Inside The Bills

Polar opposites offensively

Posted by Chris Brown on October 1, 2013 – 2:05 pm

The Bills and Browns square off on Thursday night in Cleveland and their two offenses have taken different approaches to moving the football through the first month of the season.

Both clubs have new head coaches in Doug Marrone and Rob Chudzinski, but through the first four games their play calling has been very different.

While the dichotomy in offensive approach can be partly attributed to how some of the first four games played out for each team, the two coaches don’t appear to subscribe to a similar philosophy.

The Bills lead the league in rushing attempts 147 in four games averaging almost 37 per game. Not surprisingly, they also rank 24th in pass attempts with 130.

Meanwhile Cleveland is tied for the league lead (St. Louis) in pass attempts with 183 and stand 27th in rushing attempts with 80 on the season (20 per game).
