Found November 08, 2012 on Fox Sports:
The Colts employed a RBBC approach on Thursday night and left expectant Vick Ballard owners wanting. Rashad Jennings was near-invisible against the normally generous Indianapolis run defense. In the end, the lone player to make his mark on the ground in the Week 10 opener was Andrew Luck. Can anybody top his two rushing touchdowns on Sunday? Let's get into this week's running back "Lineup Calls." Heroes (Exclude Doug Martin, Arian Foster, Ray Rice, Matt Forte, LeSean McCoy, Marshawn Lynch and Adrian Peterson) Stevan Ridley vs. BUF How many ways can I say? The Buffalo run defense is absolutely terrible, ceding 5.7 yards per carry with 14 touchdowns. Opponents have rolled up 44 runs of at least 10 yards against the Bills. Light up the scoreboard this week and get Ridley into your lineup. Michael Turner at NO Turner had a flashback moment on Sunday night, including a fantastic 43-yard sprint to the outside. He's a huge play this week against the dismal Ne...

49ers RB Gore loves big holes created by O-line

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer Frank Gore looks at his three 100-yard rushing performances, four touchdowns and overall output in the season's first half and is quick to praise an unheralded offensive line that's helping him do it. Helping San Francisco's entire offense shine, too. These big boys block all over the...

Big boys up front are Gore-ing the opposition

Frank Gore looks at his three 100-yard rushing performances, four touchdowns and overall stellar output in the season's first half and is quick to praise an unheralded offensive line that plays such an integral part in helping him do it.

Spiller says he's 'fine' with his role, but he likely isn't

BY DAN BEGNOCHEWhen asked Monday whether he thought he was being underutilized in the Buffalo Bills' offensive scheme, running back C.J. Spiller tried his darndest to say the right thing.Spiller told reporters in the locker room that he “feels fine” about his role, which sounded much more like, “How do you think I feel?”But after cleverly tip-toeing through the rest of...

For Buffalo, 2012 brings back old memories

  Every season has a life of its own for every team. Every fan base can point to a game or two in every given season that ultimately showed the rest of the country what a football team was made of. Unfortunately it appears both of those games for the Bills will come at the hands of the New England Patriots. Again. It’s been 12 years since the Bills made the playoffs, but they...

Rams-49ers Preview

JEFF BARTL STATS Writer The San Francisco 49ers' stellar defense is a major reason they enter the second half of the season in control of the NFC West, at times overshadowing an offense possessing an efficient quarterback and the NFL's best running game. Alex Smith, Frank Gore and the rest of the 49ers' offense look to take advantage of a St. Louis Rams team that hasn...

All Roads Go Through Buffalo

Let’s be clear about something right off the bat – the Buffalo Bills are not going to win the AFC East. It’s not in play. If the Bills win the East, I’ll walk from Rhode Island to Buffalo and re-enact the movie “Into The Wild.” I can’t stress enough how much the Bills are not a contender for anything other then a top-5 pick. Their quarterback hasn’t adjusted from...

Field Goals: Midseason awards

Last month I offered up team awards after the first quarter of the season. Ironically, those awards came immediately after the offensive and defensive unraveling against New England. The halfway point awards will be presented the week prior to another showdown with New England. Things haven’t changed much since the New England loss. The run defense continues to struggle...
