ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the recent developments related to the football team Buffalo Bills. The play of the defense has declined, but football player London Fletcher still is playing at a Pro Bowl level. He is a tackling machine with great instincts and toughness, and he shows good range in pass coverage. Since football player Takeo Spikes was injured, Fletcher has been used more as a pass rusher. He has pressured quarterbacks consistently and has caused some turnovers. Football player Dalmon Shelton is an ideal lead blocker-big, strong and tough. He excels on isolation plays and can push past the defensive line and finish plays.
