A season of sky-high expectations for the Buffalo Bills ended with a dud Sunday as the Bills lost to the Cincinnati Bengals, 27-10.  “No excuses. They beat us,” Bills coach Sean McDermott said. “Give credit to them. They outphysicaled us.”

Asked what his message was to the team, McDermott struck a forward-looking note.  “Keep their heads up,” McDermott said. “It’s a tough league and a tough business. You learn from things like that. This hurts. I’m proud of them for the way they handled the adversity they faced with class. … Right now this stings and I’m sure they all want a different result.”


After a second consecutive loss in the division playoff, McDermott said the Bills’ championship window remains open, when asked.  “This is what you work so hard for all offseason to get into the playoffs get to the Super Bowl and win it,” he said. “There’s no second-place trophies.”
