Spiller's performance was the first 100-yard rushing game by a former Clemson player in an NFL game since Jan. 7, 2002 when Terry Allen had 23 rushes for 133 yards for the Baltimore Ravens against the Minnesota Vikings. That was the final game of Allen's career.
Spiller still has many more to play. The second-year pro who was a
first-round draft pick of the Bills after he was named a unanimous
first-team All-American at Clemson in 2009, went over the 500-yard
rushing mark for the season with his performance on Saturday. He now
has 94 carries for 501 yards and four touchdowns rushing, and has added
35 receptions for 229 yards and a touchdown.
Spiller made his fifth straight start on Saturday and has 73 carries for
386 yards since he moved to first team.
Saturday he had 16 carries for 111 yards and a touchdown, and added two
receptions for 27 yards, giving him 138 yards from scrimmage. The
previous week in a loss to the Miami Dolphins, Spiller had 12-91 rushing
and a career high nine receptions for a career high 76 reception yards.
That gave him a career high 167 yards from scrimmage in that contest.
Spiller now has 305 yards from scrimmage and four touchdowns over the
last two games.
Another former Tiger running back had a landmark accomplishment on
Saturday. Jamie Harper scored a touchdown to help the Tennessee Titans
to a 23-17 victory over Jacksonville.
Spiller and the Bills have one more game remaining, at New England, on
Sunday, January 1 at 1 PM.
