Bills run ‘D’ tops over past month

Posted by Chris Brown on December 3, 2012 – 2:23 pm

Buffalo’s improved run defense of late has been well documented. But after allowing just 50 rushing yards Sunday, the Bills run defense over the past month has been the best in the NFL.

Over the last four games, Buffalo is first in yards per carry average allowed (3.1 ypc) ahead of Tampa Bay (3.3), Denver, Cleveland and San Francisco (all 3.4).

The Bills are also third in the league over that four-game span in rushing yards allowed per game (78.5) behind only Washington (57.5) and Cleveland (65.7).

In fact Buffalo’s overall defense over the past four games is among the league leaders. The Bills are allowing just under 270 yards of total offense the last four times out (269.8), which ranks second best in football over that stretch. Only Pittsburgh has been better (239.6).
