Before 2009 toxic differential was an unknown metric. Devised by former Baltimore Ravens head coach Brian Billick, it takes turnover differential and big play differential and adds the two figures together as a means of measuring how effectively an NFL team can execute big plays without surrendering them to the opponent. As we covered on Buffalobills.com today, the Bills finished with their highest ever toxic differential, finishing fourth in the NFL in 2015.

The Bills have had only two seasons in which they’ve posted a positive toxic differential, with both coming in two of the last three seasons.
