C.J. Anderson will rush for 1,400 yards this season and 10+ touchdowns
Unfortunately, this one did not come to become true. He was halfway there for both stats. He finished the year with 720 yards rushing and five touchdowns. In this instance, halfway does not count here. I failed to correctly guess his yard total for the 2015 season.
However, when you look at the grand scheme of things, the running game got off to a bad start. It never picked up until the Cleveland Browns game in Week 6. Even from there it was spotty.
The biggest amount of success the running game had during the regular season was the six games that Brock Osweiler was the starting quarterback. That is no knock on Manning at all. Osweiler just helped fit the system better.
Even though the running game was a bit off tempo from time to time, it did not mean that they could not surprise you every now and again. Quite a few times in the regular season, Anderson and Ronnie Hillman broke some big runs.
The postseason was when Anderson was at his best. He rushed for 234 yards and two touchdowns during the three game postseason. The old saying goes, if you can run the ball in January and February, then you have a good shot at a championship.
