It's usually December that brings out the best in running backs.
It's cold in most places for one thing, so teams tend to run a bit more.
Plus, the stakes are higher.
The rivalries are bigger (like this week for example).
The expectations are huge: everyone wants their team to win.
And further more, what's the old adage? Run the ball and stop the run?
This is going to be a good month for running backs.
