Mike Williams hoping to put his red-zone skills to use


The Buffalo Bills went 0-4 in the red zone in their 17-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, and the team currently has the worst scoring percentage in the league (41 percent).

Wide receiver Mike Williams thinks he can help in that regard, but first things first: He needs to be active to do it.

"Still, to this day, I feel like I'm that type of player," Williams said of his red-zone skills, via Mike Rodak of "I think it's just about the opportunities and reps. I just think when I get those, I think it will be a lot better for me and hopefully for the team."

Williams didn't get a chance to help the sluggish unit Sunday, as he was inactive for the second time in a month in favor of wide receiver Marquise Goodwin. The 27-year-old called the coaching move "the wrong decision," though saying he ultimately understands why coach Doug Marrone made the call.

"I know my abilities, I know my talents, I know how I can help," he said. "That's why I think it's the wrong decision. But from the team aspect, that's the coach's decision to make that."

Marrone acknowledged the struggles in his Monday press conference, saying he'd continue to look into possible tweaks to the offensive squad. Changes on a short week, however, are unlikely, as Buffalo will be on the road this week to take on the Miami Dolphins Thursday night.
