1.) The expectations of Josh Allen

When you have a quarterback that is as talented as anyone in the league, a team is expected to reach a certain level of his game and help bring home a win and eventually a championship. Bills’ quarterback Josh Allen has established himself as one of the premiere players in the NFL.

He has only missed the playoffs once in his rookie season and has led the Bills to three consecutive division championships. From the eye test, Allen is not having his flashy type of season that he has had in the last three seasons. He is near the top in terms of total turnovers, he has not had a game where he took over since Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles. 

He is mentioned in the same category as guys like Patrick Mahomes, Joe Burrow, Lamar Jackson, and Jalen Hurts. Three out of those four quarterbacks will be in the postseason. Allen is looking to get in the dance himself and potentially face off against Jackson or Mahomes in the postseason.

Allen has not looked like himself the last month of football, but there is optimism against Miami as he seems to always play his best football against the Dolphins, having just lost twice to them in his career
