Buffalo Bills' defensive end Mario Williams has earned the AFC Defensive Player of the Week award.
Just days after being the defensive force that earned two sacks in fourth quarter, including the fumble that set up the game-winning field goal, Williams has earned the honor for the Bills.
Williams, who leads the Bills with 10 sacks, also earned the award in week two against the Carolina Panthers when he earned 4.5 sacks on Cam Newton.
Williams' teammates aren't that surprised that he showed up when the team needed him the most.
“That’s Mario,” said Fred Jackson. “Anytime you’ve got a guy like Mario you expect him to make plays like that. They called a pass and with a guy like that you’ve got to be wary of where he is and he beat his guy and was able to get a sack fumble and it gave us an opportunity to win the football game.”
The Bills are hoping that Williams can keep his defensive hot streak going as they look to find a way to defeat the New Orleans Saints and the high powered offense featuring quarterback Drew Brees.
