Titans coach Mike Vrabel on Bills defense:

“They play hard. That’s the first thing that I see on tape. They play with great effort, great enthusiasm and great energy. The scheme is the scheme. Sean (McDermott) and those coaches have them playing hard. They have three veteran guys that kind of lead them with Kyle (Williams), Jerry (Hughes) and Lorenzo (Alexander). These guys have played in some big games throughout the course of their 10-year career and 12-year career. It seems like they kind of lead that group and they’re playing just as hard as the rest of them. Then they have some young guys with some good talent.”

Bills coach Sean McDermott on Titans:

“I think they play good, strong defense and special teams. Then offensively, they do a really good job of running the football and taking shots down the field. Then, their screen game is probably the best in the league, so we have to be aware of that at all times.”
