The team arrived in Detroit on Friday afternoon and practiced that night for the first time all week (this happening in a day where players walked to the facility and others were picked up on snowmobiles). In meeting with the media afterward, coach Doug Marrone was extremely thankful to his squad's temporary hosts.
Marrone also expressed the issues the Bills are dealing with, saying he could give "a long list of obstacles." When prompted again by a reporter, he replied: "We're not playing at home; we're not practicing at home; and we're not going home at night to our families. I mean, I'm being honest. I'm not trying to make a joke."
"Nobody's been in this situation," Orton said. "We have to trust each other, rely on each other to go out and compete."
