Commanders WR Terry McLaurin on expectations

After so much underachievement in recent seasons, one could forgive Washington Commanders fans and players for getting a little too carried away with their 2-0 start. There is a long way to go and anything can happen, but taking things one game at a time in pursuit of achieving short and long-term goals remains the best course of action.

The Commanders are going to get a stern test of their credentials this afternoon against the Buffalo Bills, who are expected to mount another postseason challenge in 2023 despite residing in a hugely competitive division themselves. When discussing the future, veteran wide receiver Terry McLaurin was eager to keep everyone's feet on the ground based on his comments via the team's website.

"I definitely think it feels really good in here to be 2-0 when you start off the season. Two wins, one on the road, one at home, you got a lot of momentum continuing from the offseason, which I feel like we've had. You still don't wanna look too far ahead. We got a really good Bills team coming in, and we're looking forward to that challenge."

Washington isn't widely regarded as a potential playoff force even after their two-game winning run to begin the season. However, if they managed to pull off another major upset versus the Bills at a rowdy FedEx Field this afternoon, it's a different story.
