Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller has been nursing an ankle sprain for several weeks now. He was listed as probable against the Kansas City Chiefs but has been getting limited carries behind Fred Jackson. However, whenever Spiller did touch the ball, he has destroyed the Chiefs. At the moment, Spiller has 118 rushing yards on just 10 carries.
Spiller gave fans another scare in the second quarter. After one big run, he came up limping and went to the sidelines for a few plays. It didn't turn out to be anything serious. Spiller came back at the start of the third quarter and ripped off a monster 61-yard run down to the Chiefs' 19-yard line. Spiller used his special blend of speed and power to embarrass a normally strong Chiefs defense, breaking several tackles along the way.
Unfortunately, since this is still the Bills we're talking about, they couldn't capitalize on the red zone opportunity. Jeff Tuel threw a 99-yard pick-six and the Chiefs tied things up after going into halftime trailing, 10-3. New quarterback, same old Bills.
