Jackson helps undefeated Bills stay balanced

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Thanks to Fred Jackson's shoulder-lowered, powerful running style, and Ryan Fitzpatrick's quick-thinking passing game, the Buffalo Bills' balanced attack is keeping opponents off-balance.

As much as Fitzpatrick has done to seal Buffalo's two stunning comebacks, they've all been sparked by coach Chan Gailey's willingness to stick with the run, and Jackson has delivered.

Jackson ignited a second-half rally against the Oakland Raiders that erased a 21-point deficit with a nifty 43-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter in Week 2, and his 1-yard scoring plunge in the fourth quarter against New England tied the game at 24.
