McDermott: "This team personifies the city of Buffalo"

January 1, 2018

In his first year as head coach of the Buffalo Bills, Sean McDermott and his team have broken the 17-year playoff drought. McDermott and the Bills will face former Bills head coach Doug Marrone and the Jacksonville Jaguars, Sunday at 1pm. Despite it being New Years Day, it's still a Buffalo Football Monday and McDermott joined Mike Schopp to talk about the accomplishment his team achieved, as well as looking forward.

Here's some of the best from McDermott's visit.

On watching the Ravens lose, after beating Miami:
"I think it was a neat environment to be a part of with our team. Being able to watch the final moments of the Bengals game knowing how important that was for us to get in and needing that game. And then just to experience the reception we got when we came home."

On whether Kyle Williams would've had another chance to score, if it failed:
"He gets one shot and that's it. And he needs to work on his touchdown celebrations too."

On Bengals coach Marvin Lewis:
"Teams get help in all different ways and forms throughout the year. We were needing some help at the end. I just thought that the way that his team played really personifies him as a coach, he's had one heck of a career."

On his team's work all season:
"We've got a good group of guys, they work extremely hard and they've done so all year long. They battle, everyone's told them they aren't good enough and they continued to battle, win or lose. That's the great part of our football team, and our organization."
