Break Provides Extra Prep Time for Fitzpatrick
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - No football for the Bills on Sunday means a break for the team and the fans alike from the ups and downs of what's been a rocky start to the season to say the least.
The bye week for the Bills - a time to relax, recharge and re-evaluate what led to the disappointing 3-4 record and where they go from here. The team had only one practice during the week, that was on Wednesday.
But just because they're away from One Bills Drive doesn't mean they can't begin preparing for next week's matchup against the 6-1 Texans.
"I will watch tape," quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said. "It is great now with being able to get it at home on the iPad or wherever it is. A lot of that, for me, will probably be Houston stuff rather than looking at our whole season. It is a good time, mentally and physically, to be able to get away for a little bit, to be able to rest up and heal all of your wounds."
The Bills get back to work on Monday, gearing up for the trip to Houston next weekend.
