The 2019 Buffalo Bills season is in the books, and we’re looking back at the year’s results with one of our favorite discussion setups, approval polls! Let’s talk about Leslie Frazier.
Now having finished his third season with the Buffalo Bills, Frazier is Sean McDermott’s trusted right-hand man in charge of defense. He calls the plays on gameday and coordinates the players and substitutions in the roster. How did his 2019 season go?
- 2nd in points allowed, with 259. That was Buffalo’s lowest total since 1999 (229) and the fourth-lowest among 16-game seasons in franchise history.
- 3rd in yards allowed, with 4772.
- The Bills, generating 23 turnovers, ranked tenth in the league. 14 were interceptions, nine were fumble recoveries.
- Opponents completed 348/553 passes for 3123 yards, 15 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions. That gives them a 76.5 passer rating against the Bills’ defense.
- The Bills allowed 1649 yards and 12 touchdowns on 388 carries. Buffalo’s raw yards and touchdowns given up both ranked in the top ten, but 4.3 yards per carry ranks 18th in the league.
- Tre’Davious White blossomed in year three, being named first-team All-Pro and selected to the Pro Bowl.
- Tremaine Edmunds continued his steady development, with 115 tackles, ten for a loss, 1.5 sacks, nine passes defended, and an interception in his second season.
- Rookie Ed Oliver demonstrated his NFL talent with a five-sack rookie season.
- A few other Bills had career years, including Shaq Lawson and Jordan Phillips. Second-year cornerback Levi Wallace and defensive end Trent Murphy were two players with up-and-down seasons who saw their playing time cut and restored week-to-week.
