AFC East Notes: Bills, Jets, Patriots


Bills HC Sean McDermott said he took over play-calling duties from DC Leslie Frazier in Week 2, but still has confidence in Frazier’s coaching abilities.

We’re going to do whatever it takes to win,” McDermott said, via Jay Skurski. “Sometimes you’re able to get into a flow. Sometimes somebody else, you feel like, can get into a flow. That was really where it came from.”

McDermott added that he had a “good feel” of the Chargers’ offense in Week 2 and he will continue working closely with Frazier.

I had a pretty good feel for what they were trying to do offensively, I wanted to come out and take the series and see how it went. I was able to get in a flow, and Leslie was helping me the whole time. Like I said before, whatever direction we go, we’re going to work on it together. I have a lot of confidence in Leslie Frazier in terms of being a good defensive football coach.”



Patriots QB Tom Brady was asked about the team’s recent trade for WR Josh Gordon.

Well, we’ve had quite a few roster moves the first couple of weeks of the season with receiver,” Brady said, via Ryan Hannable of WEEI. “I am going to do what I have done the last couple of weeks and just try and work with whoever is there, and see if they can come in and make an impact and make a role on this team. It is really up to the individual what kind of role they can carve out for themselves. That is kind of how I feel.”

Brady went on to say that he is not placing any “projections and expectations” for Gordon.

I am not making — I hate to make projections and expectations. That’s not fair and I have never met Josh personally, just like I hadn’t met some of the guys who have come in the last couple of weeks. We’ll see how it goes this week. Hopefully he can work hard, put the team first and end up helping us in any role he can find for himself on the team.
