3.) Get Josh Allen involved in the run game

Remember when the Bills’ rushing attack was Josh Allen at one point? There was reason to be upset about it because all it took was one big hit to Allen to knock him out of the game. We are at the point where it seems like the Bills are avoiding the run game as much as possible and making Allen drop back into shotgun formation on almost every play.

With the Bills’ offense searching for answers on what is wrong and what they need to improve, it might be time to make up those quarterback-designed runs and just hope that Allen is responsible rather than taking unnecessary hits.

On one drive against the Bengals, Allen took off with the ball and managed to build up tiny moments of hope in the second half. I’m not saying to make the run game all Allen, but he does serve as another weapon on the ground that can make plays aside from the services of Cook and Murray.
