Josh Allen has great confidence in all the players around him

One thing that is certainly noticeable, this year (as well as last year) is that Josh Allen trusts all the players around him. When teams have a wide receiver like Stefon Diggs, it is easy for quarterbacks to lean on them and sometimes force the ball their way.

That isn’t the case with the Bills or Josh Allen as he is more than willing to find the open player, regardless of who it is. Last season, Buffalo had 13 players catch touchdowns, which tied an NFL record for the number of players to catch touchdowns in a season. They followed it up this year with 10 players catching touchdowns.

General manager Brandon Beane and the front office deserve a great deal of credit for putting the talent around Josh Allen that they have. However, Allen also deserves credit for moving the ball around and making the right throw to whoever the open player is on that play.
