Bills offense still searching for a rhythm

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) – Offensively, the Bills have struggled to hit on all cylinders for much of the season. That’s been a big point of emphasis going into Sunday’s matchup against the Vikings.

Slow starts have routinely plagued the offense, something that could play a role this week against a Vikings team that has struggled to play from behind this season.

“We’ve come out too slow at times. It’s putting us in a hole, so we definitely have to come out, be faster, get that rhythm going earlier,” said running back Fred Jackson. “It allows us to do a lot more as an offensive unite, and put up more points.”

A couple big issues all of a sudden are an inconsistent run game, and an inability to generate much yardage on first and second downs – two problems that go hand in hand.

“I think it’ll help us sustain drives if we’re better on first and second down and we’re eating up a good chunk of yards so we’re not in third and long situations,” said wide receiver Chris Hogan.

“We have been inconsistent in all areas of the game. If we get longer drives, sustaining drives I think it will open up the running game so it’s on us as running backs, we’ve got to hit the holes. If there is one yard there, we have to get three,” said Jackson.
