Poyer had five solo tackles during Monday's win over the Patriots.
The 29-year-old played a season-low 74 percent of the defensive snaps as he exited to be evaluated for a head injury, but he was able to retake the field. Poyer has enjoyed a strong 2020 campaign with 122 tackles (90 solo), two sacks, two interceptions and two forced fumbles through 15 games.
Poyer posted 10 tackles (seven solo), a pass breakup and an interception in Sunday's 44-34 win over the Seahawks.
With a third double-digit tackling performance in four weeks, Poyer now ranks seventh in the league with 79 total tackles and second with 60 solo tackles. The 29-year-old safety is on track to shatter last year's career high of 107 stops, and his consistent floor makes him a premiere IDP asset.
Poyer posted six tackles (four solo), a sack and a pass breakup in Sunday's 18-10 win over the Jets.
The veteran safety is already up to two sacks on the season, a career high, and he's piled up 58 stops (42 solo) through seven games, putting him on pace for a whopping 138 stops (96 solo). That would be quite the achievement for the 29-year-old, and his every-snap workload puts him in a good position to accomplish the feat.
Poyer had 10 tackles (nine solo) during Monday's 26-17 loss to Kansas City.
The 29-year-old played every defensive snap again Monday and has missed only two snaps through six games. Poyer has been a solid IDP contributor with 52 total tackles and one sack this season.
Poyer posted 14 tackles during Sunday's win over the Rams.
The Los Angeles offense really got going in the second half and Poyer ended up getting in on much of the action. The eighth-year safety remains a top IDP among defensive backs, with 26 tackles, 1.0 sacks and a forced fumble through three games. Poyer also almost never leaves the field, playing 95 percent or more of the defensive snaps in every game since the start of last season, save for a Week 17 finale against the Jets when the Bills were resting starters.
Poyer has signed a two-year extension with the Bills that will keep him with the team through 2022, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
In his third season with the Bills in 2019, Poyer racked up a career-high 107 tackles to go along with two picks and three forced fumbles, making him a quality IDP option while serving as the team's starting strong safety. Meanwhile, Micah Hyde -- the squad's top free safety -- is still under contract with Buffalo through the 2021 season.
Poyer ranked second on the Bills in tackles in 2019 with a career-high 107 stops, while also adding one sack, two interceptions, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
If you're looking for IDP consistency, Poyer is your man, as he's posted 95-plus tackles in all three of his seasons as a Bill, ranking in the top 10 among safeties each time while only missing one game across those three campaigns. With most of the defense returning for 2020, namely his backcourt mate Micah Hyde, Poyer should once again be way up there by the end of the next campaign. The veteran finished seventh among safeties in standard IDP scoring in 2019.
Poyer recorded 11 tackles (10 solo) and forced a fumble in Saturday's 24-17 loss to the Patriots.
It was Poyer's fourth forced fumble of the season and his third game with 10 or more tackles. He has 105 stops on the year to get to triple digits for the second-straight campaign.
Poyer tallied three tackles (two solo), an interception and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 17-10 victory over the Steelers.
Poyer finished the contest with lower tackle totals than normal, but he made an impact in other areas of the game with a pick -- one of four on the night for the Bills -- and a fumble recovery. He played every defensive snap for Buffalo and should continue to have a presence in the box score.
Poyer had 10 tackles (five solo) and a pass defensed during Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Ravens.
Poyer once again played every defensive snap and reached double-digit tackles for the second time this season. The 28-year-old has been a decent IDP producer at safety in 2019, totaling 90 tackles (34 solo), one sack, one interception, two forced fumbles and one recovered fumble in 13 games.
Poyer briefly left Sunday's win over Tennessee due to a shoulder injury but was able to return after missing just a few plays, Leo Roth of the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reports.
With a Week 6 bye up ahead, we imagine Poyer should be just fine for the Week 7 divisional matchup against the Dolphins. The safety logged five tackles in the victory and now sports an impressive 33 stops, a sack, an interception, a pass defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery through five games.
Poyer made 12 tackles (11 solo) and recovered a fumble he forced in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Bengals.
This is the second straight week that Poyer recorded a turnover, as he posted an interception in Week 2's game versus the Giants. Poyer has played every defensive snap this season, recording 23 tackles through three contests. The 28-year-old is an excellent IDP asset, and he provides a solid floor with a high tackle count.
Poyer made two solo tackles and grabbed an interception in the Bills' road win over the Giants on Sunday.
The 28-year-old continued to prove his IDP value, picking off an overthrown pass from Eli Manning late in the fourth quarter to seal his first pick of the season. Through two games, Poyer has made 11 tackles and participated in every single defensive snap for the Bills defense. He'll certainly be tested for Week 3, as he and the Buffalo defense will face the NFL's leader in passing yards, Andy Dalton.
Poyer made nine tackles (six solo) and a sack in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Jets.
Poyer posted 100 tackles last year, proving himself as a capable run stopper. He is mimicking that success early in 2019, and he dropped Jets QB Sam Darnold to add to his value. Poyer also has ball-hawk capabilities, as he has nine interceptions over the last two years. He'll look to bring those out in Week 2's matchup versus the Giants.
Poyer finished the 2018 season with 100 combined tackles, 2.0 sacks, six passes defensed, four interceptions, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
The Buffalo defense wasn't the reason the team didn't make the playoffs, and Poyer played a major part in the team finishing as the NFL's top-ranked pass defense. His stats were almost a mirror image of his 2017 breakout season, so there's no reason the numbers won't continue with fellow safety Micah Hyde, top cornerback Tre'Davious White and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier all part of the plan once again next season. Poyer finished ninth in standard IDP scoring among all safeties.
Poyer had seven tackles (four solo), a sack and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
Poyer has strung together back-to-back quality efforts, as he also reached 11 tackles in Week 15 against the Lions. The 27-year-old has 91 tackles (66 solo), four interceptions, two sacks and a forced fumble as the Bills' starting free safety this year.
Poyer recorded 11 tackles (10 solo) across 57 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Lions.

Poyer posted 11 tackles while playing all 57 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Lions.
Poyer has a shot at his first 100-tackle season if he can get just 16 more in his last two games, excellent production for a safety. He sits eighth among all safeties in IDP scoring of one point per tackle, three for a sack and five for an interception. He should be his usual busy self as the Bills finish up their schedule with two divisional games, Sunday at New England and home against Miami in Week 17.
Poyer recorded 10 tackles (nine solo) and an interception in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.
Poyer's 10 tackles led the team in Week 12. He's now up to three interceptions and 62 tackles on the year. His numbers have dropped a bit from last year but he's still been a consistent, quality player for Buffalo. Poyer and the Bills will look to add to their two-game win streak in Sunday's Week 13 matchup with Miami.
Poyer recorded six tackles (three solo), including a sack, in Sunday's 41-10 win over the Jets.
Poyer's sack was his first of the season and the fourth of his career. His six tackles were also his most since Week 4. Buffalo's big win was a bit of a surprise but it will look to maintain the positive momentum as long as it can. Looking ahead, Poyer and the Bills will take on the Jaguars in Week 12 following a Week 11 bye.
