Josh Allen

This may be a bit far-fetched, as Josh Allen is coming off a good game against the Chargers. Yet early in that game, Allen seemed a bit off, and of course, there are always times when a quarterback may be off their game, especially at the start, but there were a couple of big missed throws from Allen in that game that could've resulted in big gains or maybe even a touchdown. 

Allen was able to bounce back in the second quarter, but there were still a couple of little things he could've done to make that game more out of reach from the Chargers, one thing being his interception. Allen threw across his body on the run to try and hit Diggs deep, but ended up underthrowing him, resulting in the defender getting an easy interception. Allen would mention in the press conference that the interception was a "bonehead" decision and that he "should've set up before that throw" (rather than throwing on the run across his body).

Allen was able to redeem himself in that game, and fans shouldn't be too concerned with Allen's play going into this week. Allen will look for a taste of revenge against the Patriots, and try to lead the Bills to a chance at not just winning the division, but a chance at the two seed in the conference (if everything else plays in the Bills' favor).
