Coach Tom Coughlin on being 4-2 at the bye:
I would like to be 6-0, but this is a hard-earned win. To be 4-2 right now and have the bye and to be an optimist if I may, maybe we do get some guys back after this two week period. That can help us. You have to take your hat off to the guys who went out today and played the way they did from a team concept, displaying once again the mental toughness that we always talk about. We are a team and whoever is called upon has to step up and make a play.
On the win over Buffalo in general:
No turnovers and plus-two, 122 yards rushing and outstanding play. I thought Eli played very, very well. We did have some opportunities to run the ball and Bradshaw did a good job. The offensive line did a good job. We made the plays when we had to make them.
We had a couple lapses on defense obviously for big plays but we settled in there and came out after the half and played much better. The drama obviously with the ball in the end zone and it is ruled no catch and then we get the field goal blocked. We don't come away with any points and that was quite a moment right there.
To come back down the field against a very good football team who does an outstanding job in all three phases really, that is a very good win at home.
On the team's overall effort today:
We always talk about complementing and the only thing that prevents me from talking about that is the (blocked) field goal. Otherwise, we did a pretty good job of tying up two pretty good return men as well.
