Running Back

James Cook once again was the leading running back for the offense and he had 17 carries for 123 yards with an impressive 7.2 yards per carry. He also was a big factor in the passing game catching all four of his targets for 36 yards, including a 26-yard reception.

However, it wasn't only Cook who had success out of the backfield and the Bills were able to get both Damien Harris and Latavius Murray involved. Harris would have seven attempts for 33 yards and a touchdown while Murray added 22 rushing yards on six carries and had the Bills' first rushing touchdown of the game.

A byproduct of the effectiveness of the Bills running back is Josh Allen didn't have to run much with only three rushing attempts. The coaching staff wanted to limit the hits that Allen takes and with a running back trio the Bills now have, it looks like they might be able to do that.
