While the Buffalo Bills had a dominating performance in Week 2 over the Miami Dolphins, winning by a final score of 35-0, there is always room for improvement.
The Buffalo Bills as a team certainly looked better this past week than the first game of the season however there are a few players where trends have developed now over both games and hopefully can be addressed before Sunday’s game against Washington.
There is no question that the offense looked better against the Miami Dolphins with five offensive touchdowns. However, Josh Allen still struggled and struggled specifically with his accuracy.
For the second straight week, Allen was below 60% completion percentage which he only did twice in 16 regular season games all of last year. This was one of the biggest criticisms for the Bills’ quarterback during the draft process and his first two years in the league.
While it was unlikely that he would continue to see double-digit percentage increases as he did from Year 1 to Year 2 and then again in Year 2 to last year, the hope was that he could at least maintain a percentage above 65%.
The Buffalo Bills were able to get good production from their run game, and a dominating performance by the defense against the Dolphins that Allen’s struggles didn’t matter. However, this offense was built around their star quarterback and he will need to show more consistency.
