Bills' Aaron Williams still upset with officials' fist bump

Monday December 8th, 2014

Buffalo Bills safety Aaron Williams said he doesn't regret criticizing the officials after they fist bumped during Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos, the Associated Press' John Wawrow reports.

After Broncos running back C.J. Anderson scored a one-yard touchdown in the second quarter, line judge John Hussey and umpire Carl Paganelli fist bumped upon agreeing it was a touchdown. On Sunday night, Williams tweeted that the Bills couldn't win if they were also competing against the officials.

On Monday, Williams stood by his comments that the officials were in the wrong.

"I don't care if I do get fined," Williams told the Associated Press on Monday. "I speak the way I feel, and that's the way I feel."

League spokesman Michael Signora said the officials made the gesture to congratulate each other on making the right call.

Despite two fourth-quarter touchdowns by Kyle Orton, the Broncos won the game 24-17 as the Bills' rally ran out of time.

The Bills fell to 7-6 on the season and are one game behind the San Diego Chargers for the final playoff spot in the AFC. They host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
