Buffalo Bills Week 5 Game Ball: SS George Wilson

When one offensive player accounts for 58 percent of your team's offensive yardage production and scores a touchdown in a big home win, giving a game ball to a player other than said offensive star would require a huge performance. Fred Jackson accumulated 196 yards and a score in the Buffalo Bills' 31-24 win over the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday, but safety George Wilson is getting our game ball.

Wilson was a stud against Philadelphia. He led the team with 11 tackles in the win, and recorded an interception for the third consecutive game. He batted a pass down on a blitz, and helped the Bills play excellent contain defense on Michael Vick, particularly in the first half. Wilson was all over the field, and has proven himself to be an impact defender in his first season as a full-time starter.

Buffalo's defense may still be giving up huge amounts of yardage, but it's (mostly) forgivable when they're taking the ball away from opponents multiple times per contest. Wilson and his team-leading three interceptions pace that effort - and he's made Bills fans quickly forget former Top 10 pick Donte Whitner, to say the least.
