No one expected the Bills to beat the Falcons on Sunday, and the Bills used that perceived lack of respect to their advantage. After topping the previously-undefeated Falcons in their new building on Sunday, the Bills celebrated with some crowing.
Via Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News, McCoy kept at it a few times before a member of the team’s P.R. staff advised him to tone it down a little.
It’s great that the Bills won, and it’s even better that they found a way to motivate themselves based on the notion that the Falcons (who could have been 1-2) were automatically headed to 4-0. Instead, both teams are 3-1, and the Bills (yes, the Bills) are all alone at the top of the AFC East.
