Sean McDermott establishes Bills franchise win percentage record


Bills head coach Sean McDermott has passed several milestones since he took the head coaching job in Buffalo in 2017. In Week 5 of his sixth season as Buffalo's HC, McDermott has broken another record.

With a 38-3 win over the Steelers, McDermott now has a winning percentage of .616 (53-33), a new club record. He passes former Bills head coach and Hall of Famer Marv Levy's winning percentage of .615 (182-112).

The Bills honored McDermott's accomplishment by giving him the game ball in the locker room following the game.


McDermott lead the Bills to two-straight AFC East division titles from 2020 to 2021, which was the first time Buffalo has done that since 1988 to 1991. The William & Mary grad has also coached his teams to four playoff appearances in his first five seasons in Buffalo.

Under McDermott, the Bills are also 4-1 for the fourth straight season joining the Packers as the only team to do so in each of the last three seasons.

Since 2017 the Bills have had one of the best defenses in the NFL. Coming into Week 5, they have allowed 20.16 points per game (3rd), 310.3 total yards per game (1st), 89 passing touchdowns (1st) and forced 140 takeaways (1st).
