Clear lead back Thursday
Singletary rushed 15 times for 44 yards and brought in his only target for four yards in the Bills' 31-6 win over the Saints on Thursday night.
With Zach Moss a healthy scratch, Singletary's only competition for carries among his fellow running backs came from Matt Breida. Singletary ultimately outpaced his teammate by six rushing touches during a contest in which game script turned favorably toward the run. The 15 carries were a season high for Singletary, who opened the season with double-digit rush attempts in his first four games before not hitting that mark again until Thursday. Whether the same backfield hierarchy applies in a Week 13 divisional battle against the Patriots on Monday night, Dec. 6 remains to seen.
