Bills offense evolves into versatile attack -
"Chan is a creative offensive coach and we like it. We’re not predictable and that’s how you create a good offense," said Eric Wood. "Some weeks we’re going to run the ball a ton, some weeks we’re going to pass the ball a ton. A lot of it has to do with what the defense is going to give us. I don’t think you can stamp this offense and say we’re a particular type of offense. We’re just trying to be whatever is going to work."

Inside The Bills | Lindell=Maytag repairman?
"It’s pretty rare," Lindell told us. "You go through a couple of years where it’s maybe three-four games, I think even two years ago I didn’t any attempts at the beginning of the year. It feels a little funny to see a score without field goals. But that’s all right. We’re scoring touchdowns, and that’s fine, too. If they’re going to score four and five touchdowns every game, I don’t think we can complain about that."
