Pro Football Focus is known for their extensive studies and conclusions based nearly exclusively on statistics. Based on that, the website released their Mid-Season All-Pro Team and while the Buffalo Bills as a whole have been somewhat disappointing, one player has earned their approval as one of the league’s best.
Bills safety Jairus Byrd was the lone team representative selected to the team. Of him their staff writes “Byrd’s work in coverage is second-to-none and he oozes playmaking ability. A real game-changer at the safety position.”
Byrd has three interceptions and three forced fumbles for the Bills this year, has been excellent in run support and one of the few defenders on the team that’s lived up to expectations.
Defensive tackle Kyle Williams and running back C.J. Spiller were noticed as honorable mentions.
