Like Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott, we’re going to be short and sweet.

“Yes.”

That was McDermott’s answer on Wednesday when he answered a question many have wondered.

In the Bills’ past two games, their best running back has been Matt Breida. For much of the early parts of this season, Breida has been inactive/

However, since being added in the fold the past two weeks, he has thrived.

The coach was asked this question on WGR-550 Radio in Buffalo. Bills Wire’s Bradley Gelber had the transcript:

In his past two games, Breida has rushed the ball only eight times but has 79 total yards on the ground with a touchdown. Breida has also contributed four catches, 38 yards and a score as a receiver.

Buffalo has rarely gotten that type of production from anyone in their backfield for much of this season, including Devin Singletary and Zack Moss.

While those touches are limited in total, Breida said earlier this week that he is still feeling that he’s been in a good flow when he does get them.

“I was able to break off a big chunk in the first play,” Breida said via the Buffalo News about his 28-yard rush against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 11. “I was able to get out there. And then came back to me twice. I think it was just one of the things where like, when you get a rhythm going – [Buffalo offensive coordinator] (Brian) Daboll knows that, too. When you’ve got a rhythm, whether pass or run, you just want to keep that going.”

Now it just remains to be seen if Breida’s workload and possibly rhythm does increase against the Saints on Thanksgiving… as it did against the Colts when he outsnapped Moss.
