Hyde says the Bills now know how to contain Lamar Jackson

By WGR 550 SportsRadio

The Buffalo Bills are now 9-4 following their 24-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, who many consider to be the best team in the National Football League.

The Buffalo defense played tremendous against Baltimore's No. 1 ranked offense, furthering the talk about the Bills being one of the best defenses in football.

Bills safety Micah Hyde has been an integral part of that defense this season, and he joined Schopp and the Bulldog as part of his regular appearance on Buffalo Bills Football Monday, on WGR.

Here are some of Hyde's thoughts during his visit with the guys:


Hyde on preparing for the Ravens:

"I probably watched more film leading up to this game than any ever. The good thing is we limited Lamar [Jackson] on big plays. We limited him to a few seven-yard runs, but not much more. They keep it simple for Jackson."


Hyde on Cole Beasley drawing pass interference on the final drive:

"If I was a [defensive back], I'd for sure say something. Going against [Rob Gronkowski] a few times, he's a push off guy. One time in New England it got called, [Tom] Brady was yelling I was like, 'Come on guys, this is ridiculous.'... The good wide receivers in the league know how to draw pass interference. They'll draw you in and wrap their hands around to make it look like they're going for the ball."


Hyde on Baltimore blitzing Josh Allen all day:

"It makes it tougher on corners, but it also makes it easier because you know the ball is coming out right away... They were comfortable with the matchups. That's why you saw them do that."


Hyde on playing Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football:

"Anytime you get into a primetime slot, that means you're doing well. Huge game for us and them... December football. Sunday night. That's what you dream about. We had the same situation against Denver, a guy that didn't have too many starts. They've been winning, have to give [Devlin Hodges] credit for that."
