Buffalo Bills linebacker Brandon Spikes admits that his side couldn't back up his talk of beating the New England Patriots in their NFL clash on Sunday.

Buffalo Bills linebacker Brandon Spikes has admitted that he and his teammates couldn't back up his talk in the off-season about handing two losses to his former side the New England Patriots.

The 27-year-old proclaimed that the Bills would defeat Bill Belichick's side in their two AFC East matches in the 2014 season, but they fell to a 37-22 loss in their first meeting of the campaign on Sunday at Orchard Park.

"I think I talked a lot of trash in the off-season and we weren't able to back it up. That's what hurts me the most," Spikes told reporters. "I pride myself on being a man of my word and it just let the city down. It's just unfortunate.

"We worked so hard in OTAs, the off-season, training camp, just for this game. It was disappointing. Just come out and trip it off like that. They played well. I'll give my hats off to them.

"[Tom] Brady came out and - it don't surprise me. He's a competitor. He's always looking to get better."

The Bills are now 3-3 in their season following their defeat to the Patriots.
