During the offseason, the Buffalo Bills made several trades and signed a few free agents. The goal was to compliment a roster brimming with potential at several key positions.
The signing of running back Anthony "Boobie" Dixon to a three-year, $3.5 million contract on March 15, 2014 was seen as a depth move. The Bills already had Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller at running back. A trade with the Philadelphia Eagles brought over Bryce Brown, so Dixon was an afterthought amongst most Bills fans heading into the 2014 season.
Dixon made an emphatic statement during the Bills 38-3 drubbing of the New York Jets on Monday night. Dixon carried the ball 12 times for 54 yards and one touchdown. The touchdown came in the fourth quarter with the Bills up 31-7. On second-and-six at the Jets 30-yard line, Dixon rushed up the middle and outran the Jets defense to score another Bills touchdown. Dixon was ecstatic about his performance, but also appreciative of the Bills fans and their continued support.

"That was definitely for them," Dixon said. "It's been a struggle all week. I know they're back home struggling, and we're about to go back home and fight with them."
