Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller faced all kinds of doubts about his ability to fill the void left by running back Fred Jackson, who landed on injured reserve. In today’s game against the Tennessee Titans, Spiller broke off the best run of his career, a 35-yard run that nearly ended on a sour note.
Nearing the plane of the goal line, it looked as though Spiller fumbled the ball, forced out by Titans safety Michael Griffin. The refs ruled it a fumble, which would have resulted in a touchback since it bounced out of the end zone.
But today might just be Spiller and Bills’ lucky day. The call was reviewed and subsequently reversed, giving Spiller a touchdown on the recovery, and infuriating Titans’ fans.

It is definitely a close call, to say the least. That gave Buffalo a 7-3 lead in the first quarter.
