Defensive tackle Ed Oliver gave the Bills plenty to be thankful for on Thanksgiving.

Oliver was a major reason why the Bills were able to outlast the Lions for a 28-25 win last Thursday. Oliver had six tackles, a sack for a safety, two quarterback hits, two tackles for loss, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery over the course of the win.

The forced fumble and fumble recovery both came on the same second quarter play and Oliver’s strip of Lions running back Jamaal Williams was followed by the team’s second touchdown of the afternoon.

The NFL announced on Wednesday that Oliver has been named the AFC’s defensive player of the week in honor of that performance.

  1. This is better than the Game Ball he did not get from the Bills. The Man was a stud on Sunday.

  2. Good game, but it came against 5th and 6th string Guards, one of which is actually a backup Tackle playing out of position.
