Buffalo Bills linebacker Arthur Moats is back!

For the second straight season, Moats has returned to answer your questions each week during the regular season. From his favorite color to if he likes trampolines, no subject is off limits in this season’s edition of “Crossing The Moats”.

Remember, if you want your question answered by Arthur Moats on a future edition, tweet them to @QC_Sports, post a message on our facebook page, or leave a comment on this page! New editions will be up every Thursday evening!

1. What is your pregame ritual?

 Arthur: I listen to a variety of music from gospel, rap, and rock. Then, I get in the hot tub for about 10 minutes. After that I get taped by the same trainer who has been taping me since my rookie year. Once I’m finished getting dressed, I text my wife to tell her I love her, then I pray and hit the field. 

2. What teammates are you closest with?

 Arthur: I maintain a good relationship with all of my teammates but the guys I’m closest to are Bryan Scott, Mike Caussin, Nick Barnett, and Kelvin Sheppard. 

3. Did you ever see yourself  playing on the outside?

 Arthur: I figured if I was going to play for a long time in the NFL I would eventually have to make the switch due to me being undersized. 

4. Are you a gamer? If so what are your favorite games to play?

Arthur: Yes, I play my fair share of games, but not as frequently during the season. My favorite games to play are NBA 2k12 and Call of Duty. I used to play Madden a lot when I was in college, but now that I’m around football 24/7 I don’t really play it that much. But I do get my copy since I’m up there. 

5. People always say there is nothing to do in Buffalo, what would you say to those people?

Arthur: They must be in the wrong parts of Buffalo because there is plenty of things to do. The food and restaurants here are amazing so that’s always one thing. The falls are gorgeous so if you had people visiting they could take them there. Chippewa is always interesting for the night crowd, and on top of that you have the Bills and the Sabres here!

Buffalo Bills Bring Receiver Ruvell Martin Back to Active Roster

The Buffalo Bills apparently wanted a little more flexibility at wide receiver entering Sunday's season opener, so they brought a fifth wideout back onto the active roster.

For his career, the 30-year-old has 72 catches for 1,088 yards and seven touchdowns...

Week 1 Fantasy Football Preview: Bills vs. Jets

 Buffalo Bills: The Bills come in with an offense that finished middle of the road last season. Averaging just over 23 points a game, the Bills should improve drastically on that number. The first half of last season the Bills offense was a very useful unit in terms of fantasy and could be useful once again this season. The New York Jets defense took a step back last season, while...
