Since the Oakland Raiders game, Anderson has been the best and most consistent Broncos player.

He’s removed all doubt that he’s Denver’s running back going forward. In two consecutive games, Anderson has eclipsed 160 yards rushing. Against the Miami Dolphins, he had 167. Most recently against the Kansas City Chiefs, he had 168.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, among the 29 NFL players with at least 10,000 rushing yards, 16 never recorded back-to-back games with 160 or more. Those who did not include three players in the league’s all-time top 10 in rushing: Curtis Martin (4), Jerome Bettis (6), and Tony Dorsett (8).

Anderson is the first running back in the NFL to rush for 160 yards in consecutive games since Bryce Brown did so with the Philadelphia Eagles two seasons ago.

Anderson is the first Denver running back to pull the feat since Ruben Droughns in 2004. Droughns rushed for 193 and 176 yards in two straight weeks.

The task doesn’t get any easier going against the Bills defense and that front seven. Buffalo is seventh against the run, giving up 96.3 yards per game and 3.9 per carry.

The best way for Denver’s offense to counter the Bills’ pass rush is by running the football.

Will Anderson continue down his recent path?
