Big plays bury Bills vs. Buccaneers
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (12/8/13) The Bills defense overcome a rough start in Week 14 against the Buccaneers, but still struggled overall in a 27-6 loss.
The Bills held the Buccaneers to just 246 yards of total offense, 80 of which came on the second play of the game. They held Tampa Bay to just 81 yards in the passing game, but Mike Glennon still managed to toss a pair of touchdowns in addition to his two interceptions.

The Bills DST had a lot of hype in 2012 after signing Mario Williams, but the addition didn't change much. The Bills DST was a middle-of-the-pack option with 30 sacks (one more than 2011), and they allowed 395 points, which was tied with Denver for third worst in the NFL. The Bills DST did have 29 takeaways (20 interceptions) and scored four touchdowns, but the unit has plenty of work to do under new coordinator Mike Pettine, who held the same position with the Jets last year. The Jets were known for creative blitz packages, which should help the pass rush, but this unit has a lot to prove before Fantasy owners can trust them. (Updated 4/25/13)
