The Buffalo Bills are on to the Los Angeles Chargers, and in the midst of preparing for a road date with their reeling Week 16 opponent. While these two teams share a kindred spirit from the old days of wildly entertaining AFL football, their current seasons share little in common.
On Wednesday, December 20, wide receiver Gabe Davis and middle linebacker Terrel Bernard met with members of the local media. Embedded below are both Davis and Bernard’s interviews in full.
Wide receiver Gabe Davis
Something that’s been on minds of many Bills fans concerns Davis’ use in recent weeks. That is to say, his
Gabe Davis spoke about the challenges he’s working through in his role this season:
“It’s not that easy, but you know I gotta do it. I gotta be and do what my team asks me to do and all I can do is control what I can control. But, you know, I’m doing good in the blocking game and... real confident in that.”
On whether Davis and Josh Allen are working on anything in particular, he answered:
“Me and Josh had a conversation and, you know, again, that’s what the game brings. You know, we both know that we want each of us to be successful — my success is his success, and vice versa when he’s throwing me the ball. So, it’s not that we don’t want it to happen, but you know, the league is tough and all the stars gotta align for stuff to go your way all the time.”
Apart from that, Davis responded to questions about facing a Chargers team that gave up a historic amount of production through the passing game, focusing on stacking wins, the pride he and the team takes in seeing what James Cook is doing now.
Plus, Davis delves a bit into what he sees needed corrected on offense and by whom, while navigating the transition from Ken Dorsey to Joe Brady.
All this and more as Davis and the team get ready to face a Chargers squad that — like the Bills, a team with their backs against the wall — has pride to suit up for, and plenty of reason to play their best on Saturday.

Middle linebacker Terrel Bernard
Bernard addressed the unique nature of facing an opponent the team doesn’t often face, noting that they expect a similar style of offense out of the Chargers as they faced against the Cowboys.
Bernard also spoke about the importance of continuing to build on defense, and constantly raising their standard instead of reaching a plateau. Bernard responded to what it would mean for defensive tackle DaQuan Jones to return this season, plus the huge benefit of having so many players see significant reps due to injury.
Bernard also responded to questions about facing a relatively unknown quarterback in Easton Stick, and more.
