Yeah I think he broke 4 tackles in the entire highlight reel. Don't think the NE OL is quite as athletic as the Bills line, or perhaps they are but didn't have the personnel at RB to bother.Sort of my take too. Showed some great cuts and him reading his holes well, but for a highlight film would have expected at least a sample or two of him either making guys miss or dragging some guys along. That said, more of a burst than I remember from his games with the Pats last year.
Will be interesting to see if they can continue to run the tosses and sweeps that Gillislee excelled at.
The one play in particular where he runs into Eric Rowe's arms and falls down was underwhelming. Seems like CB/S didn't have much trouble taking him down in the open field. Do like the burst and decisiveness though.
