Patriots it’s all about the finish
Since then they’ve twice put themselves in position to beat the Patriots NFL Patriots jerseys again, but emerging with a win has proven elusive. “Yeah, it sticks in your craw,” said head coach Chan Gailey. “And if it doesn’t, something’s wrong with you. This season in Week 4 Buffalo’s aforementioned 21-7 third quarter lead evaporated in a barrage of points by the Patriots as they outscored the Bills 45-7 the rest of the way in a 52-28 loss.
That’s why the buzz word in Buffalo’s locker room this week was finish. “I talked to the team this morning about the same old term that we always use, ‘finish,’” said Gailey. “We had them in two ball games in a position to finish the game and win the game and we haven’t done it.We’ve just got to go learn to finish out the last three quarters, or finish out the last quarter and a half.
Over the last five meetings with the Patriots the Bills have committed a total of 10 giveaways in the final quarter. “The turnovers have been a big deal for us in the last few games versus them,” said Ryan Fitzpatrick. “That’s something you can’t do versus them if you expect to win.In five of their first eight games they’ve been shut out in the fourth quarter, and just once have they managed more than a touchdown. “The whole deal with that is we’ve been behind in three games really big and you go out there and throw it every snap, bad things happen and that’s when they end up getting field position and running the ball and scoring,” said Gailey. “That’s where the imbalance comes. ” Against the Patriots the Bills admit they may have gotten a bit complacent when they’ve jumped out to big leads early.
At times Buffalo’s success in the first half of games is thwarted by the Patriots’ adjustments in the second half. “We know they have a great coaching staff over there that’s able to make adjustments fast so we have to counteract that with our play,” said Jackson. “We’ve got to continue to go out and focus and execute what we have in our game plan.
