DETROIT - After being snowed in then shipped out, the Bills played their most complete and dominating game of the season.
"It just showed that this team will keep fighting," wide receiver Sammy Watkins said. "We got a great organization that puts us in situations to win. And we got this win for Buffalo and for our families that are back home."
"Shout out to the Buffalo community," running back Boobie Dixon said. "That was definitely for them. It's been a struggle all week. I know they're back home struggling and we're about to go back home and fight with them. That was definitely for them."
"I told someone coming off the field, this team, the way these guys compete, we'll play in a parking lot," defensive tackle Kyle Williams said. "Does that mean we're invincible? No. But we'll go and we'll compete and when adversity's at our back, we're going to step up and fight."
Tight end Scott Chandler celebrated his second quarter touchdown by pretending to shovel snow in the end zone.
"It wasn't really something that I'd thought out too much, but I scored and I thought I need to do something that'll show the people back in Buffalo we're thinking about them," Chandler said. "Broke a couple shovels this week shoveling snow. One was my mine, one was my neighbor Steve's. And so that was the only shovel I had was the one I used right there. We just wanted to show the people back in Buffalo we're behind them. And we want to be a representation of them, tough and resilient and that's what we were today."
En route to their route of the Jets, the Bills ended their 21 drive touchdown drought. The team found the end zone in the red zone for the first time since their first meeting with the Jets about a month ago.
"Offensively, we went back and were just going to pick a couple concepts and just work on them and that's what we're going to live with and just get better each week at," head coach Doug Marrone said.
"Coach Marrone's message to the offense was go out there and take it, trust in each other and trust in the system and I think we probably did a better job of that than anytime throughout the year so far," quarterback Kyle Orton said.
"We got a lot that we have to get done. We don't want to rely on anybody else," running back Fred Jackson said. "We have to take care of our business and we were able to do that tonight. We got to continue to build on that. Continue to play well. Continue to put up points. Our defense is doing a tremendous job. Special teams is doing a tremendous job. And on offense we have to keep getting better."
It's another shortened week for the Bills as they welcome the Browns to Ralph Wilson Stadium, which team president Russ Brandon said will be ready come next Sunday.
