The Bills are on the verge of unraveling.
Losers of three of their last five games and allowing 222 rushing yards to the Patriots on Monday Night Football, Bills safeties Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde were asked if allowing that many yards when the Patriots were exclusively calling running plays was embarrassing?
They did not appreciate the question and made it known.
Here's the exchange.
Poyer: “I mean, what kind of question is that?”
Hyde: “What are we doing, bro?”
Poyer: “What kind of question is that?”
Reporter: “It’s a question. The nation’s going to be criticizing you of (inaudible).”
Poyer: “I think we gave up seven points? Fourteen?”
Hyde: “14-10? Was that the final score?
Poyer: “We made stops when we had to. They made one big run. They’ve got good backs. They kept coming back to a couple runs. I don’t know how you want us to answer that question.”
Hyde: “That’s funny. We’ll remember that. I’ll remember that.”
As he walked off, Hyde still seemed upset by it.
“This feels like disrespect,” he said. “It’s all about respect. I come here every single week and I answer your questions truthfully, honestly. I appreciate you guys. Don’t do that. Just don’t do that.”
Buffalo is now the No. 7 seed in the AFC and will travel to Tampa Bay this week.
Poyer, 30, was originally drafted by the Eagles in the 7th round in 2013. Now, in his ninth NFL season and on his third NFL team, Poyer has been a very good safety.
For his career, Poyer has seven forced fumbles and 20 interceptions, five already this season tying a career-high.
