Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams said he loved hearing boos from the Houston crowd as he played his first game against his former team (Credit: AP Photo) This off-season, Mario Williams left the Houston Texans for the Buffalo Bills after signing a six year, $100 million contract. After spending five seasons in Houston, Williams had a homecoming party as the Buffalo Bills played the Houston Texans on Sunday. Williams left disappointed as the Bills fell 21-9 to the Texans. Williams ended the game with 7 tackles, 2 for a loss, 1 sack and 1 quarterback hit. The Bills defensive end also said he loved hearing boos from the Houston crowd. “It was great,” Williams told the Buffalo Newsafter the game. “The biggest thing for me is if you go out and make a play and get booed, I know I’m in your heart. That’s the most important thing. If it’d been quiet, then I would’ve felt something different. I know you’re thinking about me.” Williams, who had surgery on his left wrist during the Bills bye week said he believes the wrist is finally healing. “I believe it’s healing now instead of just being stagnant,” Williams said of his wrist. “That definitely boosted my morale.” Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Executive Editor - Brett Krummenacker @BKrumm_SKThe post Mario Williams: “It was great” getting booed in Houston appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
