Running game non-existent
Allen’s career day through the air overshadowed the fact that the Bills’ running backs did not accomplish much in this game.
Devin Singletary and Zack Moss combined for 41 yards on the ground while Allen had 12 carries for 59 yards. In this game, it didn’t matter as much since the Bills passing game was in a groove but when you have two capable runners in Singletary and Moss that can make it easier to close out a game where you have a three-score lead.
It’s tough to criticize the Bills running backs when they fail to record double-digit in carries but eventually, the team will have to adjust against tougher pass defenses.
Luckily, Moss and Singletary benefitted from Allen’s reluctancy to throw the ball considering Moss notched his first career touchdown. The running game still managed 98 yards but considering more than half of that was produced by Allen, you wonder what the team has in store to get more out of their duo in the backfield.
