Buffalo Bills Ground Out Win Against Dallas
A meaningless game on a cold, rainy day at the end of December, but Buffalo Bills fans turned out anyway. The Bills got back to the ground and pound game that Rex Ryan promised when he arrived running for 236 yards and a pair of touchdowns and it was enough for a 16-6 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Mike Gillislee became the fourth running back in Bills history to run for touchdowns of 50 yards or more in consecutive games. He followed up a 60-yard scoring run against Washington last week with a 50-yarder in the fourth quarter against the Cowboys to seal the victory. Karlos Williams added 76 rushing yards including a one yard touchdown run. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor scrambled for 67 yards while completing 13 of 18 passes for 179 yards.
With the win the Bills go to 7-8 on the season with a chance to finish at .500 with a victory next Sunday against the New York Jets. But it's a much bigger game for the Jets. The Jets need a win to make the playoffs. They're out with a loss. No doubt that Rex Ryan would love to beat his former team with those stakes on the line.
There had been some speculation the game against the Jets would be moved to Sunday night, but the game will remain a 1 pm start next Sunday afternoon.
