LEFT TACKLE MARCUS MCNEILL
On what he thinks of how the Bills played
They came out there alright. They're a good team, a real good team. It was their day. We had two turnovers and they had zero, so whenever you play a good team like that you can't turn the ball over. We're going to continue to work on that and make sure that doesn't happen again.
LT Marcus McNeill
I don't think we had our worst game of the season, definitely not. We had some positive, but when you're playing a good team like that you can't make big mistakes. And a couple mistakes cost us big in this game and we couldn't fight back.
On the team being 3-4 after Week 7
No, 3-4 definitely doesn't sound good to us, but you can't become an undefeated team and you can't win them all in one week. We've go to work on this week getting back to .500.
On sitting out for a few plays
It was just a little minor ankle sprain. I wanted to go and get it taped up to make sure everything was OK, but it was nothing serious at all. I came back and finished out the series and I wasn't having too much of a problem after that.
WIDE RECEIVER VINCENT JACKSON
On the power outage
There was a little dead time and guys were trying to keep warm on the sideline. I think it was the first time a lot of guys had experienced that, but they did a good job managing the game. I guess it was a little vintage, but it seemed like the game and especially the first half went pretty fast. Obviously they weren't having any TV timeouts. (The officials) definitely kept things moving.
WR Vincent Jackson
We're going to analyze this one real quick tonight and put it behind us because we're going to have a long week ahead of us.
On coming out strong in the second half
Whether it happens at home or on the road, you don't want to be down at the half. We tried to get off to a better start this week than we did last week, but we couldn't do that and you try to play four quarters. We tried to come out with a better gameplan in the second half and I thought we moved the ball pretty well in the third quarter.
More on moving on from the loss
It's a long season. There are still a lot of games to be played yet. We're going to try to win our division and get into the playoffs.
On the closeness of the game
Absolutely, you believe every game is winnable especially when it was close early in the fourth quarter. Any time a game is like that you believe you have a chance. We just have to take care of the ball and put ourselves in a better position at the end.
WR Malcom Floyd
On how he handled the power outage and whether it affected his play
I don't think so. I made sure I stayed warm, we just kept our blood flowing. We didn't know when it was going to come back on.
On being 3-4 after Week 7
It's still early in the season. We're going to go back in on Monday and learn from our mistakes, and take this long trip out to London.
INSIDE LINEBACKER MATT WILHELM
On how the defense played with no clock for part of the game
It definitely affected our timing, because pressuring them was a big part of the game plan.
On how the team played after the clock/power came back
It was slowly but surely, once we had the play clock that's what really matters. We were able to time some things up. We didn't get after the quarterback the way we liked, and he kind of had his time to just pick us apart with short little dink and dunk type of routes. I don't know, the few times we thought we were going to get into our flow and be able to take the momentum of the game and they just took it right back.
LB Matt Wilhelm
It's frustrating. We're not making any excuses. I think Norv (Turner) said it best, it wasn't the time change, it wasn't that they were more physical than we were; it's not that we weren't prepared, we were all those things. It's just little things, it's individual stuff, tackling, gap control, I'm sure offensive line protection, staying on your man with regards to the run. It's the basic things. We're struggling at some points throughout the game, and we're letting teams that we should control or beat in some regards hang around long enough and they found those weaknesses in our defense or offensively and they exploit them.
On how the power outage effected play calling
Defensively it was getting the plays in, and then personnel in. Obviously we play off of what the offense does so we're a step behind in that. As I mentioned as well, another big issue was the play clock. The quarterback's getting a ten second, when he has ten seconds remaining on the play clock, and the defense we're disguising and holding a blitz, things of that sort are our mainstay on how we try to confuse a quarterback and it kind of took that away. I think as the game went on we never really got into the flow of things because of maybe some of those stoppages.
On the defense's play later in the game
We were able to get aggressive again. We were able to disguise some coverages. As you could see after halftime we came out, and I think maybe we got one first down, but we got off the field in four of five plays. We went down and scored, we thought we had the momentum; we had the lead by a point. Then, they go with that hurry-up offense and they just move the ball down the field and I think just slowly but surely they took the momentum back. The crowd got into the game, and they get the touchdown to take the lead. I think at that point we felt like we were on the ropes and we needed to make a play. We had to be the aggressor and that's our problem.
