Flash back to August for a moment. The defense was expected to serve as the primary strength for the Bills in 2012. While question marks lingered at linebacker and in the defensive backfield, the revamped defensive line was expected to be the centerpiece of an elite unit.

The Bills forced only four turnovers and registered 10 sacks in each of their seven losses.
By comparison, Buffalo has yielded averages of 15.8 points, 187.8...
