Beyond the Playbook: Allen can't outrun the Jets

Dec 10, 2018

Rookie quarterback Josh Allen continues to excite fans with athletic runs and his strong arm. With Sunday's performance against the Jets, Allen became just the fourth player in Buffalo Bills history to rush for 95 yards or more in three consecutive games, joining Fred Jackson, Thurman Thomas and O.J. Simpson on that list. Of course, the effort wasn't enough as the Bills lost Sunday to the New York Jets, 27-23.  Allen took a step back, says analyst Matt Sabuda, who believes the quarterback would be better served to use his running ability to establish a more effective passing game.
