It’s been almost two weeks since the Buffalo Bills lost to the New England Patriots, but you wouldn’t know it listening to Rex Ryan.
The Bills head coach is always more than willing to talk about his AFC East rival, and Tuesday was no different. Although the Bills are preparing for the New York Giants, the coach’s news conference featured his seemingly weekly segment about the Patriots.
In this latest edition, Ryan claimed the Patriots were going out of their way to “embarrass” the Bills on the way to a 40-32 win in Week 2.
“I think it was better for me to get a real grasp of our team and how we are and all that type of stuff. And our emotions got the better of us,” Ryan said, per ESPN.com. “But what I love was how we battled back. And when a team was clearly trying to embarrass us, we stood up to them and said, ‘All right, here we are, we’re gonna give you our best shot, regardless of what the scoreboard is.’ And we scored three touchdowns to their three points.”
This isn’t the first time Ryan’s brought up the subject this week. He said similar things Monday, too.
“We know it, everybody knows it, I am the only guy that will admit it,” Ryan said Monday, according to The Buffalo News. “But we knew it. And it was like, OK, this is who we are. I can tell you this — we are a very talented team. Especially when we have our guys out there. We will see how it goes.”
Ryan and the Bills will renew their rivalry with the Patriots on Monday, Nov. 23 at Gillette Stadium.
