Josh Allen

The Buffalo Bills made Josh Allen one of the highest-paid players in the NFL last offseason. He would go on to have another good season this year but these are the games where he earns that contract.

The last time Josh Allen played the Patriots, he had a career game completing 64% of his passes for 314 passing yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions. The fact that he had the game he did with the stakes as high as they were, Buffalo had to win if they wanted to win the AFC East, makes this performance even more impressive

Unfortunately, in the final two regular-season games after that one, the Bills’ quarterback has struggled with only 359 passing yards, two passing touchdowns, and three interceptions. It hasn’t been all bad as he has been able to make plays with his legs and has 144 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns in those games.

However, the Bills are unlikely to come away with a win if Josh Allen plays the way he has the past two weeks.
