Sean McDermott puts emphasis on taking advantage of opportunities
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WHEC) — Next to the loss in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Buffalo Bills scored their fewest points of the season on Monday night in a 14-10 loss to the New England Patriots.
Despite a few chances to take the lead, including their final drive when they entered the red zone, Buffalo failed to win back-to-back games again. They’ve traded wins and losses every week since Oct. 10.
Despite questions about coaching and game plans, Sean McDermott didn’t subscribe to the notion that he was out-coached by Bill Belichick. Instead mentioned that the team didn’t convert on the opportunities they needed to.
"Whether it’s Bill or anybody else, they beat us, right," he asked rhetorically. "You sit here and you tell me that when we start with an average starting field position of the 40-yard line and he starts with the 23-yard line. I’m rounding up in both cases. And we were 1-4 in the red zone and they were 0-1 in the red zone? You give me that ahead of time, I like my chances. I like my chances a lot. With all due respect, I don’t think it’s a Bill Belichick type of thing, it’s what are you doing with the opportunities you got?"
Buffalo visits Belichick’s former QB Tom Brady and Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday afternoon at 4:25 p.m.
