As the Buffalo Bills' star has continued to grow, it feels like everyone has overlooked their Wild Card Round opponent, the Indianapolis Colts. And that has not been lost on Indianapolis' superstar linebacker Darius Leonard.

Check out what the third-year linebacker had to say about his team's upcoming matchup with the Bills.

I feel like for me, there is never any pressure. Like coach said, when you are the seventh seed everybody expects you to fail, that’s the mindset... Everybody is saying you will fail. I looked at something today, it was pretty crazy that everybody said that the Bills are going to win, everybody is counting us out. So we can just go in there and just be us.

That's exactly what Colts fans want to hear from their defensive leader. And Leonard isn't wrong. Buffalo has essentially been penciled into the Divisional Round, with this site being guilty of that as well, as every member of The Duel's staff picked the Bills to advance to the next round.

Indianapolis is currently a 6.5-point underdog, per FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL playoff odds, but Leonard certainly has the right mindset to go out and prove the doubters wrong.
