Since Frazier arrived in Buffalo, the Bills have consistently had one of the NFL's top defenses. In the last six seasons, the Bills have allowed the third-fewest points per game in the NFL, and their 315 yards allowed per game is the best mark in football over that span.
Last season, Buffalo allowed 319.1 yards per game, sixth-lowest in the NFL, and its 17.9 points allowed was second-best in the league.
