The Buffalo Bills are coming off an ugly loss against the New York Jets. This was a win that the Bills needed, especially with the gauntlet of teams that they would have to face in the future.
Not only that, but the game was winnable, but lots of costly mistakes were made, including Josh Allen's four turnovers. The Bills will now be back in Buffalo for their home opener against the 1-0 Las Vegas Raiders, where the Bills would look to rebound and get back on the right track.
However, the Bills need to be aware of what they're going up against and need to make a game plan and do certain things right if they want to rebound.
Josh Allen needs to play situational football
Every NFL fan knows about Josh Allen's disastrous performance Monday night. Allen made very questionable decisions that resulted in three interceptions, and fumbled the ball on a snap, resulting in four total turnovers.
Allen does tend to turn over the ball quite a bit, but all of that is foreshadowed by how many points he puts on the board, Allen couldn't even do that Monday night. The Buffalo Bills quarterback tends to go for the home run ball a lot of the time, and it's worked out many times, but sometimes those home run balls result in bad turnovers.
Allen has that inconsistency, and as a six-year veteran, he needs to know better when to take those shots. He needs to take what the defense gives him and set up those home run balls when the opportunity is there.
When those opportunities are there, Allen usually delivers and starts to heat up, and when he heats up, he's very hard to stop. Due to the Raiders' much less talented defense compared to the Jets, Allen is expected to rebound this Sunday.
