Devin Singletary

One of the biggest surprises in December has been the play of Devin Singletary. The coaching staff has committed to Singletary as their featured running back and he has responded with three really good games.

The Bills have made sure to get the ball to him either with rushing attempts, like in Week 15 against the Panthers with 22, or through the air. In Week 14, Singletary had seven targets against the Bucs and then six targets last week against the Patriots.

On Wednesday, head coach Sean McDermott talked about Devin Singletary and singled out a specific play from the Patriots game that he called one of his favorite plays of the year.

The Atlanta Falcons defense has struggled against the run at times this year and is allowing just over 120 rushing yards per game, which is the 11th highest total in the NFL. It would not be surprising to see Singletary once again be involved in the game plan and respond with another good game.
