To begin the season, the Buffalo Bills run game looked as broken as it did in 2020. This lasted up until the Buccaneers game. Now, over the last four games, Devin Singletary has totaled 287 yards and four TDs on 51 carries. Is this a product of a better OL play or has Singletary found another gear?
Devin Singletary gave us a glimpse of what could be to come in the preseason. Singletary put on a lot of muscle before the season started, which gave a lot of Bills fans hope that we could see a new and improved Devin Singletary. And, quite often this year, he’s been able to hit the hole hard and run over defenders; something we haven’t seen since his rookie year in 2019.
The Bills have had a good amount of reshuffling on the OL this year, going with four different combinations in four weeks. But now it looks like, after 17 weeks, they’ve finally found one that they like… and it involves Ryan Bates starting at LG over Jon Feliciano. That, in part, can be attributed to Singletary’s boost in production recently.
The Buffalo Bills found their run game just at the perfect time too. As we saw in the playoffs last year, the Bills were stalling in their own end of the field too many times because they were too one dimensional. Now, if they can get a run game going, opposing defenses won’t be able to focus on one thing & contain Josh Allen.
With one more game left in the season, Singletary has totaled 782 yards, 6 TDs, and a 4.6 yard average on 169 carries.
