The Buffalo Bills' $100 million man is getting into a groove.
With five games to go, Bills defensive end Mario Williams already has more sacks than any Bills registered in each of the previous two seasons.
The big-ticket free agent made his presence felt this afternoon against the Indianapolis Colts. He recorded three sacks, a half-sack short of the career-best he set with the Houston Texans in 2007.
All of Williams' sacks Sunday came on third downs and forced punts. He added another hit on Colts quarterback Andrew Luck and deflected a pass.
Williams claimed his stellar performance didn't matter because of the final score.
"I told you before all I want to do is go out and play ball and try to help us get in position to win," Williams said. "It's 11 people on a defense. Obviously, one particular effort helps, but we need all 11."
Williams leads the Bills with 8.5 sacks, the most since Aaron Schobel finished with 10 sacks in 2009.
Williams has seven sacks over his past six games and five sacks in the four games since having wrist surgery during the bye week.
"The biggest thing for me is my morale and feeling better," Williams said. "That helped me tremendously."
