Bills rookie RB C.J. Spiller continues to impress after performance against Bengals
With the team’s top two running backs sidelined with injuries, Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller is making his case for why he deserves significant playing time during his rookie season.
For the second straight game, Spiller looked impressive in the Bills 35-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals Saturday night. He finished with 52 yards rushing and two touchdowns—including a 20-yard touchdown run right before halftime. Spiller also caught two passes for 33 yards. Not bad for a rookie considering the Bengals’ defense ranked seventh last season at stopping the run.
It came as a shock to some when the Bills passed on quarterback Jimmy Clausen in the first round of this year’s draft after they selected Spiller with the ninth overall pick. Spiller may have an unexpected opportunity to start for Buffalo at the beginning of the season if Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson aren’t ready to go. If he can manage to play at the same level from preseason, Spiller may find himself as a strong candidate for Offensive Rookie of the Year.
