Inside The Bills

Hughes rated Bills most efficient pass rusher

Posted by Chris Brown on November 22, 2013 – 9:55 am

The folks at ProFootballFocus watch and grade every play of the season, and for the Bills the player they have at the top of their pass rushing efficiency chart might not be who you think it is.

It’s Jerry Hughes, who doesn’t play quite as many snaps as Mario Williams or Kyle Williams or Marcell Dareus, but has been every bit as effective against the pass. Hughes has six sacks, four QB hits and 29 QB pressures. As we covered in a feature story on Hughes last week, he often creates pressure opportunities for his teammates with the way he flushes quarterbacks from the pocket.

Here’s how the folks at PFF rank the club’s top pass rushers through 11 games.
