2013 Record: 6-10
After an injury filled rookie season the jury is still out on quarterback E.J. Manuel. Manuel was unable to stay on the field during his rookie campaign and only played in ten games. Backup/spot starter Thad Lewis was thrust onto the scene and performed admirably. The 2013 Bills offense was carried by their run game which ranked second in the NFL at 144 yards a game. A run game that was successful even with C.J. Spiller battling an ankle sprain all year long.
Defensive end Mario Williams had an auspicious start to his career with the Bills. Known as the sack king in Houston, Williams did not have quite the same impact in his first year with the Bills. It was rookie Kiko Alonso who impressed for the Bills on the defensive side of the ball in 2013. Alonso had an outstanding rookie season and looks to be a player the Bills can build around for the future.
The Bills were in desperate need of a number one receiver after finishing 28th in the league in passing.They addressed that need by selecting Sammy Watkins (Clemson) with the fourth overall pick in the NFL Draft. With a young nucleus of Manuel, Alonso, Spiller and Watkins the Bills look to be heading in the right direction. Get your tickets today from Gold Coast Tickets!
