Bills fans may have been nervous when they saw that Ronald Darby was inactive against one of the most high flying offenses in the NFL. But Bills players knew they had Corey White to step up and step in.

All White did was capably handle coverage assignments against the likes of Michael Floyd, Larry Fitzgerald and Jaron Brown and come close to leading the team in tackles.

White had nine tackles, which was second only to Zach Brown with 12. He also had one of Buffalo’s four fourth quarter interceptions.

“Corey is a good cornerback,” said Stephon Gilmore. “When he came in he made plays. He’s very instinctive. That’s what you’ve got to do when somebody goes down. Somebody has to step up and not have that much drop off and he did that. He had a great day. D-line had a great day, the linebackers got to the quarterback and we made plays on the back end.”

“That’s what we harp on,” said White. “We’re DBs and and we want to make plays. When the ball is in the air we gotta feel like it’s ours every play. That’s what we’ve been doing in training camp, OTAs. We just made plays on the ball.”
