The hope was that the Buffalo Bills offense could turn it around against the New England Patriots. For the past two weeks, the offense has struggled to begin the game before finding a rhythm in the fourth quarter.

Unfortunately, it didn't play out that way as the very first play of the game for the offense Josh Allen would throw an interception. The Patriots would capitalize with a touchdown and have a 10-0 lead thanks to a field goal on their opening drive.

There seems to be more questions than answers at this point for the offense and these are the grades for the Buffalo Bills offense in Week 7.

Week 7 grades for the Buffalo Bills offense against the New England Patriots


The stats are better this week than last week for Josh Allen as he threw for 265 yards with three total touchdowns and the one interception at the beginning of the game. However, it doesn't tell the whole story and Allen did not look like that top quarterback that he is.

This week wasn't so much the decision making but the accuracy as he seemed to miss a number of throws that have been pretty easy in the past. He completed only 27 of 41 passes and left a number of completable passes on the field.

While Josh Allen won't say it's the shoulder injury that impacted his performance, it might have been a factor. The good news is that Josh Allen once again was able to turn it around in the fourth quarter but it is not enough to save his grade this week.
