Devin Singletary regains his role as featured running back

In Week 1, the coaching staff seemed to evenly split the work at running back between Devin Singletary and Zack Moss. This week though, it was clear that Singletary was the primary running back with 37 snaps (54%) but he struggled to find much success on the ground with only 19 rushing yards on six attempts.

Meanwhile, Zack Moss wasn’t much of a factor in this game with only 13 snaps (19%) but had almost the same number of rushing yards as Singletary with 17. However, all 17 came on one carry while the other two carries didn’t net any yards.

The fact that the Buffalo Bills got up so big allowed the team to give rookie James Cook some meaningful snaps this week. In Week 1, he had only one carry, which ended up being a fumble, and didn’t see the field much after that.

However, this week, Cook would play over 25% of the offensive snaps and had 11 carries on 18 snaps. He would finish with 53 rushing yards. The hope is that this game can be a confidence boost for the rookie moving forward.
