Running Backs

It was once again a very balanced three-back attack for the Buffalo Bills offense as Latavius Murray led the way with 32 yards with James Cook and Damien Harris chipping in with 29 yards each. The difference was a rushing touchdown by Cook as well as a 48-yard reception by the second-year running back.

The Buffalo Bills have continued to find production from this trio of running backs that is forcing defenses to respect the run game outside of Josh Allen since probably the days of LeSean McCoy.

James Cook is the key to this group though as he is the big play threat, as evidenced by the 48-yard reception. However, he also has shown he can handle a majority of the workload on the ground as he has not had at least 10 rushing attempts every game this season.

The other two running backs do a good job of spelling Cook and being effective in limited carries as Murray had only four but did have a 29-yard run while Harris had only six but averaged 4.8 yards per carry.

Week 4 Grade: B+
