Bills' Mario Williams: 'We Have To Put The Quarterback On His Back' To Win

The Kansas City Chiefs travel to Buffalo in Week 2 of the regular season, and the Bills' Mario Williams is ready to put on a defensive show in Buffalo's home-opener.

Williams spoke with reporters on Friday, and was asked if he wanted to make a statement on Sunday:

We are going to take it to it. No matter what we have to do to go out there and get a victory, to get sacks to get that quarterback moving, to stop the run, especially with the running game we have coming in this week we are going to do it.

The defensive end was also asked if he has been disappointed with his own performance:

Yea, we definitely (are) as a whole and starting off with myself. We definitely didn’t do what we needed to do to win. The biggest thing was that we didn’t get sacks. We got back there but if we don’t get him down on the ground before he throws the ball, even if you hit him, it doesn’t matter. You have to get him with the ball. Starting with myself we definitely have to put the quarterback on his back with any means necessary.

The 6'6, 292-pound Williams came to the Bills in the offseason after spending the first six years of his career with the Houston Texans. Williams has been a top pass rusher off the end, amassing 53 sacks in 83 games as a professional.

The Chiefs will face Williams and the Bills at noon CT at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Both teams will be looking for their first win of the season.

The Bills fell, 48-28, to the New York Jets in Week 1, while the Chiefs went down, 40-24, to the Atlanta Falcons.
