No one in the NFL is doing what the Bills safety duo of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer are doing right now.

Through the Bills’ first seven games this season, Poyer and Hyde have each tallied three interceptions, making them the only safety duo to do so in 2021.

Their combined interception total has helped to lead Buffalo to a tie for the lead in both interceptions (11) and total takeaways (18).

Buffalo and New England are the only teams in the NFL with two players with three or more interceptions (Adrian Phillips and JC Jackson).

Poyer and Hyde are part of an 11-way tie for fourth-most interceptions at three. Cowboys corner Trevon Diggs leads the league with seven. Titans safety Kevin Byard and Bengals linebacker Logan Wilson each have four.

Hyde is the lone player in the league with three or more interceptions, one sack, and one fumble recovery.

Since joining the Bills, Poyer is tied for seventh in the NFL with 16 interceptions and fourth among safeties.

The Bills defense as a whole allows the fewest amount of yards per game (269.0) and points per game (15.6).

Buffalo has the NFL’s highest turnover differential at plus-13. They have the league’s best passing defense and fifth-best run defense by yards per game.
