Kyle Williams - The new rules go toward offensive production

October 09, 2018 - 5:53 pm

After a 13-12 victory over the Titans on Sunday, Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams joined us for his weekly appearance on Tuesday to talk more on the defense's success, the QB hitting rules, the addition of quarterback Derek Anderson and more! Here are some quotes from his Tuesday appearance: 

On limiting the Titans on offense: 

"We were trying to linit their big plays, a lot of their play action... or (Mariota) making big plays with his feet. Those were two of the big ways that we needed to flip fields and create great field position and we're able to score points."

"It was a physical game, it was a fun game to play in and obviously, get the win at home. It doesn't get any better than that." 

On the rules about the roughing the passer in the NFL: 

"Most of the rule changes over the last decade, 5 years, however far back you want to go, they are slighted towards offensive production. You can't touch a receiver past 5 yards. You can't put your body weight on a quarterback." 

"The majority of the rules that have gone into effect can be construed to help the offense. That's the tough thing about playing defense in this league." 

On the Bills signing quarterback Derek Anderson: 

"We played against each other in college, I've played him in Cleveland and Carolina. I spent some time with him earlier today in the locker room, just kind of catching up. I think he's going to be a good asset for our team and a good asset for our quarterback room."
