Josh Allen needs to protect the football

Over the past four games, the Buffalo Bills, and in particular Josh Allen, have struggled to protect the football. As Howard Simon with WGR550 tweeted, the Bills have had 11 turnovers over that stretch with the team’s starting quarterback responsible for nine of them with eight interceptions and one fumble lost.

Meanwhile, the New England Patriots have done an excellent job of forcing turnovers and one of the reasons they have been able to win games the way they have. They not only have the most forced turnovers over the last four weeks but currently lead the NFL this season in interceptions with 19.

In a game that is expected to be close, the Bills can’t afford to turn the ball over and give the Patriots any kind of advantage.
