Devin Singletary has earned the featured running back job

For the second straight week, Devin Singletary has been the team’s best running back and at this point, it should be Singletary’s job as long as he continues to play like this.

This week against the Miami Dolphins, the Bills had both Devin Singletary and Zack Moss active and both were effective but it appears there are defined roles for both moving forward. Devin Singletary had 13 carries for 82 yards and one rushing touchdown along with two receptions for eight yards.

The play of the game for Singletary came on the second play for the offense when he took a handoff 46-yards for the first touchdown of the game.

He appeared to be the running back who will get a majority of the work with Moss being primarily a short-yardage, goal-line back. The second-year running back did a good job in this role as he was able to score two touchdowns inside the 10-yard line against the Dolphins.

There is no question that this is the best the run game has looked for some time, dating back to last season. If the Bills are able to get similar production that they have the first two weeks, this offense should be good enough to remain competitive.
