ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — It took 11 weeks for Mario Williams and the Buffalo Bills’ oft-maligned defense to finally flex its muscle and show it’s capable of playing up to its high-priced potential.
Williams had one of three sacks and safety Jairus Byrd had a hand in forcing two of three turnovers in a stifling 19-14 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night.
“I’m just happy everyone saw what the Bills are all about,” defensive tackle Marcell Dareus said. “We’re not no pushover. We’re a whole ‘nother team.”
For one game, it sure looked that way.
