James Cook finishes with an average of 6.5 yards per carry
One of the biggest criticisms of the Buffalo Bills offense over the past few years has been a lack of run game to complement their passing game. However, that problem looks to have been fixed with the emergence of James Cook.
After running for over 100 yards in Week 2, Cook came within two yards of surpassing that total as he had 98 rushing yards on 15 attempts. The thing that Cook brings to this offense is the big play threat as he once again broke a big run in Week 3 that went for 34 yards.
He finished the game with an average of 6.5 yards per carry which is impressive considering he did have 15 rushing attempts. Prior to the Monday Night games in Week 3, Cook is second in the league in rushing yards with 267 but is the only running back with 30 or more carries who has an average over six.
It has been an impressive start to the season for James Cook and has been the running back the offense has needed for awhile now.
