Mario Williams was last year’s $100 million man after he signed that monster deal to head up to Western New York with the Buffalo Bills. After he signed the deal he wasn’t playing up to par due to a wrist injury with only three and a half sacks, but he had a wrist procedure during the bye week and hasn’t looked back since. In the 16 games since the procedure, Williams has amassed a whopping 17 sacks, including 10 this season alone which we’re only seven games into. If he keeps up this blazing pace of crazy quarterback pressure he might be at or near the NFL record of 22.5 sacks held by former New York Giants great defensive end Michael Strahan.
In today’s game Williams had two sacks including a clutch strip sack with just under three minutes left which set them up in great field position after Kyle Williams fell on the ball on the Miami Dolphins 35-yard line. This led to a successful milking of the clock by the Bills to set up the game-winning field goal.
All in all it was a nerve-wracking game, but that’s how the Buffalo Bills roll this year becoming the 2013 version of the cardiac kids. The Bills are also one of two teams to score over 20 points in all seven games they have played this year, and the other is the currently unbeaten Denver Broncos. Here’s hoping the Bills can ride their first road win of the 2013 NFL season into the Crescent City next week as they face the New Orleans Saints.
