3. Damien Harris finishes with double digit rushing touchdowns

When the Bills signed Damien Harris in free agency on a prove-it one year deal, it was a low-risk, high-reward deal for the Bills. For the past four seasons in New England, Harris was solidified as the main back in the offense until injuries held him out and Rhamondre Stevenson took over last season. Now that Harris is in a running back committee that is led by second-year back James Cook, Harris does not need to be the main guy in the backfield. 

The Bills offense is able to get into the red zone and even inside the ten-yard line. However, they did struggle to punch the ball into the endzone once they were in that position because they did not have a reliable back in the backfield to push his way for six points. Bills fans should be familiar with Harris, who used to be a kryptonite for the Bills’ defense in between the tackles.

If the Bills are able to set themselves up within striking distance of the endzone and want to keep the ball out of Allen’s hands to avoid injury, Harris will be that guy to take the hits so that Cook does not have to.
