Buffalo Bills commit to Devin Singletary at running back

The run game underwhelmed for most of the year and the Buffalo Bills struggled to find something that would work. It got so bad that in the first half against the Bucs, Buffalo didn’t have a single rushing attempt from their running backs.

In the second half, Singletary would become involved and finished with 52 rushing yards on four attempts. However, from that point forward the third-year running back was the primary ball-carrier and featured running back for this offense.

In the final seven games of the season, there was only one game were Singletary played less than 75% of the offensive snaps (a mark he only broke once in the first 12 games). He would have 482 rushing yards and eight rushing yards in those games and the Bills went 5-2.

It remains to be seen what the Buffalo Bills are going to do moving forward at the position but there is no question that the offense looked the best it did all season when Devin Singletary was the team’s featured running back.
