They haven't quite been the "cardiac kids," but the Bills have certainly held fans' attention to the bitter end each week so far. Every game, except for that Thursday night blowout in Cleveland, has been a close one. The Bills' three wins have come by a combined six points. And the other three losses? By margins of two, seven, and three in overtime. So that may be taking a toll on some fans; especially coach Doug Marrone.
"I’m not going to lie to you, it’s not adding years to my life or any of our fans as they watch it, but at the same point we’re a team that’s fighting and trying to get over this," he said Monday. "We haven’t been in the playoffs in twelve years. We know it’s out there, it’s not the elephant in the room, we talk about it all the time. We’re fighting, fighting, fighting and that’s what we’re going to keep on doing. At some point it’s going to start to break. It’s going to break to go over the top. Once you get there, now it’s another challenge to be able to stay there. That’s what you’re seeing right now."
The Bills begin preparations for the Saints on Wednesday.
