ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- There was a lot of head-scratching when the Buffalo Bills used the No. 9 overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft on C.J. Spiller. With Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch already on the depth chart and a roster full of questions to answer, running back seemed to be the last position Buffalo needed to address. Two games into Spiller’s third season, no one is scratching his head about the pick any more. Building on last season’s strong performances down the stretch and his 169-yard rushing effort in the 2012 opener, Spiller went over the century mark again, scored two touchdowns and set up another with a nifty reception as the Bills rebounded with a 35-17 rout of the Kansas City Chiefs at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Clemson All-American started in place of the injured Jackson -- just as he had during the final five games of last season -- and responded with 123 yards and two scores on 15 carries and also caught three passes for 47 yards as the Bills evened their reco...

B-Lo is back with big win

The Bills beat the Chiefs 35-17. I’d like to take a moment to thank the Buffalo Bills for saving me a lot of time and money on therapy. Technically, it’s the least they could do, since they were the reason for my impending self-imposed intervention/treatment. CJ Spiller’s glorious 123 yards and two TDs, Fitz’s nerve-wracking 34 yards rushing, Leodis McKelvin’s 88-yard...
