The Bills’ schedule is out, and a key game for defensive end Mario Williams will come in Week Nine, when he visits his old team at Houston.
At least, that would seem to be a key game. But Williams said on ESPN that in reality he doesn’t have that date circled on his calendar.
“I’m going to be relaxed, man,” Williams said. “I’m going to be calm, cool — just like any other game.”
Williams allowed that it’ll be nice to see his old friends on the other team, especially if he can hit them.
“Obviously I have a bunch of friends on that team,” he said. “It’s going to be good to see those guys, get out there and mix it up, be able to see Matt Schaub and actually be able to tackle him.”
But what Williams sounded more interested in is the fact that the Bills get four of their last five games at home. Williams said he’ll be hoping for a blizzard.
“It definitely will be an advantage,” Williams said. “I think the elements will probably be in our favor.”
It’s been a long time since Buffalo hosted late-season, bad-weather games with the playoffs on the line. This could be the year, and that excites Williams more than a mid-season game in Houston.
