Greg Roman and the Buffalo Bills hope to demoralize defenses with the run in 2016.

Greg Roman wants to demoralize opposing defenses in 2016.

The Buffalo Bills offense had a great season in 2015 under offensive coordinator Greg Roman. In Roman's first season in Buffalo, the Bills finished 12th in points, 13th in total yards, 28th in passing yards, and first in rushing yards.

Buffalo utilized a ground and pound run-first offense in 2015 with plenty of success. In an appearance on the John Murphy Show, Roman said that he expects to see a dominant rushing attack in 2016 that demoralizes opposing defenses.

"I think Rex knows and I know what it means when you can have a dominant rushing attack," Roman stated. "You can demoralize the defense and, quite frankly, that's what we're trying to do week in and week out. It's something that opens up a lot of opportunities for the rest of the offense. That's one of those things I love, making the running game and passing game intertwine."

After rushing for 2,432 yards in 2015, it's possible that the offense increases their rushing yards total this season. Buffalo's offensive line will return this season, so it may come down to Buffalo's health. Last year, Buffalo dealt with injuries to LeSean McCoyKarlos Williams, and quarterback Tyrod Taylor. If the trio can stay healthy over the course of 16 games, this group, in addition Mike Gillislee, could finish with an even higher total in 2016.
