Bills RB C.J. Spiller had a slow start, racking up negative yards in the early going. But you have to credit the Bills for trying to get the ball into the hands of their playmaker.
The Bills also rolled out the ‘Wild Cat’ with Spiller taking the ball directly from center. Spiller also got the ball thrown his way, too, with two receptions for 33 yards. This is the kind of thing that shows that coach Chan Gailey is looking for ways to maximize Spiller’s talent.
And Spiller just scored on a 20-yard touchdown, finishing the half with 52 rushing yards. So in other words, 85 yards in one half, two touchdowns after starting with minus-16 yards on his first three attempts. Good thing there was no overreaction to that start.
