Inside The Bills

Fred and C.J. again a productive duo

Posted by Chris Brown on October 22, 2013 – 4:37 pm

Bills running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller have not been the healthiest of backs through the first seven games of the season, but it hasn’t hindered their production all that much. In fact Jackson and Spiller have Buffalo in a category all their own.

 

Fred Jackson (380 – 5th)  and C.J. Spiller (362 – 8th) each rank in the top 10 in the AFC among 2013 rushing leaders. The Bills are the only NFL team to feature two or more running backs who each have 350 rushing yards or more through Week 7 and the first in the NFL through game seven since 2011 (Houston: Arian Foster and Ben Tate).

 

Jackson and Spiller also mark the first Bills tandem to post 350 rushing yards each or more through Game seven since 1982. They are the fifth such duo in team history to accomplish the feat. Here’s a look at the other backfield duos from Bills history that did it.
