It's not easy to score touchdowns in the NFL, but Buffalo Bills rookie RB Karlos Williams has made it look pretty easy in his first six games. The former Florida State Seminoles running back has been one of the biggest draft steals this season and on Monday Night Football Williams can set an NFL rookie record.
In his first six games, Williams has found the end zone seven times. He's scored five times on the ground and has two touchdown receptions over the six games, and at least one score in each game. This currently has Williams tied with former Patriots running back Robert Edwards for most . Against Edwards' former team, Williams can break the record and have it all to himself. The explosive back has the ability to score on the ground or through the air, so he has a legitimate chance to break the record on Monday night.
In addition to scoring touchdowns, Williams has also made transitioning to the NFL look easy. Currently, the back has 360 rushing yards on 58 carries, a 6.2 YPC average. His 6.2 yards per carry average is first in the NFL among backs with at least 50 carries. Based upon his play, it's shocking that Williams fell all the way to the fifth round of the 2015 draft. Williams has outplayed quite a few of the backs selected ahead of him and has been the perfect complement to LeSean McCoy. For now, Williams is making the most of his limited snaps but in time there's no doubt that Williams could be Buffalo's workhorse back.
