Running backs came up a touch short of goals - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"Buffalo's running game likely would have produced more if the defense had done a better job of limiting yards and points and helping the offense get more chances to get on the field.

Those factors notwithstanding, the running game still could have been better."
