1.) Josh Allen

When you look at Josh Allen’s numbers from Week 5, they looked pretty decent (67% completion rate for 359 yards, 2 touchdowns with one interception). That is quite a day for Allen, despite the long interception in which it looked like the ball was taken out of Stefon Diggs’ hands.

With that being said, Allen also looked sloppy early on and even missed out on great opportunities to run and pick up a first on a third down situation. It seemed like he was still adjusting to the time out in London and it affected the offense greatly until the 4th quarter. 

Allen will be playing against his old offensive coordinator in Brian Daboll, who knows him as well as what he brings to the table. Even though Allen is a different player, Daboll still knows what can rattle Allen and make him feel the pressure. At the same time, Allen faces a defense that looks vulnerable and weak, in which he should be able to capitalize and rebound from the Week 5 loss.
