In Week 1 against Kansas City, Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson was superb, logging 21 touches for 117 yards in the Bills' 41-7 win. He was better in Week 2, logging 17 touches for 140 yards and two touchdowns as the Bills stunned Oakland, 38-35.

Jackson earns our Week 3 game ball for what, in our opinion, was his best game as a professional in yesterday's 34-31 win over the New England Patriots. Because the Bills trailed so early, Jackson carried just 12 times, but still gained 74 yards on those carries while scoring a game-tying touchdown. More importantly, he was critical to the team's passing attack, hauling in five passes for 87 yards - including a 38-yard jaunt that set up Buffalo's game-winning field goal.

New England has had problems with Jackson before, and Bill Belichick is the first outside of the home locker room at Ralph Wilson Stadium to sing Jackson's praises. Jackson was still able to post 9.5 yards per touch in the win. Through three weeks, Jackson has been the NFL's best running back. He was, once again, the best player on the field on Sunday.
