The Ravens' ability to limit the Buffalo Bills to 160 total yards and zero first downs in the fourth quarter may have been best exemplified by the play of cornerback Shareece Wright.
Wright was the only player to register dougle-digit tackles with 11. Three of those stops resulted in the Bills losing yards on three different running plays.
"I do whatever I can, whatever I can to help this team win," Wright said. "I was in position to make tackles, and we emphasized that, making tackles on [Buffalo running LeSean] McCoy and being able to get those guys down and eliminate big plays. We know they're explosive when they're making guys miss tackles. So that was important today, and I was able to get that done."
Wright made his presence known on the Bills' first offensive possession of the game. On second down-and-8 from Buffalo's 34-yard line, Wright stopped McCoy on a run off right tackle for a 6-yard loss. On the ensuing play, Wright tripped up running back Mike Gillislee on a screen pass for a 4-yard loss.
And on third-and-2 from the Bills' 47 in the third quarter, Wright tackled quarterback Tyrod Taylor for a 2-yard loss.
Strong safety Eric Weddle, who played four seasons with Wright as members of the San Diego Chargers, was not surprised by Wright's performance.
"Shareece was big-time today – not only in covering his guys, but I played with Reece for four years, and I know what type of player he is, how physical and tough he is," Weddle said. "He's a willing tackler, and everyone got an open party of what he's all about. I couldn't be more proud of him. He's worked his tail off. Shoot, some of those third-down stops, if he doesn't make those, those maybe become big plays."
