What a Sunday afternoon it turned out to be in Orchard Park, New York.

The Buffalo Bills fought (figuratively and literally) hard to earn a 24-21 win over Doug Marrone and the Jacksonville Jaguars at New Era Field. Outside of the third quarter brawl that saw Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette and Bills pass rusher Shaq Lawson get ejected from the game, it was the return of rookie quarterback Josh Allen to the lineup, where he threw for 160 yards and a touchdown, and rushed for a franchise record 99 yards to help lift Buffalo to a victory.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott joined Schopp and the Bulldog for his regular visit as part of Buffalo Bills Football Monday on WGR.

Here is some of what he had to say following his team's win:

 

McDermott on if he's a brass knuckle guy:

"I've been in a few fights in my life."

 

McDermott on a budding rivalry between Buffalo and Jacksonville:

"It's easy to see the connections with coach Marrone, last year's playoff game, and [the Jaguars] like to talk a little."

 

McDermott on not playing scared:

"I think it's important that players play not afraid to make a mistake. If they do it more than once, then we're going to have a different conversation."

 

McDermott on Robert Foster's growth and skillset:

"Speed is a commodity in this league. We felt like he had the potential to develop into a real receiver. You don't often find his combination of size, speed and toughness."

 

McDermott on yesterday's officiating crew:

"I am fine as long as they call it all both ways. They're human... as long as it evens out by the end of the game or the end of the season."
