ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills have lost five of their past seven games, and their chances of making the playoffs are a slim 2 percent, according to FiveThirtyEight.com. However, defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is confident the 6-7 Bills will defeat the winless Cleveland Browns this Sunday.Thats just a guarantee, Dareus told The Buffalo News on Wednesday. We aint gonna be that team. Were not going to be the team that busts [the Browns losing streak] on them, no. Nobody in the league wants that to happen [to them], no.Browns offensive lineman Joe Thomas said the team will try hard to prove Dareus wrong.I hate that guy, Thomas said jokingly. Im gonna kill him. Thats great. The mindset were going to have is just the same. Were gonna make them the team that we break the streak on. I think thats, as a football player, our competitive nature, and thats the way we train ourselves to think every single week.Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III said he knows the Bills will bring their best game.Everyones trying to kick us when were down, so we just have to go take it, Griffin said. Were going to get everybodys best shot because nobody wants to lose to us.Elsewhere in the Bills locker room Wednesday, wide receiver Sammy Watkins suggested that coach Rex Ryan could lose his job as soon as Monday if the Bills lose to the Browns.We know if we lose, something crazy might happen immediately, Watkins said. So we need to go out there and win this game.After hosting Cleveland on Sunday, the Bills wrap up their regular season with games against the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets. Watkins said Wednesday he believes if the Bills win their remaining three games and finish with a 9-7 record, Ryan could keep his job as coach -- although he later admitted that was speculation on his part.That [9-7 record is] kind of the goal that were pushing for, he said.Watkins also lamented the possibility of the Bills firing Ryan and embarking on their seventh head-coaching search since their last playoff appearance in 1999.If everybody leaves, most likely its going to be a new start. You dont want to just start over, he said. Well be in probably the same situation the Browns are in, or any team that has younger and younger guys. For me, its trying to build on what we already got and move forward.Im not saying [a coaching change would be] a setback. I want to move forward. I dont want to keep going through this craziness and switching [offensive coordinators]. That kills a player and the team and the organization. Im trying to move forward and trying to work [on] what I need to work on. I feel like the coaches that we got can do it. Its all the mentality. We as a team, coaches, everything have to [effort to do] whatever we need to do to win. And thats it.ESPN Browns reporter Pat?McManamon contributed to this report Fake Off White Air Max 90 .
