Josh Allen

The Buffalo Bills shocked the football world with Sunday's dominant 27-6 victory over the heavily-favored Minnesota Vikings. WBFO Bills analyst Matt Sabuda came away impressed by the performance of rookie quarterback Josh Allen.

Josh Allen played with the poise of a well-seasoned quarterback for the Buffalo Bills by accounting for three touchdowns in his first road start in the NFL. Allen made Minnesota's Kirk Cousins look like the raw rookie in a stunning 27-6 upset of the Vikings on Sunday afternoon.

Melvin Gordon matched a career high by scoring three touchdowns, and the Los Angeles Chargers defeated Buffalo 31-20 in manhandling the anemic Bills during rookie quarterback Josh Allen's debut as a starter.

The decision to start rookie Josh Allen has sparked hope and concern among Buffalo Bills fans. As analyst Matt Sabuda points out, Allen possesses "jaw-dropping athleticism," but his "uneven performance" in relief of Nathan Peterman last week has worked to temper expectations. If the Bills are to contend with the Chargers in Sunday's home opener, Sabuda says the Bills game plan will need to rely upon running back LeSean McCoy.

The Buffalo Bills selection of Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen has sparked widespread reaction--a loud portion of which has been negative. Analyst Matt Sabuda offers a more measured response on a special edition of WBFO's Beyond the Playbook.  While factoring in the many negatives found on Allen's resume', Sabuda sees the selection as "a high risk for a team that needs a high reward."
