Bills look to step up run-game as the 2nd half of the season arrives
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WHEC) — Statistically, the Buffalo Bills running game might not look that troubling. The team’s 119 rush yards per game is 11th in the NFL and their 4.4 yards per carry is one below. However, those numbers don’t tell the whole story especially when Josh Allen has accounted for about a third of the team’s yards on the ground (319 out of 958).
With little protection from the offensive line, largely preventing Allen from scrambling and finding space to run, the Jaguars limited Buffalo to 72 rushing yards on just 14 attempts (both season lows) in their Week 9 win over Buffalo. On the season as a whole, Zack Moss and Devin Singletary have combined for just 4 TDs and 578 yards.
The team’s inability to create a threatening run game has repeatedly been a topic of conversation and was brought up again when Sean McDermott and his players met the media on Wednesday afternoon.
