FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The video wasn't a blockbuster for the New England Patriots. And the director wasn't happy.
Linebacker Tully Banta-Cain had to relive his roughing the passer penalty that helped set up a touchdown and a 7-7 tie in the second quarter.
"The week's a little bit gloomier than normal," Banta-Cain said, "but we're a resilient team and Bill's a resilient coach and he understands that we can't dwell too much on what happened last week. But, at the same time, that bad taste is still in our mouth and we want to get it out."
"They're obviously a good team so he's not blowing smoke or anything like that," Welker said. "He's just making sure we're staying on top of things."
"We don't take any game lightly," said Banta-Cain, who had five of his 10 sacks last season against the Bills. "Looking at last year, both games were pretty close. Buffalo always gives us a good fight."
"I hate to lose. I want to win every game. It's impossible, but that's just me," he said. "I was just kind of frustrated, but we can learn from it."
So the Patriots review video, study the game plan and work hard at practice. And as the week goes on, the mood lightens.
"You never know what to expect from Bill," Banta-Cain said. "We're always pretty intense around here on how we approach games. So there's really never a light moment unless we create it ourselves within the players. But when it comes to Bill, it's all about business."
And this year they've been outscored 39-14 after intermission.
"We have to know how to finish games," Wilfork said. "That's one thing we want to get turned around quick."
"No," Banta-Cain said. "Sometimes he's even more cutthroat after a win because, let's face it, you get a win (and) some guys feel they can be complacent or kind of let up a little bit. So you never want to be too high or too low. So Bill does a good job, whether it's a win or a loss, to keep our heads in the game."
