It was expected that Buffalo would hand the starting job to Spiller and plan for the future. But the former Clemson star has started the season slowly, at least as a runner, after a terrific preseason. Spiller has just 14 carries for 49 yards and a team-high 12 catches for 45 yards. In the Week 4 loss to the Jets, he was barely used in getting two carries and catching just one pass.
So instead the Bills will go with Jackson as the starter, although Spiller certainly will see more work with Lynch gone. Jackson finished last season as the feature back. He rushed for 1,062 yards and, as their kickoff returner, gained 2,516 all-purpose yards, fourth-most in NFL history. Jackson is a more traditional runner, while Spiller is a bigger threat in the receiving game. Jackson has 20 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown this season.
Buffalo’s offense ranks last in the NFL in yards per game (237.2), passing yards per game and tied for 27th in scoring (15.2). The Bills are +1.5 on Bodog’s NFL odds for Sunday’s home game with Jacksonville.
The Lynch trade is emblematic of the Bills’ struggles this decade. Since 2000, the Bills have had 12 first-round picks, including Lynch. Only six are still with the team. Of the first-rounders still on the Bills’ roster, none has ever been to the Pro Bowl.
