Josh Allen completes passes to seven different Buffalo Bills

Another way offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey is going to try and limit the impact of the Jets pass rush is to get the ball out of Josh Allen's hands quickly. This should result in quick passes but also moving the ball around to utilize the deep supporting cast Allen has around him.

The Jets are going to focus on slowing down Stefon Diggs, and have an excellent cornerback in Sauce Gardner to do that, so while Diggs will get targets, Josh Allen should look to the other players to make plays. That group includes Gabe Davis, Deonte Harty, Khalil Shakir, Dawson Knox, Dalton Kincaid and James Cook.

I expect all of these players to get targets in this game to try and force the defense to guess where the ball is going. If Josh Allen can effectively spread the ball around early, it could help open up the field for Stefon Diggs later in the game.
