The Bills win over Cleveland is reviewed play by play by Pro Football Focus along with every other game during the week of action in the NFL. Here was their assessment of last Sunday’s win and who stood out in the victory.
Nigel Bradham, LB: +6.1
Breakdown: While he’d have been even happier is he had picked that pass off, Bradham had another excellent outing on Sunday. Tremendous against the run and solid in coverage, there was little not to like about his efforts
Signature Play: Q4, 3:26 remaining. Snagging one of the seven defensive stops he had in the game, Bradham stopped running back Terrance West for a 3-yard gain with no yards after the catch here.
Starting Defensive Line: +7.1 combined
Breakdown: Another strong outing saw Mario Williams, Marcell Dareus, Kyle Williams and Jerry Hughes all finish with positive grades up front. They were simply too much for the Browns’ offensive line to handle throughout the game, both against the run and as pass rushers.
Signature Stat: With some tough play up front, they held the Browns to 2.2 yards per carry when you take out the 18-yard run on the game’s final play.
Robert Woods, WR: +0.8
Breakdown: Sammy Watkins gets the headlines for his big plays as a rookie so far, but not enough is often said about second-year receiver Robert Woods. Adding a big play in most games for the Bills this season, he did it again on Sunday.
Signature Play: Q3, 8:36 remaining. Setting the Bills up inside the Cleveland 5-yard line by hauling in the deep pass, he did so despite pass interference from Buster Skrine on the play.
PFF Game Ball
Nigel Bradham was the best player on a defense that made life impossible for the Cleveland offense. He may not have held onto the would-be interception, but the PFF Game Ball stays in his grasp.
