Brown connected on 23-of-26 field-goal tries (88 percent) and nailed all 31 of his PATs for 100 points last season.

It's difficult to fathom how much better Williams can get after leading Buffalo with 13 sacks - one short of matching a career best - and contributing to a defense that had a franchise-record 57 sacks. What troubles Williams in assessing a year in which he earned his third Pro Bowl selection is how little of a dent he made in the Bills' overall success.
