Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan, defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and safety Aaron Williams each recently expressed their resentment for the New England Patriots, but Tom Brady isn’t concerned about anything other than what happens on the field.
According to Alex Corddry of WHDH7, Brady offered a subtle reminder that games aren’t won during the week.
Brady on Rex Ryan's talking: not amused at all (laughs) doesn't matter to me, games are won by what you do over the week #Patriots

The comments from the Buffalo trio certainly weren’t unexpected because—no matter whether it’s right or wrong—the Patriots have slowly become the villains of the NFL.
However, the hatred might also be the product of New England’s dominance in the series. Unfortunately for the Bills, they need a couple more wins over the Patriots in order for this AFC East matchup to be actually considered a rivalry.
Buffalo won the most recent matchup (Dec. 2014), but since Brady took over at quarterback for New England in 2001, the Patriots are 25-3. Brady only missed the 2008 outings due to a torn ACL, but New England won those clashes anyway.
Additionally, the 58 touchdowns Brady has thrown throughout his career against the Bills is the most for the four-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback on any team.
No wonder Brady doesn’t care about the hate.
