Enemy Intel: The Bills are talking about the Texans

Bills head coach Sean McDermott on Texans QB Deshaun Watson: "He's playing at a very high level. He's accurate, he gets them in and out of plays at the line of scrimmage, he does a lot just in terms of generating plays. Off the field and on the field he's one of the better weapons in the game."

Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier on Watson: "He presents a lot of different problems. His throwing ability along with his escapability as well. There are times when you watch him on tape and people have him hemmed up, but somehow, someway he gets out of it. On the run, he makes some very accurate throws. He presents a lot of problems to defenses. He's really the straw that stirs the drink for their offense."

Bills CB Kevin Johnson on Watson: "You see his game style. We're definitely going to have to be on their receivers until the whistle blows."

Bills S Micah Hyde on Watson: "He can do everything. He beats you with your arms and legs. I don't think he gets enough credit for how smart he is and how he can read coverages. Then when the play breaks down that's when I feel like he makes his plays the most."

McDermott on Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins: "When you when you look up the word 'receiver' in the dictionary – I mean, he's got unbelievable hands, unbelievable work with the quarterback, understands the game."

Frazier on Hopkins: "DeAndre is a tremendous receiver. He's an All-Pro player and he's capable of having one of those explosive games. We have a lot of respect for what DeAndre has done in our League and what he's continued to do this season."

Johnson on Hopkins: "He's an excellent receiver. He has great hands. Great competitiveness. He's been very consistent throughout his career in the NFL."

Frazier on Texans WR Will Fuller V: "He's definitely a vertical threat. A guy you have to pay attention to on the field. He adds for sure to what they do on the offensive side of the ball."

McDermott on the Texans offensive line: "They're really good. You could tell the makeover they made from last year, they play well together, they do a good job in both the run and the pass game, they set up the screens well. So, they've been very effective this year overall in helping their offense."

Bills RB Devin Singletary on the Texans defensive front: "They're very good. They run to the ball. They cause problems in the run game. We're definitely going to have to be on our details and win that line of scrimmage battle."

McDermott on Texans DE J.J. Watt: "The world knows what type of player J.J. Watt is. He does an incredible job, hard guy to stop. I don't think you ever stop him, you just hope you can get through the game trying to go against him and manage what you can. He's a great player."

Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll on Watt: "He's an exceptional football player. He's been an All-Pro for a variety of reasons. He's dynamic. He can affect the pass game. He can affect the run game. On the field, he's a beast and you've got to have a plan for him."
