C.J. Spiller refuses to let a season-opening dud get in the way of his pursuit to establish himself as one of the NFL's elite.
So long as he keeps his hands on the ball and frustrations in check, the Buffalo Bills running back sees no reason to worry.
The first step Wednesday was putting behind a forgettable performance in a 23-21 loss to New England on Sunday. He lost a fumble and lacked patience in finishing with 17 carries for 41 yards.
That's a considerable drop for someone who finished second in the NFL in averaging just over 6 yards per carry last year.
The key, he says, is bouncing back this Sunday when Buffalo hosts Carolina (0-1).
