Though Fred Jackson's injury has derailed the Bills' postseason chances, it allows the team to get a lengthy look at what C.J. Spiller can do.
"He's really shown us something," quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said. "We're expecting a lot of big things out of him. And hopefully, we've just seen the tip of the iceberg in terms of his production and his explosiveness."
It helps that Spiller finally has a set role. A rash of injuries had Spiller splitting time at receiver, where the Bills lacked a bona fide deep threat. He struggled making the adjustment and has 21 catches for 116 yards.
Spiller's been far more comfortable lining up in the backfield.
"We're trying to find ways to improve our team. We're trying to find ways to propel us into next season," receiver David Nelson said. "Having C.J. and Fred back there, that one-two punch is going to add some things to our offense."
