For the first 57 minutes of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, it looked as though this column would be all about everything that went wrong for the Buffalo Bills offense on Sunday.

The Bills flipped the script in the game’s final three minutes and seven seconds, as quarterback Kyle Orton led a 15-play, 80-yard touchdown drive, which ended with just one second remaining in the game, to give Buffalo a 17-16 victory in a game that was otherwise ugly for both teams.

Things had not been going very well for the Buffalo Bills rushing offense in recent weeks, but it looks as though it could get much, much worse after the team’s top two running backs, Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller, each suffered injuries that knocked them out of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings during the first half.

Jackson left the contest with a groin injury, while Spiller suffered a shoulder injury. Both players were carted off the field and were quickly ruled out.

According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, the initial diagnosis for Spiller is a broken collarbone, while Jackson will need an MRI on his groin.
