Josh Allen

There is no question that all eyes will be on Josh Allen entering this game. He will be trying to put behind him his four turnover performance against the New York Jets on Monday night.

The Bills franchise quarterback had his play scrutinized over the past few days and the best way to silence the critics is with a good game against the Raiders. This doesn't mean he needs to throw for 350 yards and three touchdowns.

What it means is he has to play smart, not force throws when they aren't needed and avoid taking unnecessary hits. The good news is that Josh Allen has a pretty good track record of this as he is 5-0 since 2019 in games following a game with three or more turnovers. More importantly, he has only two inteceptions in those five games.

I would expect a more conservative game plan from Ken Dorsey and one that allows Josh Allen to get into a rhythm early with high percentage throws and getting rid of the ball quickly.
