Hope he keeps playing well. He had a good game, they couldn't stop him, even when they doubled him

It wasn't only the Pass Rush pressure in addition to the sacks by Mario, he was also excellent against the run.  Way to play big #94.

He played with a fire that was missing on some other games. I wish he could find that motivation everytime he steps on the field. We shall see.

Imagine if Mario could have gotten Cam down on those other 2 missed tackles....He would have had 6.5 sacks.  Haven't seen a Bills DE perform at that level in a game since BRUUUUUCe.  Great game Super Mario.

That's what happens when you tell a NC State player that they are playing Carolina!

it seems as though mario is physically superior to everyone else in the nfl that he lines up against. today he played like he knew this as fact. amazing what a bit of confidence does for you.

The more these guys play together the better they will be. Also will be nice getting Byrd and Gilmore back.

That's what we hoped to get for the  big bucks. He was a beast, but props to a DC who has a freakin' clue on how to use the big guy.

The insane thing is that is you completely ignored the 4.5 sacks, Mario played an excellent game all around.

Why the hell is Mario even playing with plantars fasciitis? He needs to sit until he's 100% and not a moment before.

GO BILLS!!!

Hey Byrd had a Pro Bowl season with that exact same condition! You don't see him slacking off on the sidelines while Mario puts up franchise records. Wait...

Absolutely. He looked tenacious on the rush today, there was one sack where they tried to double and he just knocked the halfback backward and then beat the OT. It was awesome. And he's always sealed the edge well vs the run.
