Buffalo Bills: 2019 Player grades for Josh Allen and the offense
For the first time since the days of Drew Bledsoe, the Buffalo Bills entered the season with their clear starter at the position. This would be the second season for former Top 10 pick Josh Allen and the hope was that he would be able to develop his game and take that next step in his career.
While there is still room for improvement, there is no question that Allen made tremendous strides from his rookie season. He was the first quarterback for the Buffalo Bills to start all sixteen games since Ryan Fitzpatrick did it in 2012. He finished the year with 3,089 passing yards, 510 rushing yards with 29 total touchdowns.
In the early part of the season, turnovers was a concern and after throwing seven interceptions in the first five games, he only threw two over the final nine games. It is going to be important in Year 3 that he continues to protect the ball.
Josh Allen should a great deal of promise in Year 2 and played in his first postseason game. The key for his career will be to build off these positives in Year 3 while improving on the negatives.
