1.) How will the run blocking scheme improve for the Buffalo Bills?

The last running back to run for over 1,000 yards for the Bills was LeSean McCoy in 2017 (having rushed for 1,138 yards). The Bills have not had a consistent run game since McCoy was in the backfield. They have had a rotation of Devin Singletary, Frank Gore, James Cook, and arguably their best running threat Josh Allen since then.

As the game has become more pass-happy, the Bills are not struggling in that department, but they have seemed to lose a touch on the run game. Part of this could be the scheme that is being used up front by the offensive line. 

Offensive line coach Aaron Kromer will have to find a way to develop the run blocking scheme to make it consistent and take pressure off of Allen. The Bills are built to pass protect which is great, but when the short yardage is needed, that is where the Bills have to be able to pick up the two-to-three yards on the ground rather than trying to pick it up through the air.
