State of the running backs
Devin Singletary took a major step forward during his third season with the Bills, demonstrating he could handle the pressure of serving as Buffalo’s lead back. Especially over the second half of the year, Singletary was an effective and efficient runner for a Bills ground game that enjoyed a resurgence, becoming a proficient pass catcher out of the backfield while showing improvement as a pass blocker. The same cannot be said of Moss, who regressed after a promising rookie season.
