Bills RB Bryce Brown played on just 14 snaps.
Four of Brown's seven carries came in the first half but gained only six yards. Coach Doug Marrone said Brown would have received more time if the Bills were in a spread look on offense.
Instead, the Bills were in more of a ground-and-pound mode, playing with the lead for the entire game. That led to Dixon, the more bruising back, receiving more carries. He wasn't any more effective than Brown and finished with 22 carries for just 44 yards, his longest run was five yards. The Bills have a bye Week 9.
