Leslie Fraizer Makes Sure Unit Doesn’t "Forget A Lot Of Good Things" From Last Year

ORCHARD PARK, NY (WHEC) – The Buffalo Bills had a top defense in the 2021 regular season. Even in the wild card game, the dominance remained as they allowed only a pair of touchdowns and a field goal on their way to a 47-17 win over the New England Patriots. However, the AFC Divisional Game didn’t go as smoothly.

Buffalo allowed a season-high 42 points to the Kansas City Chiefs, thirteen of which came in the 4th quarter. Sean McDermott has repeatedely shyed away from diving into specifics of the defense’s struggles late in the game. Though Leslie Frazier would agree that putting the past behind them is the best course of action, he mentioned it’s important to not let go of everything Buffalo did from a season ago.

"I think for all the guys in our end of the season meeting, you know, we we didn’t want to forget a lot of good things we did on defense," Frazier said ahead of OTAs on Tuesday. "Just try to encourage the guys as much as I could and the rest of our staff as we all went our separate ways and you have no idea the open season season, what it’s going to be like, but the enthusiasm and the excitement that the guys have gives you hope," he said.
