Last season the Buffalo Bills were in the middle of the pack when it came to stopping the run against their opponents. They ranked 15th against the run in terms of giving up yards. It started off rough where in five of their first six games, Buffalo gave up over 100 yards rushing which includes three games of 140+ yards.

From Week 7 and on, the Bills only allowed four games of 100+ rushing yards. This past offseason, the Bills lost defensive linemen Tim Settle and Leonard Floyd who were useful in run support. DaQuan Jones was brought back on a two-year deal and Brandon Beane drafted Duke defensive tackle DeWayne Carter who brings a lot of leadership experience as a rookie.

Buffalo’s defense is going to look a lot different within the secondary. The core three between Tre’Davious White, Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde are no longer with the Bills. The defensive line will look similar but with some changes. At the end of the day, Bobby Babich and Sean McDermott are going to need to make sure that this defense doesn’t let a run game get out of control in 2024.

This list was difficult to make because of the running backs that the Bills will face this upcoming season.

Here are the five worst running backs the Buffalo Bills will face in 2024.
