If Bills can't run, they probably can't win

(TSX / STATS) -- ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- It really wasn't a secret, but just for clarification, the Carolina Panthers provided the blueprint for the rest of the league on how to stifle the Buffalo Bills' offense.

You load up the box and concentrate solely on stopping running back LeSean McCoy, and if you do it well, the Bills are dead.

Buffalo's passing game is simply pathetic, and in the 9-3 loss to the Panthers, the Bills were hopelessly in trouble when the Panthers held McCoy to nine yards on 12 carries.
