Inside The Bills

Where the Bills rank

Posted by Chris Brown on November 10, 2008 – 3:31 pm

Naturally the Bills three game losing streak has them slipping in a lot of offensive categories in terms of the league rankings.

In the past two weeks, Buffalo has fallen from 22nd to 29th in rushing. Only Cincinnati, Detroit and Indianapolis have been worse this season.

In terms of yards per rush average, the Bills have slipped from 25th to 30th over the past two weeks.

Points per game has dropped from 13th in the league to 20th.

Fortunately for the Bills they’re facing a Cleveland defense whose rankings are more comparable to the first four opponents Buffalo faced this season.

The Browns defense is 27th overall, 26th against the run and 22nd against the pass. They’re also 29th in the league in stopping teams on third down. And their red zone defense ranks 28th in the NFL as they’re giving up touchdowns better than 60% of the time.
