Josh Allen leads the NFL in completion percentage
The Buffalo Bills quarterback bounced back in a big way in Week 2 against the Las Vegas Raiders after a lackluster performance. After his four turnover game in Week 1, the focus on Josh Allen was how he would do protecting the football.
He did a great job as he didn't have any turnovers but with the focus on turnovers, the Bills quarterback isn't getting enough credit for another stat. Josh Allen currently is leading the NFL in completion percentage through two games with an impressive 76.9%.
Certainly, the game against the Raiders helped as he completed almost 84% of his passes but even against the Jets he had a completion percentage of 70.7%. These are impressive numbers for Allen considering coming into the NFL the biggest concern was his accuracy.
This was something that was often mentioned as being unfixable but Josh Allen has steadily improved in this category. In his first two seasons in the NFL, Allen had a completion percentage under 60% but over the past four seasons has been above 63%, including a career high of 69.2% in 2020.
if Allen continues to move the ball around like he did against the Raiders, he should finish near the top of the league in this stat and tough to stop.
