A week ago, rookie running back Zack Moss fumbled in a key spot, gifting the 49ers the shortest of fields and an easy touchdown. Sean McDermott and his coaching staff swiftly limited Moss’ snaps and said afterward the running back needed to learn a lesson. Credit to the Bills for not extending that lesson into this game against the Steelers. If Moss is going to show growth, he needs to know the team has confidence in him. The Bills showed that on the final drive of the game when Moss carried the ball six times for 26 yards and two first downs on Buffalo’s seven-minute, 11-second drive to seal the win.

The story added Moss got a clear vote of confidence on that last drive. The Bills ran 11 plays before Allen’s two kneel-downs, and Moss touched the ball on six of them. Moss took 59 percent of the Bills’ offensive snaps to Singletary’s 40 percent. He also had 13 carries to Singletary’s seven. And 26 of Moss’ 43 rushing yards came on the final drive. The Bills trusted Moss to be their closer, and the rookie delivered, the story added.
