Watkins shakes off noise, Dolphins
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Bills receiver Sammy Watkins had nothing to apologize for Sunday.
Shrugging off a sprained left ankle and critics accusing him of an unwillingness to play through injuries, the second-year star had eight catches for a career best 168 yards and a touchdown to help beat the Dolphins.
"I just put it behind me," Watkins said, referring to a stir he caused recently by calling his critics "losers" on his Instagram account. "I felt like I owed it to the fans, to the team, and to the organization."
The fans responded by chanting "SAM-MY!" as the Bills snapped a two-game skid.
Rookie running back Karlos Williams had 110 yards rushing and scored twice, while LeSean McCoy had 112 yards rushing and scored on a 48-yard run. Now that's more like it, said McCoy, referring to an offense that combined for 420 yards, including 266 rushing.
"The offensive line really kicked butt today," McCoy said. "I shouldn't use the word bully, but they really bullied up front."
