Bills run ‘D’ now 4 straight of less than 90

Buffalo’s run defense has now made it four straight games of surrendering less than 90 yards rushing to their opponent. That’s something that hasn’t been accomplished by a Bills defense in this century.

Buffalo defense held St. Louis to 67 rushing yards. Steven Jackson had just 64 yards on 19 carries and averaged just 3.4 per rush. The Bills four-game streak is the longest since the 1999 season when the Bills had the number one defense in football and went four straight without allowing 90 rushing yards from games two through five that season.

“Yeah I mean you watch them on film and you let Steven Jackson get going and he can hurt you,” said Kyle Williams. “He can bleed the clock and he can do a lot of damaging things to a defense. We were able to control that, but in the end we were not able to win the game or control the game.”
