It's 5-and-8 against 8-and-5.
"We're trying to finish at 8-8, and begin the offseason on a much higher note than we are right now," said Ryan Fitzpatrick. "I think that's what you look at now, going out there and winning these last three games. We've got a tough opponent this week. It will be a tough game for us."
It's a game against a very similar team, perhaps a team with more edge. The Bills and Seahawks have virtually identical offensive numbers. The major difference is that Seattle's defense has clamped down since day 1, currently ranked third in the league. Meanwhile the Bills' unit is just coming on.
"At the end of the day, it all comes down to W's," said Mario Williams. "No matter what you do individually, that is the most important thing. So, you just keep going out there and every game is a big game. You just keep getting after it. At the end of the day, you want the W."
The main advantage for the Bills is that Seattle has only two road wins so far this year. But that advantage is neutralized a bit, since it's the annual Toronto game.
"To me, football is football. It doesn’t matter where you play it you still have to go out there and get your job done. It is definitely different especially this time of the year when you have the bad weather, the coldness."
"We know that it isn’t home game we know our fans want it to be played at the Ralph," added Stevie Johnson. "It is what it is we play up in Toronto and that’s it."
And against a team who perhaps holds a model for what the Bills should aspire to.
