Bills run ‘D’ takes a leap

Posted by Chris Brown on October 31, 2011 – 1:18 pm

Ranked 30th in the league against the run heading into Sunday’s game against the Redskins, Buffalo’s stout run ‘D’ at the Rogers Centre improved their season average considerably.

Going into the game Buffalo’s run defense was giving up 135.7 rushing yards per outing. After holding Washington to 26 rushing yards in their 23-0 victory, the Bills dropped that season figure to 120 rushing yards per game.

In shaving 15.7 yards off their season average Buffalo jumped from 30th against the run to 19th in just one week. The 26 rushing yards allowed was the 10th lowest total permitted in a game in team history.

The Bills also tied a team record by not allowing a single first down rushing Sunday.
