The weather didn’t do Josh Allen any favors on Monday night against the New England Patriots. The wind forced the Buffalo Bills into a run-heavy offense and it wasn’t until the second half that offensive coordinator Brian Daboll started to call more pass plays.

It was a modest performance from Allen who threw for 145 passing yards, including a touchdown to Gabriel Davis. He also added 39 rushing yards on six carries, which was surprisingly low considering the weather conditions.

It would have made sense to see Josh Allen run on Monday night against the New England Patriots. However, he now has 82 rushing yards the past two weeks which is a significant increase over the 21 rushing yards he had in Week 10 and Week 11.

According to FantasyPros, Josh Allen ranks third among quarterbacks in fantasy points scored with 280.9 and an average of 23.4 per game. He is behind only Tom Brady, who the Bills face on Sunday, and Justin Herbert.

What to expect in Week 14 from Josh Allen against the Tampa Bay Bucs

This week the Buffalo Bills are on the road and traveling south to face the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay. This game has the potential to be a shootout which could be setting up Josh Allen to have a big game.

The Bucs currently are allowing the 13th most passing yards at 248.4 yards per game and have allowed the 10th most passing touchdowns at 21.

The concern for Josh Allen though is the Bucs have also done a good job of forcing turnovers and are tied for fifth in interceptions with 14. This has been something that the Bills’ quarterback has struggled with as he had at least one interception in four straight games from Week 9 to Week 12 and had seven in total during that stretch.

The good news is that Josh Allen did end that streak against the New England Patriots.
