Bills DT Kyle Williams had a solid game last week against the Chiefs. His performance earned him Unsung Defensive Player of the Week honors from SI’s Monday Morning Quarterback site.
Here’s what they wrote about Buffalo’s Pro Bowl DT along with their charts that measures their own devised metric called pressure points.
Williams didn’t have a sack against the undefeated Chiefs on Sunday, but he had his usual understated impact with two drawn holds, four hurries and one hit to place fourth for the week.
“I think it’s a hard thing to really point out stats all the time because they don’t tell the full story,” Williams said this week. “There’s different ways to impact games. You can have sacks and tackles, which everybody likes to get, but sometimes, whether it’s for scheme or how the game goes, you don’t get those. But are you helping create opportunities for your team or for your teammates and doing good things in that area? That’s just as important as those other things.”
Williams has continued to do that all season, despite making the switch to Mike Pettine’s 3-4 hybrid scheme. Williams, who mostly plays three technique, is sixth in our pressure rate for the season.
