ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — After each game, particularly wins, Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott reminds his players to remain “humble and hungry.”

Following their 44-34 win Sunday over the NFC West-leading Seattle Seahawks, they remained true to that philosophy.

Left tackle Dion Dawkins was asked about the significance of Buffalo’s 7-2 start to the season — its first since 1993 — and whether it meant anything that the team was able to do something it hadn’t done since Hall of Famer Jim Kelly led the Bills to four straight Super Bowls.

Dawkins, also a team captain, didn’t think so.

“It really doesn’t mean anything. I don’t want to compare ourselves to Jim Kelly’s era, Thurman Thomas, like, those guys are legends,” he said. “We are far from them. They hold the crown. They are the kings. But it just shows we are capable of doing whatever we want to do. We have all of the pieces here. And we just have to continue to do things right on and off the field.
