ORCHARD PARK, NY - Strong performances from both Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller allowed the Bills to establish an early offensive rhythm in their 23-20 win over the Ravens.
The two combined for 164 yards and Jackson had a 16-yard run for a touchdown in the second quarter.
"We knew that if we could establish that running game, it could allow us some plays down field. We came out and we got it started. It was going to be tough sledding because that's a tremendous defense. It was a challenge we all took to heart," said Jackson.
Jackson's TD was the first rushing TD the Ravens have allowed all season.
"That was one of our goals. We knew that if we got a rushing touchdown it would open some things up. It worked for us today," said Jackson.
The two running backs however were not immune from the injury bug. Spiller left the game with an ankle injury and Jackson left the game with a knee injury. Both backs did return to the game, however.
"I'll see how I feel in the morning and do as much training as I can and get ready for Thursday even though it's a short week. It's going to be tough but I'm going to do everything on my end to be in a position to be ready to play," said Spiller.
