by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (9/21/14) The Bills DST unit did little of note Sunday, in a 22-10 loss to the Chargers in Week 3.
The Bills defense mostly held the Chargers in check, limiting them to 336 yards and just two touchdown drives, but a lack of big players hurt them. The Bills managed just one sack in the loss, while failing to record a single turnover.
The Bills DST unit was coming off a dominant showing against the Dolphins in Week 2, and will look to get back on track in Week 4 against the Texans.

The Bills DST was a solid option in 2013, and hopefully they can continue to play at a high level this year. The unit suffered some key losses with safety Jairus Byrd going to New Orleans and defensive coordinator Mike Pettine becoming the head coach in Cleveland. But the Bills added Brandon Spikes, Keith Rivers and rookie Preston Brown at linebacker, and hopefully Kiko Alonso, Mario Williams, Marcell Dareus and Stephon Gilmore will continue to shine for new coordinator Jim Schwartz. The Bills DST finished No. 8 in Fantasy points in a standard league last season with 23 interceptions, 56 sacks, six fumble recoveries and three touchdowns. The interceptions and sacks were second in the NFL behind Seattle and Carolina, respectively. We consider the Bills a potential Top 12 option heading into the season, and they are worth drafting with a late-round pick. If the Bills don't get drafted then keep an eye on them as a quality bye-week replacement during the year.
