Spiller on his current streak is averaging 77.5 rushing yards per game and 35.5 yards receiving.
The main difference is that Spiller is averaging ten less touches than Thomas had.
“I just know what type of player he can be,” said Thomas. “Obviously he can run the ball, but he can catch the ball also. So I’ve just been encouraging him to keep working hard and everything will work out for him.”
Head Coach Chan Gailey has said that he expects to get Spiller the ball more given his abilities.
The Jacksonville Jaguars rank amongst the bottom in the league in defense. It will be up to Spiller to see if he can extend his streak Sunday.
