Josh Allen has many other places to go with football. The Bills’ series of pass interceptors are benefiting from the attention Diggs commands from opposing defenses, and Sunday should be no different. While one of the league’s best cornerbacks is focused on the new wide receiver No. 1 of Buffalo, John Brown and Cole Beasley will have a chance to explode.
The defense of the Rams allowed an average of 18 points per game, one of the most miserly totals in the league in two games. But Allen has the ability to extend plays with his legs like few quarterbacks in the league, and if he continues his winning streak to start the season, the Bills should keep their record spotless. Invoices, 27-24.
If any team could hold back a Bills team that is in an offensive snatch, one would think the Rams are ready to snatch a mature opponent. The Bills have shown that they like to pass and will have to love passing play and running play alike, especially against the Rams pass defense which is led by defensive striker Aaron Donald and allowed an average of 243 yards. per game. The Rams’ top defense is a bit more stingy (128.5 yards per game).
Josh Allen’s passing statistics in the first two weeks of the season were showy. Showy, almost. But they’re also up against teams that aren’t the likes of, say, the Chiefs or the Patriots. Allen and the Bills must continue to aim for greater balance in the attack, which in the first two games recorded only 105 yards of running.
