Week 16: vs Buffalo Bills

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Oakland's rushing attack was enlivened by the return of Latavius Murray last week - he posted 12/59/0 rushing and 2/17/0 receiving during the game, while Darren McFadden was allotted 2/13/0 rushing, shared with Maurice Jones-Drew's 2/6/0 rushing. This is Murray's attack as long as he stays healthy enough to play over the final two games of the season. The Bills' rush D is ranked ninth in the NFL averaging 103.4 rushing yards allowed per game, with 10 rushing scores given up over 14 games played. Green Bay amassed 25/158/1 rushing last week vs. Buffalo, while Denver posted 29/133/3 rushing two games ago. Murray is a rising star but he's got to learn about bad NFL matchups. This is one of those - advantage, Buffalo.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs STL (11 / 27 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)

McFadden had 3 carries late in the first quarter for 15 yards, but outside of that he had little to no chance. His best run of the day was a 7 yard run to end that string where he trucked the safety at the end of the run. On the very next play he was stuffed for no gain on 3rd and 1. McFadden also had a 13 yard reception that included a nice stiff arm of a defender in the flats. Due to the game script he had only 5 carries in the second half.

2014 Week 14 vs SF (4 / 5 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

McFadden started the game but saw his touches severely limited due to the success of Murray and Reece. He had noticeably less burst than Murray and lost touches in the passing game to Reece.

2014 Week 15 vs KC (2 / 13 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

McFadden had only two carries in the game, but looked good on both. He's clearly taken a back seat to Murray and lacks his burst and leg drive.
