Spiller on Bills' win: 'This is not a one-man show'


Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller rushed for two first-quarter touchdowns and amassed 123 yards on just 15 carries Sunday to lead the Bills to a 35-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Spiller and the Bills badly needed the win after getting routed by the New York Jets last weekend.

"We have great character on this team," Spiller said after the game, according to the team's media site. "This not a one-man show. It is going to take all 53 guys. Everybody did that today. I was very pleasing to get the home-opener win."

Well, it sort of was a one-man show, as Spiller also led the team in receptions with three. He gained 47 yards through the air.

Spiller has stepped up in a major way, as he leads the league in rushing with 292 yards through two weeks. The third-year tailback already has four rushes of 20 or more yards.

"C.J. has shown and something he has done a good job of over the last eight, nine games is his vision has been very good in terms of making cuts," Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said. "Seeing a hole, just trusting himself and going.

"He has learned a lot of things, I think, from sitting back and watching Fred (Jackson) and the way he runs. When C.J. gets in the open field he is hard to bring down."
