The Buffalo Bills have had a rough few weeks after losing three of their last four games. Sean McDermott felt like it was time for a change and replaced Ken Dorsey with Joe Brady as offensive coordinator.
The switch could create a spark for an offense that has been stagnant at times but it creates a challenge for Brady as he not only has to build a game plan on a short week but also build rapport with Josh Allen in terms of relaying the play calls to him. That is why I believe the Bills will come into the week with a simplified offensive game plan but might end up being more effective.
These are five bold predictions for the Buffalo Bills against the New York Jets in Week 11
Josh Allen has 10+ rushing attempts
There has been plenty of criticism for Josh Allen's performance this season and rightfully so with the amount of turnovers he has had. The Bills as a team had four against the Broncos with Allen accounting for three (although the first interception is not entirely on the quarterback with a good throw that went through Gabe Davis' hands).
One thing that Allen hasn't done much of this season is run the ball as he has not had a game with 10 or more rushing attempts. This is a big part of his game and also made the offense as dynamic as it was in years past.
Last season, after the Vikings heart-breaking loss in Week 10, Allen had 10 rushing attempts in three of the next five games. One of those games was against the Jets and he had 47 rushing yards and a touchdown but more importantly, the Bills were 3-0.
Joe Brady won't be able to implement his entire offense on a short week but what he can do is let Josh Allen make more plays with his legs which will open up more of the offense.
