Bills’ Micah Hyde wants to play vs. Dolphins, ‘make it hard’ for Tua Tagovailoa


#Orchard #Park, N.Y. — #Buffalo #Bills coach #Sean #McDermott has a decision to make before #Sunday’s home finale against the #Miami #Dolphins:

#Should he play his starters and if so, for how long?

#McDermott said on #Thursday that there is a plan for how the #Bills are going to utilize their roster on #Sunday, he’s just not going to give it away before kick off.

#Bills safety #Micah #Hyde, who’s celebrating his 30th birthday today, was asked what he thought about the possibility of sitting out this weekend.

“Honestly, it’s just nothing but competitive fire right now, for myself personally. I want to play,” #Hyde said. “Whatever decisions obviously (that are made), I have no control over that. #But I want to play and I want to go out there and compete. I feel like, it’s crazy that I’m saying this, it’s year eight (for me) and #Week 17 and I still feel like I still have stuff to work on. I’m trying to go out there, compete and get better, and get some momentum rolling into the playoffs.”

The #Bills have currently hold the no. 2 seed in the AFC and can lock it up officially with a win or a loss on #Sunday. #But that all depends on the #Pittsburgh #Steelers. #If they win and the #Bills lose, #Buffalo will fall to the no. 3 seed. #Steelers coach #Mike #Tomlin announced earlier this week that #Ben #Roethlisberger and some other notable starters will sit out against the #Cleveland #Browns, who are playing for their playoff lives. #Those two factors could make the decision to sit certain players easier for #McDermott, but #Hyde still wants to play.

“You can come up with a whole bunch of different outcomes and scenarios of what might happen or whatever in this game. #But ultimately as players and competitors, we want to play,” he said. “I want to be able to go out there and make plays and have that confidence going into the playoffs. #Whatever decision is made and whatever we do, I’m sure #Sean’s gonna have our backs for whatever the decision is.”

The #Bills are going to face rookie quarterback #Tua #Tagovailoa for the first time this season. #Ryan #Fitzpatrick tested positive for #Covid-19 on #Thursday and has been ruled out for the game.

#Hyde called #Tagovailoa a good decision maker and said the goal is to make things difficult for the rookie on #Sunday. The #Bills are allowing just 16.8 points per game during their current five-game win streak. #Tagovailoa has been benched twice this season since taking over the starting job from #Fitzpatrick.

“He doesn’t force throws. #He gets to his read and can check the ball down or whatever it may be and find open guys. #Good arm and accurate. #He puts the ball on the money when he throws it,” #Hyde said. “It’s just something where we have to try and go out there and make it hard for him. #Make the looks hard. #Any young quarterback in this league not having the #Tom #Brady experience, you go out there and you try and make stuff sticky for him.”
