Run game battle

Posted by Chris Brown on October 30, 2012 – 12:23 pm

Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller had one of their most encouraging dual performances in Buffalo’s last outing against Tennessee. But both of them they’ll have to turn it up another notch to match Houston’s high-powered rushing attack rush for rush.

“They’ve got two great backs in Arian and Tate,” said Fred Jackson. “It’ll be good for us. We know that they want to get their ground game started, and that’s a way to keep us off the field, and likewise.  Between C.J. and I, if we can get the running game going, get some production out of us, we think we can give ourselves a good chance to do some things, too.” 

Jackson is well aware of Houston’s formidable run front. The Texans rank fourth in the league against the run.

“Good defense. Probably one of the best defenses, if not the best defense, we’ll see this year,” said Jackson. “J.J. (Watt) is playing out of his mind right now. It’ll be a good challenge for us, but to get to where we want to be, we gotta play teams like this. We have to go down to their place, which is going to be a tough thing for us to do. We like what we got here, and what we can do. So, it’ll be a good challenge for us, but we look forward to it.”
