Williams: Allen is 'only going to get better'

Despite a 21-17 loss on Sunday, the Buffalo Bills defense put up another strong performance against Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins.

The Bills limited the Dolphins to just 175 yards of total offense, an average of 3.5 yards per-play, and they were able to sack Tannehill three times. Although the Dolphins were able to score three times on the defense, Buffalo did a nice job of keeping Tannehill to just 137 yards in the air, while limiting the run game with Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore to just 60 yards.

Perhaps the biggest story of this game was the play of Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen, who went 18-of-33 for 231 yards and two touchdowns in the air, while rushing for a franchise record 135 yards on nine carries. It has been, arguably, Allen's best game in his rookie season, which has got many in Buffalo and around the football world buzzing.

Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams joined Mike Schopp and the Bulldog for his weekly appearance on Buffalo Bills Football Monday. He took the time to recap Monday's tough loss to the Dolphins, as well talk about the weekly growth of Allen.

Here is some of what he had to say:

 

Williams on the defense in 2018-19:

"If you look at what we've done this year, we've played some really good defense... but we haven't held up our end of the bargain with turnovers and we still have to be better in the red zone."

 

Williams on Josh Allen:

"What's exciting is what he can do with his arm, with his legs and what he can do while on the run. Plays break down, and one spy is not enough to bring him down. He's a hard guy to play man coverage against... He can do a lot of different things at a high level.  He's only going to get better."

 

Williams on the penalties:

"At the most important times, we have to play hard, but also smart. We don't want to put the team in a tough position."

 

Williams on Jerry Hughes' situation with the officiating:

"Jerry called him out on it. That's something that should be looked at outside of this building. You really don't see it much, but I haven't seen it. Some guys have a reputation for doing that. I think it's being looked at."

 

Williams on the New York Jets:

"We played [Josh] McCown the first time, and we weren't really sure who would play back then. [Sam] Darnold is more of a move-around-to-throw guy."
