The Miami Dolphins held off the Buffalo Bills Sunday afternoon with a 30-23 victory that was keyed by running back Reggie Bush. While Matt Moore put together a solid day, Reggie Bush dominated with 203 rushing yards and a touchdown. His biggest run was a 76-yarder for the touchdown that would prove to be the difference-maker.
Bush has always been a talented running back, but you could argue he has almost come out of nowhere to dominate in the latter stages of 2011. He was a cast off by the New Orleans Saints and was expected to occupy a complementary role in Miami to rookie Daniel Thomas. Through the first three-quarters of the season, Bush was up and down as he has been much of his career.
However, the last three games, Bush has been playing as well as any time in his career. The last three games, Bush has 406 rushing yards, averaging 6.66 yards per carry (seems fitting that he sold his soul for a few big games!). As fantasy football wraps up with most leagues in their Super Bowl this coming week, Bush has become as good a start as any in the NFL. The Dolphins travel to New England this week to face a highly questionable Patriots defense. Bush could fall apart at any time, but for now he is a must start.
