This was one stat that Josh Allen specifically improved as the season went on with as he had nine turnovers through the first five games, with seven interceptions and two fumbles lost. However, in the final 11 games, Allen only had four turnovers with two interceptions and two fumbles lost.
However, this is not only Josh Allen but falls on the entire offense to do a better job of protecting the ball. Last season, the Buffalo Bills had 19 turnovers with 12 interceptions and seven fumbles lost but they also finished the year with 23 fumbles. It is hard to expect that the Bills will continue to see low percentage of lost fumbles and need to improve not putting the ball on the ground.
The reason that fewer turnovers is going to help the defense is it doesn’t shortened drives by the offense but it also doesn’t put the defense in a bad spot. If the turnover happens on the wrong side of the field, it puts pressure on the defense to keep the opposition out of scoring range.
If the offense can improve these three stats this upcoming season then it is going to be a big boost to the Buffalo Bills defense.
