The Buffalo Bills have a chance to make a huge statement this weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles sit atop the NFL with a 9 - 1 record and are considered the class of the NFC and maybe the NFL. They just pulled out a win against the Kansas City Chiefs, coming back down 17 - 7 to win it 21 - 17.

The Bills were a shell of their former self for a month and a half, with inexplicable losses to the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos and nearly dropping one to the New York Giants. Buffalo seemingly finally got back on track last week against the New York Jets, putting 32 points on the board against one of the better defenses in the game.

Are the Bills truly back though? One game is hard to fully restore the faith after what we saw for six weeks but so far, the change from former offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey to interim coordinator Joe Brady seemed to pay off. Brady simplified the offense and Allen was patient, taking what the defense gave him and Brady got the running backs involved too, which resulted in two receiving touchdowns, one by Ty Johnson and another by James Cook.

A win this weekend against the Eagles and suddenly the Bills' playoff hopes look far more promising. I'm hoping for more of the same from Brady and the Bills offense against the Philadelphia Eagles. If so, the Eagles can be scored on through the passing game, which we'll touch on a bit more here shortly but here are my five ways that Josh Allen can have a big game against the Eagles in Week 12.
