Can the Bills offense run against this defense?

The last two games, the Buffalo Bills running game has been very productive as they had almost 200 rushing yards against the Broncos in Week 10. They followed it up with 130 rushing yards against the Jets with James Cook leading the way in both games with 182 rushing yards during this stretch.

However, the Jets and the Broncos are two of the worst run defenses in the NFL with the Broncos allowing the most per game at 160 yards and the Jets third at 137.6 yards per game.

Meanwhile, the Eagles have been incredible against the run and are allowing the fewest rushing yards per game at only 76.5 yards per game. One of the reasons is that teams don't really even attempt to run against this defense as they have only 190 rushing attempts on the season, which is the least in the NFL and 35 less than the next team.

The Buffalo Bills can't abandon the run game entirely but Joe Brady will need to be creative in how he gets the ball to the running backs. This could be a week with more screens or quick passes out wide to the running backs to try and get them out in space to pick up chunks of yards.
