Inside The Bills | Fred Jackson on his vision and balance
"Vision has something to do with playing in the indoor league," he said on the radio show. "You had to find small creases in that game as a running back. Everybody’s right there on a fifty yard field, it’s so small. I think that helped fine tune my vision."

Inside The Bills | How Texans ‘D’ views Bills attack
"Offensively, they choose to play a little different football game than most pro teams play," said Texans head coach Gary Kubiak. "They’re five wide, spread the field, and we saw a bunch of that against Green Bay and saw what that did to us so that’s an issue for us moving forward this week. As far as going against them defensively, the best way we can help our defense is to stay on the field."

Inside The Bills | Run game battle
"They’ve got two great backs in Arian and Tate," said Fred Jackson. "It’ll be good for us. We know that they want to get their ground game started, and that’s a way to keep us off the field, and likewise. Between C.J. and I, if we can get the running game going, get some production out of us, we think we can give ourselves a good chance to do some things, too."

Inside The Bills | Wade Phillips has some tricks ready
"He does. That’s what makes it so much fun," said Watt, who has 9.5 sacks, 10 batted passes, 7.5 tackles for loss and 16 QB hits in seven games. "We’re making plays. We’re flying all over the field and we’re still not playing our best football. There are a lot of games left. We’ve got nine regular seasons left. We’re going to keep getting better every single week. You don’t want to peak too early. We’re still rolling. We’re still getting there."

Inside The Bills | Moore showing well
"Kyle has played well when he’s come in," said Kyle Williams. "He’s gotten some pressure for us and done some good things. He’s one of the guys that when you look at it, he’s playing fast. When you play fast you tend to be around the ball, you tend to make plays and that’s what he’s been doing."

Tasker Says Any One Player Can Make a Team a Winner | All Sports WNY
"Jackson asked Tasker if he had any suggestions for him to bring back to the team to help spur them on to victory and Steve had some unique words of wisdom. Basically Steve Tasker told Jackson that it was critical that players believed that every play and every player was important in winning a game. Tasker’s point was that you never know when a key block, catch, run or tackle could swing a game and the momentum your way."
