Bills-Cowboys final score: 236 rushing yards key 16-6 Buffalo win

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills ran for 236 yards between three players as they out-uglied the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16, winning by a score of 16-6.

The Buffalo Bills improved to 7-8 on the 2015 season with an ugly, 16-6 win over the Dallas Cowboys at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday.

This was a game that took place between two playoff-eliminated teams dealing with a slew of injuries on both sides of the ball, and the result was about what you would have expected: a low-scoring affair without much in the way of big plays. The Bills were able to cobble together more, chiefly on the ground, which helped them come away with the win.

Mike Gillislee (nine carries, 93 yards, one touchdown), Karlos Williams (17 carries, 76 yards, one touchdown), and Tyrod Taylor (14 carries, 67 yards) proved too much for the Cowboys to handle on the ground, combining for 236 rushing yards and two scores in the win. Gillislee put the game on ice late in the fourth quarter with a 50-yard score, giving him his second score of 50 or more yards for a second straight game.

Buffalo closes out their 2015 regular season schedule next week against the New York Jets, who are in the midst of a fairly intense AFC wild card chase. We'll talk about the season finale more as the week progresses; for now, relish a Bills win.
