Buffalo Bills Rushing Attack vs Bengals

The Bills’ #1 rushing attack gained 183 yards and 1 TD on 34 attempts vs the Bengals in week 11. It was another game where the running game relied on advancing the ball along the perimeter. Of their 183 yards, 103 were gained outside the tight end, including five of the eight missed tackles forced.

Starting running back LeSean McCoy injured his thumb at the end of the first half and didn’t return, and he was the only player to get into the end zone. Touchdown Mike Gillislee carried the load and finished the game with 72 yards and managed to average 5.1 per clip. He was the highest graded offensive player, per Pro Football Focus, and once again the ground game was the catalyst for a Bills win in Cincinnati.


Buffalo Bills Rushing Attack vs Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks made things tough on the Bills running game, but at times Buffalo dominated in the trenches. The Bills relied on their outside running game to outflank Seattle. Buffalo gained 117 of their 160 yards on runs in the four gaps outside the tackles (C & D gaps). Their inside run game was shut down, as the Bills only gained 15 yards inside the tackles. 75 of their rushing yards were gained after contact which is remarkable considering the Seahawks were one of the best tackling teams in the NFL. Shady alone forced eight missed tackles. Taylor and Gillislee were the only runners to get into the end zone. It was a tough night in the win/loss column, but the run game was still successful.
