ORCHARD PARK,N.Y. (WIVB)– The Bills need to beat the Dolphins and get some help to end a 17-year playoff drought. There will 4 late games that could impact the Bills playoff chances.
Fans will be scanning the scoreboard and the players admit they make sneak a peek. LeSean McCoy says it hard not to look, “That’s natural. I probably shouldn’t. I’ll tell Coach [Sean McDermott] I won’t but I probably will just to see what’s going on.”
Bills injuries heading into the final game include: Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin (knee), guard Ryan Groy (illness), cornerback Shareece Wright and defensive tackle Kyle Williams (groin) will not practice Wednesday. Cornerback EJ Gaines (knee) and tight end Charles Clay (knee) will be limited in practice.
McDermott was asked about what it would mean for Kyle Williams to finally make it to the playoffs. He said it would mean the world to the city and to Kyle. “I also know that he wants that, but he also wants what comes along with that at the end of the journey, a championship”.
“it’s hard not to garvitate towards someone like Kyle (Williams)” McDermott said of his relationship with the 12-year veteran. He went on to say he respects him as much for who he is as a person as who he is on the field. McDermott said Williams keeps things light at practice, but has a switch that turns on when it’s time to get serious.
Coach was asked how winning this week and making the playoffs would mean to the roster. “The part of building this team the right way, this would be a step and as we continue to build and grow and build that solid foundation, changing the culture, changing the belief, we’re heading in the right direction”, McDermott said.
