Bills LB Tremaine Edmunds: Always good to make sure we’re not relaxed

The Bills heard boos from their home crowd as they made their way to the locker room at the end of the first half of Sunday’s game against the Dolphins and they couldn’t expect anything different while trailing an 0-6 team after 30 minutes.

The second half went better for the Bills as they intercepted Ryan Fitzpatrick to keep the Dolphins from adding points in the third quarter and went on to win 31-21 by scoring 22 points in the fourth quarter. It was not a pretty win, but it was still a win and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds believes the team should welcome the reminder to never let your guard down regardless of the opponent.

“It’s always good to keep us on our toes, make sure we’re never relaxed,” Edmunds said, via the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle. “No game is going to be easy; you have to bring it every week and come ready to work. It’s the NFL man, you’ve got to bring the ‘A’ game every day.”

The Bills welcome two more teams with losing records to New Era Field the next two weeks and we’ll see if the scare against the Dolphins leads to a change in their approach to facing Philadelphia and Washington.

  1. The Dolphins will end up beating someone, I’m just glad it wasn’t us this week. They always play teams tough in the first half and then find a way to lose the game. Yesterday we faced Dr. Jekyll Fitz. As a Bills fans we know there are two. Mr. Hyde who throws 4 picks is able to pop up at any time. The defense was clearly missing Milano yesterday, who makes a ton of plays in the run game. Overall another W and another step towards goal #1 of making the playoffs.

  2. Divisional games are always hard fought. Add in the fact that Fitz is so comfortable playing in Buffalo, and I felt this was going to be a close game. Good job by the Bills to scratch out an ugly win. They count just the same as a blowout in the standings. Now tighten things up with a better Philly team coming to town.

  3. Dolphins actually looked pretty good against the Bills defense. Nobody has scored 17+ points against them. Until yesterday.

  4. Bills are way overrated. Will finish 8-8 or 9-7. Bank on it.

    This team should have lost to the Jets. Bengals. Titans and Miami.

    They are not good overall. In the end this will all catch up to them. Bank on it.

  5. I heard today that the Bills schedule is one of the very easiest on league history, I think that says it all/

    LOL!!! Okay buddy. And yet they gave the Pats their toughest test of the year. To claim that they will go 3-7 or 4-6 the rest of the way is absolutely hilarious. The only thing that we can “bank on” is the fact that you are no Miss Cleo and would be horrible at gambling advice.

    I can say I dont think they will win a playoff game, but they will be a tough, tough out, especially if they play a game at home.

    But to say they shouldn’t have beat a team is absurd. The best teams find a way to win, even if they are trailing – which they were against all those teams. Their loss to NE was a reminder that nothing will come easy to any team they play – even if it isnt pretty.

    Lol

    You get a thumbs up just for the “miss Cleo “ reference

    The Bills are playing the same schedule as the Pats, Jets and Miami….I hear today that the Raiders are 3-3….and Carr fumbled again….

  10. Blaming the Bills winning on the schedule…Yes, decades of playing in TOM BRADY’S division is fine, but now we have a decent team and it’s ALL because of the schedule. Sorry, we don’t make it, we just play the games, and win the ones we are supposed to.

  11. Carr, what a joke… makes Joe look like well….Joe..

    Another Bills win is another step in the development of this team. Still a long way to go, but building from a strong foundation and locker room.

  12. Yah – The Bills almost let that one get away – But – They didn’t. 5-1. As far as the Bills only playing bad teams, The Pats played teams, other than the Bills, with a combined record of 7-23. SO by your logic the Pats are not a good team either??? There are no easy games in the NFL. 5-1 is 5-1 no matter what. You probably picked 3-4 wins before the season started. This team has a long way to go, but they’re going in the right direction. And that’s all that matter. Playoffs this year – Bank on that pal.
