep plugging away to improve on those things. I think the backs are running well. I think that when we get into games where we throw as much as we did, that gets us in trouble."
ON THE DEFENSE'S PERFORMANCE
"I think there were times they did a heck of a job against the running game all game. Defensively overall I was pleased. There were a couple of alignment things, a couple of scrambles, a penalty and the one big play, but overall you can't look at the defense and point the finger. I think they are doing a good job there. Are there are a few things we can improve on defensively, absolutely."
- Head Coach Doug Marrone
ON HIS ADVICE FOR EJ MANUEL
"Keep coming to work. We're playing in the NFL; guys are going to make plays and we just got to keep coming in to prepare just like we've always been. You can't change anything, you can't think it's the end of the world. That's just it. We've got to lean on each other and when we get opportunities to win games we've got to take advantage of them."
- RB Fred Jackson
ON THE DIFFICULTY OF SUNDAY'S LOSS
"I think it's all a part of maturing as a man and as a quarterback. Nobody said it was going to be easy, plain and simple. You know we can look back at this later in the season and be 14-2 you know who knows. I think the biggest thing right now for our team and for myself is to learn from it, accept it and be a man about it. Don't shy away from it. You know it is what it is we lost a game but at the same time come back even harder and be more prepared then we've ever been for Detroit."
- QB EJ Manuel
ON IF THE TEAM CAN BUILD ON PLAYING GOOD DEFENSE
"We believe in ourselves and we believe that we are a top-five defense in the NFL. We just got to go out there and prove it, prove it that we are this good. It's about situation football and getting off the field on defense."
- CB Leodis McKelvin
ON THE OFFENSE'S INCONSISTENT PLAY
"We just have to correct mistakes and get ready for next week. The offense just needs to find that killer instinct again. The defense played their tails off and they gave us the opportunity to put up points. We just have to find that killer instinct somewhere inside."
"Just take the Watt play, that's a huge play for them. We just have to correct those little things in order to be successful. Some games we look good and some games we don't. We are just trying to find the right line so we don't keep riding the roller coaster all season. There is no panicking in this locker room though. We believe in each other and we know we can have a good team. We just need to fix the little things and try to have a better next quarter than 2-2."
- RB CJ Spiller
ON HIS TOUCHDOWN CATCH
"I was man-to-man. I knew they were going to compress us and blitz. I just happened to beat my man inside and fight for the ball."
ON THE OVERALL PLAY OF THE WIDE RECEIVERS
"Just a lack of focus. We need to finish every play. No matter if the ball is low or high, we need to finish. We as wide receivers have to catch the ball."
- WR Sammy Watkins
ON THE DEFENSE'S TAKEAWAYS
"Yeah, you have to keep playing though. We hear a lot of stats. If you get three turnovers or four turnovers your chances of winning are higher. But, in this game anything can happen in one play. I mean, like when E.J. (Manuel) threw that bomb to Mike Williams. The game can change just like that. We have to keep playing like there is zero turnovers. You have to play like it's your last. You have to play like we're down and you have to keep fighting no matter what."
- S Aaron Williams
ON HIS 80-YARD TOUCHDOWN RECEPTION AND DJ SWEARINGER IN COVERAGE
"Ran right by him. Ran right by him. The play before, when we were in the end zone I ran right by him then too. We came right back out and ran the same play again and touchdown. On that last drive, you couldn't tell us we weren't going to score. We had the right leader in the huddle, he had the right play call and we just came up short."
- WR Mike Williams
