“I was really proud of our team, after coming off what was a really tough loss for us at Carolina. It was a hard one to get out of your craw. ... This week, in practice, we challenged each other, coaches and players alike, to really make sure that we had the details. One of the things that, for the first time, a week ago, we didn’t do was out-physical the other team when we tackled them. Today, that changed. I thought it may have been our best tackling game of the season. The guys came ready to really get after them.” - Bucs coach Greg Schiano, on the victory

 

“Whether they score a million points or whether they score 10 points, if the offense on the other side of the ball can’t score on our side of the defense, they can’t win. That’s our motto, we just try to keep them out the end zone.” - Bucs DE Da’Quan Bowers, on the defense stepping up for Tampa Bay’s offense

 

“Run just run, don’t look back, just run.” - Bucs RB Bobby Rainey, on his 80-yard touchdown run

 

“That’s why it’s a team (game). When one side of the ball struggles, (the) other side is there to pick them up. We had their backs and they were able to put a couple points on the board. We played lights out and that was it.” - Bucs CB Johnthan Banks, on the defense stepping up for Tampa Bay’s offense

 

I never single myself out; it’s a team football game. I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for my team.” - Bucs LB Lavonte David, who had two interceptions and a sack to go with nine tackles

 

“(We’re) just trying to finish the season strong. We’ve got a great team and it hasn’t really shown. Now is the time to finish out the season strong, show people what we can really do. We slipped up here and there throughout the year, but I feel like we’ve got the team to make things happen and we can show that. I felt like we have showed that the last couple weeks. Just keep playing hard.” - Bucs LB Mason Foster

 

“A disappointing day in my performance. It starts with me, especially on offense. I’m the quarterback. I’m the leader. These guys feed off of me and I was supposed to facilitating the ball to these guys. I didn’t do a good job today — plain and simple. Got to get better — plain and simple. We’ve got to win games. I’ve got to get better as a quarterback. It’s my responsibility to do that and I have to go hard at everything during the week and just prepare even better.” - Bills QB EJ Manuel, who threw four interceptions

 

“I think it hurt, but at the same time we got to be more mentally tough to be — you know, it’s a long game. You got to be able to bounce back from that.” - Bills S Jairus Byrd, on Bucs RB Bobby Rainey’s 80-yard touchdown run 18 seconds into the game
