The Buffalo Bills finished the 2013 season with a depressing 6-10 record. Despite their impressive final two games, Buffalo lost all hope for a playoff berth after Week 14. However, the Associated Press still finds two Bills worthy of All-Pro team nods.
Defensive lineman Mario Williams and safety Jairus Byrd made the AP’s annual list as second team defensive players. Byrd fifth season in the NFL was a dismal one in comparison to his previous three years in the league racking up 48 combined tackles, one sack and one forced fumble. His most impressive stat comes in the form of picks, the 2009 second-round draft selection snatched up four interceptions for 85 yards in 11 games. Williams, on the other hand, did not miss a single regular season game, and his numbers show what a crucial piece he plays for the Bills. With 38 tackles and one forced fumble, Williams also notched up 13 sacks in 2013, just one fewer than his career high.
These two made up the No. 4 ranked pass defense and No. 28 run defense in the league. If you’d like to see the full list of 2013 All-Pro teams, click here.
