The run game was very effective early against the Minnesota Vikings

The Buffalo Bills all week wondered if they would have their star quarterback for this game as he dealt with an elbow injury. He, fortunately, was able to play but it seemed early that the Bills wanted to establish the run to hopefully take some pressure off Allen and his arm.

Devin Singletary was very effective early in the game as he had two touchdowns on the team’s first three drives. The fourth-year running back had 32 rushing yards on just those two drives but after that, the run game couldn’t really get anything going outside of Josh Allen. Singletary finished the game with 47 rushing yards on 13 carries and those two touchdowns.

It is hard to know exactly why the team couldn’t keep the same success and it could have been due to adjustments the Vikings made as none of the running backs really could get going after those first few drives.
