Bills | Run game struggling

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey said it is a challenge distributing carries between RBs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller. In Week 5, both backs had almost an identical snap count; 24 for Spiller and 22 for Jackson. The week prior, it was 36 for Jackson and 31 for Spiller. Both backs have struggled recently. Jackson has 58 rushing yards on 22 carries since returning from a sprained knee that caused him to miss two games, in addition to four receptions for 55 yards. Spiller has just 57 yards on 15 carries during the team's two-game losing streak, with only one catch for 5 yards in that span. There have been a couple of factors contributing to the run game's problems. One of those is the shuffling of the offensive line due to injuries. Another is the score, especially in the second half of the past two games; the Bills fell so far behind they had no choice but to abandon the run.
