Buffalo Bills 2013 NFL Season Week 2: Carolina Panthers’ DeAngelo Willliams Is Third Head Of Cerberus
Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has been an above average running back for his career, nearly averaging five yards per carry. The biggest problem, however, is that he’s been riddled with injuries for the majority of his career; he has only had one full year where he played and started in all 16 games, and that was 2008. Another knock on his game is that he is a one dimensional running back, as he isn’t really known for catching the ball, regardless of who the quarterback has been. This is likely due to his exceptionally low center of gravity, as he is only 5-foot-8, 210 pounds.
The Buffalo Bills, despite allowing almost 150 yards rushing last week against the New England Patriots, looked considerably better at stopping the run then previous years. Additionally, the Panthers lack a two headed monster at running back, so if the Bills shut down Williams, they will force the Panthers to rely on the pass game, which isn’t anything truly to write home about outside of Steve Smith or Greg Olsen. The best person to shut down Williams and the Panthers running attack will be nose tackle Marcel Dareus, as he is paid to clog up running holes up the gut and neutralize the interior lineman, including three-time Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil.
It’ll be interesting to see if the Panthers can get their running game started against the Buffalo Bills; or will the Bills actually shut down a team for the first time since last year against the Kansas City Chiefs?
