The New York Jets executed a blueprint for beating the
C.J. Spiller knows it.
"That's going to be the model," the Bills running
back said this morning. "If I'm a defensive coordinator, that'd be my
biggest thing, too, to stop our run and pretty much make our rookie quarterback
The Jets eliminated Spiller from relevancy. He averaged less
than a yard on 11 touches before leaving with a leg injury early in the third
quarter. Fred Jackson had a 59-yard run, but gained only 13 yards on his other
six carries. The Jets stuffed six rushing attempts behind the scrimmage line.
In the red zone, the Bills ran nine times for 15 yards. Spiller fumbled once, recovering it himself. Five of their red-zone carries were for 1 yard or less.
