2014 Week 10 vs MIA (10 / 44 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 37 / 0 rec)
Bell had one of his better games of the season on a per-touch basis against the Dolphins. He churned out yards post-contact on multiple carries, which accounted for a majority of his production. Bell ran over a defender on a run of more than 15 yards and again on a reception of more than 25 yards. If Miami did not stop Bell at the line of scrimmage, it took multiple defenders and a few yards to slow him down at the second and third levels of the defense. There were no goal line opportunities to be had and Theo Riddick saw significant snaps when Reggie Bush was limited later in the game.
2014 Week 11 vs ARI (14 / 85 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
With Reggie Bush out of the lineup, Bell saw nearly all the early down work against Arizona. It was hit-or-miss for Bell as an inside runner. While the final stat line looks efficient, Bell was stuffed at or behind the line of scrimmage regularly by the Cardinals stout defensive front seven. A majority of Bell's yardage came on four sizeable gains. When Bell had a hole at the line, he took advantage. In the second half, Bell took a huge hit, fumbled, but Detroit recovered on the play. Later, on Bell's highlight play of the game, he hurdled a defender on a third down screen pass en route to a gain of more than 15 yards and moving Detroit out from their own goal line. Bell did not see an goal line opportunities this week and logged an ugly dropped outlet pass in the receiving game.
2014 Week 12 vs NE (19 / 48 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / -2 / 0 rec)
With Reggie Bush out, Bell got the start against New England. Well-blocked holes were few and far between, but Bell held his own with yards after contact. He showed off a stiff arm early in the game, but he was stuffed at the line of scrimmage more times than not. As Detroit fell out of the game, Bell's role dwindled in favor of Theo Riddick in the pass game. In the second half, Bell was regularly held to minimal gains. He did, however, converted a third-and-one situation. Without much passing game work or goal line opportunities, Bell's impact was sparse as Detroit struggled to finish drives all game.
