Run ‘D’ not perfect, but better in 2nd half

Posted by Chris Brown on October 20, 2013 – 11:12 pm

The Bills run defense has been a bit of a trouble spot for Buffalo this season. Coming into the game they ranked 28th in the league giving up 124 rushing yards per game. And though Miami finished right around that average with a total of 120 rushing yards and a very good 4.8 average, Buffalo’s run defense was decidedly better in the second half thanks to some halftime adjustments.

After giving up 5.7 per carry in the first half, Buffalo only gave up an average of 3.6 yards per carry in the second half as Miami got just 40 yards on 11 second half rushes.

“They did a great job of adjusting the second half, just trying to stop the run,” said Lamar Miller. “We just have to find a way to win the game.”

The numbers at the end might not look good, but Buffalo did take a step in the right direction Sunday with their second half run defense, much like their performance the previous week against Cincinnati.
