C.J. Spiller 66-Yard Screen TD Gives Bills 14-9 Lead On Jets

When Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller touches the football, good things happen. This is not a lesson that Chan Gailey has learned particularly well this season, but everyone else knows it.

Trailing 9-7 in the second quarter of today's game against the New York Jets, facing a 3rd and 10 while getting utterly dominated, Spiller caught a short screen pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick and promptly took it 66 yards for a go-ahead touchdown. Buffalo has the lead back, as they're up 14-9 with roughly three minutes remaining in the first half.

Spiller has four carries for 15 yards in the contest, and this lengthy touchdown pass won't help him in his bid to break Jim Brown's 49-year old record for the highest single season yards-per-rush average in NFL history. It's Spiller's second receiving touchdown of the season; he had a score on a screen pass in a Week 3 win over Cleveland, as well.

New York has dominated this game for a half, but two big plays - one from Bryan Scott, and now one from Spiller - has Buffalo out in front.
