Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams was unblockable against the Carolina Panthers.

Williams recorded 4 1/2 sacks against the Panthers to set a franchise single-game record with his pressure on quarterback Cam Newton.

No Bills player had four sacks in a game since Bruce Smith back in 1994 against the Houston Oilers.

“Physically, I feel great and mentally I'm better than ever,” Williams told reporters.  “I'm just going out there and playing ball, staying calm. I'm probably one of the calmest persons you'll ever meet. I just go out there and try to make it happen.”

Williams impressed Bills coach Doug Marrone.

“I saw power in rushing that passer,” Bills coach Doug Marrone said. “He was around. I told him afterwards, ‘Hey don’t dance with this guy early let’s go and close the distance, make a move and go.’ I thought he did a very good job of that.”
