Description: Tampa Bay running back Bobby Rainey pounded his way to 127 rushing yards in Sunday's win over Buffalo.

Description: Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey didn't look like a third-stringer Sunday against Atlanta.
Insight: Rainey, who was waived by the Cleveland Browns earlier this season, took 30 handoffs for 163 yards and two touchdowns and also caught a touchdown. It's clear that Bucs coach Greg Schiano prefers to use one running back rather than a committee, as he heavily featured Doug Martin and Mike James before they suffered season-ending injuries. Now it's Rainey's turn.
