Maybe that’s why the Falcons suddenly have some mojo against the Bills.

The Falcons have come back to tie things with the Bills at 17 in Toronto, getting some surprising pop from their running game.

Steven Jackson is back from looking like Michael Turner, bursting his way to a 27-yard touchdown run. But Antone Smith was even more explosive, with a 38-yard run that took less time.

A Matt Bryant field goal just before halftime evened things up, after the Bills looked so solid early on.

C.J. Spiller already has 105 rushing yards, though 77 came on one run in the first possession.
