C.J. Anderson runs wild in Broncos win
Over the past four weeks, an argument can be made that C.J. Anderson has been the best running back in the NFL.
It showed again Sunday night as Anderson ran for 168 yards on 32 carries during Denver's 29-16 win over the Chiefs. Anderson plodded his way through the tackle and outside, taking a lot of pressure off quarterback Peyton Manning, who seemed to have a hard time throwing through the swirling winds present at Arrowhead Stadium.
Anderson also caught two passes for 17 yards and a touchdown.
In the past four weeks, Anderson has totaled 445 rushing yards and 649 from scrimmage. This, from a player that entered the season as Denver's third-string running back behind Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman.
The Denver running game in general has picked up over the second half of the season. Hillman was having a lot of success before an injury opened the door for Anderson. And the only reason Hillman got an opportunity was because Ball sustained an injury as well.
Now, you have to wonder what will happen when both Hillman and Ball are able to return. Out of the three, Anderson has been the most impressive. Though it will be a tough decision, it's a good problem for John Fox and Adam Gase to have in Denver.
