4 impressive stats from Buffalo Bills Week 2 win over Raiders
Josh Allen make history
The Buffalo Bills quarterback wanted to put Monday night's game against the New York Jets behind him and he did just that on Sunday. Allen would finish the game with almost 275 passing yards and three passing touchdowns.
In this game, Josh Allen looked to be in control from almost the start. He was methodical and didn't take unnecessary risks, which was the biggest criticism from Week 1.
Josh Allen would finish the game by completing over 80% of his passes and was the fifth time in his career that he had a completion percentage over 80% and threw three touchdowns. According to ESPN, that is the most of any quarterback before they turn 30 years old.
It was an important game for Josh Allen and the hope is he continues to play like this moving forward.
