It’s not all about his sacks, but the plays made by Mario Williams the last three weeks have been big in every way, shape or form.
Williams has 6.5 sacks in his last three games and leads the team with a dozen this season. Head coach Doug Marrone was taken aback with his dominance on the field Monday night in Detroit.
“Really even if you go back to the game before (the Jets game) he played really well even though we didn’t win the game,” said Marrone. “I’m trying to make sure I know what it is so whatever it is I can use it all the time. If we can keep him going the way he is right now in these last two games, he’s been dominant. He’ll be tested this week. (Browns RT Mitchell) Schwartz will be out there on him. We’ve got to win that matchup. That’ll be a big matchup.
“I’m sure they’ll try to run the ball at Mario so he’s got to be ready for that. But there’s no doubt about it when he plays like that people are going to start saying, ‘What are we going to do?’ We’ve got a lot of good guys playing around him too. You’ve got Jerry (Hughes) playing at a high level. You’ve got our inside guys playing at a high level. For him to come out like that and the more attention they put on him it could open things up for everybody else or vice versa.”
