The Buffalo Bills kicked off the 2022 season in dominant fashion with their 31-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams. While the Bills had three preseason games, the coaching staff elected to keep most of their starters out of most of the games which creates a challenge for determining the roles some players might have on the team this year.

On Thursday night, it was the first opportunity to really get a chance to see what this team might look like and a look at those roles. These were six interesting notes from that game and it will be curious to see if this was just for this game or could be more of a trend.

Almost an even split role at running back

Towards the end of the season, Devin Singletary was getting almost exclusively all the work at running back. It was expected that would change this season due to the addition of James Cook.

That split did take place against the Los Angeles Rams but it wasn’t Cook who split the work with Singletary but rather Zack Moss. Devin Singletary still led the way for the Bills with 35 snaps while Moss had 22 for close to a 60/40 split.

The question is whether this was always the plan or if Moss got more snaps due to James Cook fumbling the ball on the first carry of his career. This definitely looks like the Bills are planning to have a committee at the position but will interesting if Moss continues to get a majority of those carries after Singletary.
