3 Buffalo Bills players could reach 500 yards rushing on the season

A Bills running back needs seven yards for the team to do something for the first time in 53 years.

If Karlos Williams gains seven yards on Sunday, the Buffalo Bills will have three players reach 500 yards rushing on the season. This would be the first time the team has done so in 53 years. Sal Capaccio of WGR-550 in Buffalo tweeted the following yesterday:


Buffalo currently has two players with over 500 yards rushing.

Player Attempts Yards YPC
LeSean McCoy 203 895 4.4
Tyrod Taylor 94 517 5.5

Williams, currently averaging 5.7 yards per carry, seems like a safe bet to reach this low amount of yardage against the NY Jets. The trio of McCoy, Taylor and Williams would be the first since Cookie Gilchrist, Wayne Crow, and Wray Carlton to each reach at least 500 yards.


Buffalo enters Week 17 averaging 154.6 yards per game, first in the NFL, and the last time the two teams faced off the Bills rushed for 148 yards on 33 carries. The run game has been one of the bright spots for the Bills this season so it's not a surprise that the franchise can achieve something for the first time in over 50 years.
