Though Marquise Goodwin is ahead of Brown on the depth chart, Goodwin is rarely healthy giving Brown kick return opportunities.

Week 16: at Oakland Raiders

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. The old war horse Fred Jackson has worked his way back to health, and is now the featured back for the Bills, with 20/71/0 rushing and 3/27/0 receiving during the upset of Green Bay last weekend. This, compared to 6/26/0 rushing and 1/5/0 receiving for Anthony Dixon, and 4/20/0 rushing with 1/40/0 receiving to Bryce Brown's credit, illustrates the lions' share of the work at running back is flowing to Jackson here in December. The Raiders' rush D has averaged 125.4 rushing yards allowed per game (25th in the NFL) and one TD allowed per game (14 given up over 14 contests this year). K.C. managed 27/93/1 rushing vs. Oakland last week; San Francisco had 18/97/0 rushing in the Black Hole two weeks ago. Of late, the Raiders' defensive front is playing with some vigor. Jackson is playing well in his featured role, but he's got an improving defensive front to deal with on Sunday - this looks like a neutral matchup for both sides (neither has a clear edge over the other).

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs CLE (3 / 11 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Bryce Brown only received three carries on Sunday and like the rest of the rushing attack, struggled to find much space against a very game Brown defense. Brown's long went for four yards, as he twice hit that mark and for the first time all season was not targeted in the passing game.

2014 Week 14 vs DEN (3 / 11 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)

A healthy Fred Jackson has certainly limited Bryce Brown's opportunities, but that hasn't seemed to derail Brown's growing confidence with each passing week. Brown looked comfortable again on Sunday, opening with a smooth seven-yard carry where he was able to get outside after hurdling Bradley Roby on the edge. However, this wasn't a forced bounce like we've seen in the past, but one where Brown used his vision and feel to find the opening before finishing the run off with his athleticism. Brown was also targeted three times in the passing game, catching two with a long of nine yards coming on a screen. Like Jackson, there seems to be much more to amass for Brown via the screen game but the blocking has got to catch up.

2014 Week 15 vs GB (4 / 20 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 40 / 0 rec)

Bryce Brown continued to be the Bills most explosive back on Sunday, averaging a team best five yards per carry and had team high 40-yard reception in the 3rd quarter. Lined up out wide, Brown was left uncovered by the Packers as he worked vertically down the sideline. After making the catch, Brown cut back inside and wowed the spectators as he leapt Tramon Williams as the corner went low. Nearly a clean hurdle, Brown's foot was just barely clipped and he was unable to maintain his balance as he came down. Had Brown been able to keep his feet there likely was considerably more yardage to be had with the end zone only 19 yards away. Brown's longest rush went for 12 yards and was a creation all his own. A blitzing Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix was on Brown just as received the handoff, but the slippery back was able to avoid the corner with a slick spin move before getting around the edge for the healthy gain.
