Buffalo Bills Week 2 Preview – Will The Injuries Hurt?
Even without Freddy Jackson and David Nelson, there is plenty to get excited about in Buffalo.
Heading into Week 2, the Buffalo Bills boast the NFL's No. 1 ranked rushing offense. Buffalo ran for 195 yards on just 26 carries in Week 1 in their losing effort to the NY Jets, averaging a tremendous 7.5 yards per carry.
Unfortunately, Freddy Jackson left the game with 15 yards on six carries, but it was third-year running back C.J. Spiller to the rescue, assaulting New York on the ground. Spiller rushed for 169 yards and a touchdown on just 14 carries (yes, that's correct). He averaged a superhuman 12 yards per carry for the game. So, Sunday afternoon the Buffalo Bills will host the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2 and visit then the Cleveland Browns in Week 3. Kansas City had just the 15th-best run-stopping performance last Sunday and will certainly be less effective on the road this Sunday. Who do you think will win?
