The Buffalo Bills' pass rushers are at it again today.
The Bills recorded two sacks of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill in the first quarter at Ralph Wilson Stadium. They now have 51 for the season -- breaking the unofficial team record of 50 set in 1964. Sacks did not become an official NFL statistic until 1982.
Safety Da'Norris Searcy got the first sack of Tannehill on the Dolphins' third play from scrimmage, forcing a punt. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams then broke the record when he got to Tannehill on Miami's second possession, again on third down. Again, the Dolphins punted.
Williams has been in the Dolphins' backfield all afternoon. He sacked Tannehill once, dropped running back Daniel Thomas for a 3-yard loss and landed another big hit on Tannehill just after he released a pass.
Rain arrives: The weather is as miserable as predicted here at The Ralph. Heavy clouds rolled in before kickoff, and the rain has been steady throughout the first quarter. The conditions might have had an impact on Brian Moorman's first punt for the Bills. It traveled just 13 yards.
No Marcell: Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is active for today's game, but has not appeared yet. He has spent time on the stationary bike with trainers. Dareus was probable for the game coming into today because of an ankle injury.
Goodwin done: Rookie receiver Marquise Goodwin was helped off the field by trainers after suffering a knee injury late in the first quarter. Goodwin was tackled going out of bounds on the Dolphins' sideline. He later walked back to the locker room with trainers, and was announced out for the game.
