ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Bills coach Dick Jauron isn't thinking about New England's video spying woes. He's got plenty enough to worry about with his own winless team.
Jauron's sputtering Bills travel to New England on Sunday to take on the undefeated Patriots, a trip that comes at a time when Buffalo has struggled in losses to Denver and Pittsburgh while New England has dominated its two opponents, the New York Jets and San Diego.
``They're awfully good,'' Jauron said Wednesday. ``They're playing extremely well. We'll have to play a lot better than we've played to stay in that football game.''
Jauron didn't talk about the league's investigation into New England's video controversy other than to say, ``We don't do it.'' He's also not concerned about New England coach Bill Belichick stealing Buffalo's defensive signals.
``It's not an unfair advantage for a coach on the sideline to look across the field and say, 'Geez, he scratched his head and they blitzed. Let's see if they blitz the next time he scratches his head,''' Jauron said. ``Pretty soon you have something going.''
What Buffalo needs to get going is its offense, which has generated just one touchdown and one field goal in the first two games combined. The offense has gained just 407 yards, less than half of what the Bills defense has allowed.
``Yeah, we don't care anything about those stats,'' Belichick said. ``They don't mean anything.''
Well, maybe not to Belichick, but Bills receiver Lee Evans isn't buying it, saying Buffalo's offensive struggles need to go away quickly.
``The sooner that we can get our offense rolling the right way, then I think it'll suit everybody,'' said Evans, who has four catches for 22 yards. ``Last year, we kind of started out the same way. But as it went along we kept working and stayed together, and things started working out toward the end. We just have to keep on that same path, keep working.''
Buffalo's conservative offense has gotten plenty of criticism, with much of it falling onto offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild.
``We haven't played very well offensively for two weeks,'' Fairchild said. ``We haven't been productive. Our passing game in particular is out of synch a little bit, and we have to go in and fix it.''
So an already challenging game against the AFC East-leading Patriots becomes that much more daunting for a Bills team that has dropped four straight and five of seven going back to last season.
``We're sick of losing,'' tight end Robert Royal said. ``We spend too much time together away from our families, we spend too much time out there in that hot sun hitting each other each and every day. You want to win. That's the ultimate goal.''
