Ralph Wilson Stadium - The Buffalo Bills roster looks a lot different now, in the bye week, than it did when the season began five weeks ago. And the biggest changes have come on the offensive side of the ball.
With last week's trade of running back Marshawn Lynch, last year's thousand yard rusher, Fred Jackson, is now the main man in the offensive backfield now. But Jackson only got twelve carries in the Jaguars game last Sunday and the Bills threw it two him two times.
Fred Jackson says he'd like to see more of the football.
"Any running back likes to get the ball about 20-times a game," Jackson told News 4 Sports, "whether that is 15-carries, five receptions, or whether it's just 20-carries. I think that's kinda where my number is, I'm sure that's how CJ feels. The more carries you get the better you feel you have a feel of the game, and about twenty would be my target."
Jackson and the Bills offense have had trouble converting third downs, so they have trouble staying on the field in the first five games. That means fewer carries for Jackson and fewer opportunities for everyone on offense to make plays.
"We just have to continue to find ways to feed him the ball," says Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. "Like I've said all along, the third and manageables are what we've been good at, so we have to stay out of those third and longs.
Fitzpatrick also says Jackson gets stronger the more carries he gets.
"Fred's one of those backs that as the game goes along, he gets stronger. That's one thing, we gotta make sure we're still in the game, or makes sure we have a lead late in the game, so we can continue to give him the ball and let him do what he does best."
