In Monday's team meeting, Rex Ryan spelled it out for the players, explaining how they can take control of the AFC East by beating the Bills and Patriots over the next two weeks.
"He was saying, 'Guys, we're in the perfect position right now,'" G Matt Slauson said.
Slauson agreed. In the midst of sharing his reasoning, he nonchalantly chalked up a W this weekend over the Bills.
"I mean, the Patriots lost (to the Steelers) and the Bills are about to lose," said Slauson, alluding to Sunday's game in Buffalo. "Then, we've got the Patriots. As long as we can take care of our stuff, we're going to be in the driver's seat."
Bulletin-board material for the Bills? We'll find out eventually
