Defensive disappointment for Bills

  • Text size: + -

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Defensive end Mark Anderson is out for Sunday's Bills finale against the Jets. Anderson was trying to return from two knee surgeries after being injured in Week 5. Anderson, who signed with the Bills last off-season, finishes with 12 tackles and one sack in his first season in Buffalo.

Anderson's injury-plagued year one of many disappointments for the Bills defense.

Through 15 games, the Bills have given up 426 points this season, third-most in franchise history. If the Jets score 29 points on Sunday, it will be the most points in a single season the Bills have ever allowed.

Three of the club's four highest totals in opposition points have come during Chan Gailey's three years as head coach.

Too many points, not enough sacks, not enough turnovers, leaving plenty of questions about what went wrong.

"The biggest problem I see as well is us managing and handling turnovers and short field," said defensive end Mario Williams. "We cannot allow last week’s 17 points in the short field from turnovers. us up front and front seven we have to get to the quarterback more."
