Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills (Syndication: Democrat and Chronicle) /


For the second straight game, the Buffalo Bills got the win even with Josh Allen not necessarily having his best game. He once again was inaccurate completing only 24 of 45 pass attempts for 239 yards and two passing touchdowns. He also added 63 rushing yards on only five attempts.

It wasn’t all bad and that first touchdown is a great example of what Allen can do. He was able to throw a perfect ball to Stefon Diggs in a place only he could make the catch and did it all with a defender dragging him down. While it was a great play, this week the bad outweighs the good slightly.

Grade: C

Running Backs

For the second straight week, Devin Singeltary found the end zone twice. This week it was with one rushing touchdown and one receiving touchdown, both of which came in the fourth quarter and helped secure the win.

He finished the game with over 100 yards from scrimmage with 88 rushing yards and 24 receiving yards on Sunday against the New York Jets. The coaching staff has committed to Singletary as their featured running back since Week 14 and he has responded with good games ever since.
