ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Two days later, and Bills Mafia is still irate over Kelvin Benjamin's overruled touchdown.
The Bills owner also jumped into the fray Tuesday: Terry Pegula was on "The Instigators" Tuesday morning, and he explained why he was so annoyed with the call and how he is frustrated with how the NFL handles instant replay in general.
"Replay was developed by this league to correct obvious mistakes and if you got to look at a play 30 times from five different angles and keep looking at it and looking at it and looking at it, you go with the call on the field. It's what the league's been doing ever since replay started," Pegula said. "I don't know what's going on, but we have to fix it — and I'm not saying that as the owner of the Bills, I'm saying it as a football fan, we can't have stuff like this happen in our league."
"What I make of that situation: A, I'm still at a loss. I have spoken with the league on it, and I remain at a loss," said Bills head coach Sean McDermott.
Pegula says he expects to talk with the league office about the play as well, but the Bills have to move past it as a team. Heading into the last game of the regular season, the squad is in must-win mode down this week in Miami for their matchup against the Dolphins. It all comes down to Week 17 for the Bills to end the 17 year playoff drought.
"This is an exciting time," McDermott said. "It's exciting for us in our first year as we continue to build and move towards our vision. It's exciting, I got to believe, for the city and in a position we haven't been in, this city hasn't been in in a number of years. To me there's an electricity about it this time of year to be in this type of situation."
However, the Bills postseason situation involves more than just them, leading to potential scoreboard watching Sunday for the Ravens, Titans and Chargers.
"The easiest answer to that is really if we don't win, it's not going to matter," McDermott said. "So focus on the task at hand and what's in front of us and that means, through all the scenarios, the one common theme is Bills have to win."
So how does the approach change knowing it all comes down to winning one game?
"We've kind of been in that mode all along and approaching it like it's must-win games," said Bills defensive coordinator Lezlie Frazier. "So I don't know if it'll be much different this coming Sunday. We've all been in that mindset, players and coaches, all along."
"Ever since the New England game we've been trying to push pretty hard, make sure we're winning every game," said Bills offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. "So I don't think so. I think we're trying to catch our matchups. We're trying to move the ball best we can run or pass."
McDermott's had experience with a win-and-need-help final week to the season, getting into the playoffs with the Eagles in 2008 after losses from two teams and a win. That's one of the scenario's he'll gladly relive on Sunday.
