Hyde: 'No one is backing down; We're 3-1, we're fine'


The Buffalo Bills suffered their first loss of the 2019 season on Sunday following a tough defeat to their AFC East rival New England Patriots at New Era Field.

While the Buffalo offense struggled with turnovers and some costly mistakes to a stout Patriots defense, the defense had a banner day against Tom Brady and the formidable New England offense. Brady was limited to just 18-of-39 passing for 150 yards and an interception, while the overall offense was held to just 224 yards and nine points scored.

Bills safety Micah Hyde was a big part of the Bills defense keeping the game close all game. He was the player who grabbed Brady's only interception on the day, and he did so on a key third down play inside the Bills' five-yard line.

Hyde joined Mike Schopp and the Bulldog on Monday afternoon for his regular Buffalo Football Monday appearance.

Here's some of the what he had to say:


Hyde on stopping Tom Brady:

"We understand the things they do well. You have to watch the whole history of how we've played them. A lot of things repeat themselves. When we see them again, we'll give them another hard fought battle."


Hyde on losing to the Patriots:

"We feel good. It was a hard fought loss. We know what we have here. No one is backing down; we're 3-1, we're fine... These are the kind of games everyone gets worked up for. We just gotta bounce back."


Hyde on the Bills success vs. the Patriots offense:

"People can watch the last 2-3 years of Bills vs. Patriots. It's a chess match... It's a lot deeper than Xs and Os. I wish we could be vocal about gameplans. I think a lot more people would understand the game of football. But, I can't tell you because we play New England again."


Hyde on Bill Belichick:

"I know players who've played there and it's a lot of hard work. He's a hard working, old-style coach. He's going to coach his team not to beat themselves. That's why they've been so successful. We beat ourselves with some special teams, turnovers, and penalties. New England doesn't do that stuff."
