Bills left tackle Dion Dawkins has made 50 straight starts, fourth most in the NFL at his position.

The Buffalo Bills bet big on Dion Dawkins this offseason.

Although its been just 10 games since the team gave him a contract extension that could be worth up to $60 million over the next four years, its so far looking like money well spent by General Manager Brandon Beane.

Dawkins has now started 50 straight games at left tackle for the Bills, solidifying one of the offenses key positions. Hes also in his second year as a team captain, which is an honor voted on by his teammates.

Nothing has changed from him getting that deal, wide receiver Cole Beasley said. He still plays as if hes hungry to try and get another deal. He's been doing a good job for us. He's a very vocal guy when we're out there. He keeps us going in the huddle throughout the game, the highs and lows. It's good to have players like that.

Dawkins has been a mainstay at a time of significant shuffling up front. The Bills have used five different starting lineups along the offensive line this season, even though Dawkins and right tackle Daryl Williams have started every game.

Any time one of your brothers goes down ... it's hard, Dawkins said. As an offensive lineman, we have to play as one. Going through routines with the same guys, we kind of know what to expect. When somebody new comes in, it just changes that routine just a little bit. Nothing drastic, but just a little bit, and honestly in this world, just a little bit is kind of a lot. It's always hard, but it's nothing that can't be done. In this league, we know the injury rate is 100%. We deal with it as we go and handle it like pros.
