Although the Buffalo Bills have struggled to put up points offensively this season, the strong defensive play has been able to keep the team in games as of late. However, this Sunday's result for the Bills was an ugly one on both sides of the ball.

The 2-4 Bills went on the road to Indianapolis to face a 1-5 Colts team that had lost four straight games, but ended up getting dominated in a 37-5 loss at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Bills got out-scored 24-0 in the second quarter, and the offense could only muster a total of three points. As for the defense, which had played its best football over the past few weeks, they gave up 376 yards of total offense, including 220 yards in the run game.

Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams joined Schopp and the Bulldog for his weekly appearance to reflect on the rough loss to the Colts, Derek Anderson's play as the starting quarterback, and being back home after being on the road for four of the last five games.

Here is some of what Williams had to say: 


On the Colts' attack plan involving more running than they usually do: 

"Just based on what you've seen and what your breakdowns are. There were a couple of different formations, different personnel packages had us in different things. At the end of the day, we have to be able to adjust on the fly and move quickly and it just wasn't good enough." 


On the Bills having played four road games in five weeks, with three of those as losses: 

"We're not where we wanted to be... We've had a tough first half, we've been on the road a lot, we're kind of coming home. A good bit of our back half of the season is at home and we want to play well at home... The only way to get through it is to work your tail off and work your way through it."


On the Bills lacking consistency week-to-week: 

"Consistency is a byproduct of preparation and effort during the week. Never getting complacent and feeling comfortable where you're at. We all have to be better week in and week out to sustain that success. It's not just going to happen because we did it last week or we did it the week before."


On Derek Anderson starting at quarterback after only one week with the team: 

"We've had some unique situations with different guys rolling in and out at the position... It's not ideal, kinda an unfair deal for him. He's coming in, he's going to to help Josh grow and learn. Josh gets hurt, he has to come in and play a week later."

"Ultimately we all have to be better as a football team. Derek did some good things, some things he'd like back."


On facing Tom Brady next Monday: 

"He knows a lot of what you're doing. There has to be a lot of disguise, you have to be sound in what you're doing as a team, takes a whole sixty minutes to compete and have an opportunity beat those guys."
