Before we fully turn our attention towards the Buffalo Bills’ Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions, today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks leads off with final thoughts from Buffalo’s 31-23 triumph over the Cleveland Browns, including how running back James Cook took advantage of his snaps to make a big impression and fuel a resurgent ground game.
Bills 31, Browns 23: final thoughts
Running backs James Cook and Devin Singletary each rushed for 86 yards as the Bills (finally) got their ground game on track against Cleveland. What else stood out from Buffalo's win over the Browns? The interior defensive linemen, led by DaQuan Jones and Ed Oliver, keyed a run defense that contained Nick Chubb. Linebacker Matt Milano and Jordan Poyer demonstrated how much they mean for the Bills defense, tight end Dawson Knox showed why he needs to be more involved in the offense moving forward, and wide receiver Stefon Diggs proved how big of a leader he is.
