Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams has been named AFC defensive player of the week for his two-sack performance against the Miami Dolphins.
Of course, that included a forced fumble against Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill that set up the winning field goal by the Bills. It's the second time in seven weeks Williams has won the honor.
Williams' 10 sacks are tied for second in the NFL with Kansas City Chiefs outside linebacker Justin Houston. Indianapolis Colts defensive end Robert Mathis has 11.5 sacks.
The Bills' single-season team record for sacks is 19 by Bruce Smith in 1990. Smith's second-best total was 15 in 1986. Bryce Paup had 17.5 sacks for the Bills in 1995.
