Buffalo Bills defensive backs Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde were not happy with a reporter at the postgame press conference.
Monday night was not a good one for the Buffalo Bills. Facing off against the rival New England Patriots, they had the chance to climb up the AFC East standings. Instead, they lost 14-10 to their rivals, who ran the ball 46 times on 49 plays called.
After the game, Bills defensive backs Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde was asked by a reporter about whether they were embarrassed by the run defense in the game. Both Poyer and Hyde were not happy about the question, and they had a testy exchange with the reporter. You can check it out in the videos below, courtesy of TSN.
Bills: Jordan Poyer, Micah Hyde not happy with question asked by reporter
The duo were not pleased by that question, with Hyde calling it “funny” and that he’ll “remember that.”
New England decided to run the ball at will in windy Orchard Park. Rookie quarterback Mac Jones threw the ball just three times on the night, with the running backs running the ball for a total of 222 yards on the remaining 46 plays. Damien Harris picked up 111 of those yards on 10 attempts, with one carry going for a 64-yard touchdown.
Monday night’s score was close and the Bills had opportunities to potentially win the game, specifically in their last two drives in the red zone. Buffalo opted for a field goal on their penultimate trip, which sailed wide right. On the final drive, quarterback Josh Allen’s pass to Gabriel Davis was incomplete after getting blitzed by the Patriots defense.
Buffalo is far from out of the playoff race, but they will need to pick up some wins to make a berth attainable. Next week, they face the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Then in Week 16, the Bills face off against the Patriots one more time.
