Josh Allen leads Bills to dominating win over Patriots

Josh Allen after Bills defeat Patriots in playoffs 2022

You could see it on the first drive of the game. Josh Allen was ready to run the ball when needed, and he was being accurate with his throws despite the cold weather. That as it turned out was a terrible combination for the Patriots defense and the Bills went on to destroy New England 47-17 in a game that must have been pure nirvana for Bills fans.

Allen completed 21 of 25 passes for 308 yards and 5 touchdowns. He was the difference all night long, but this entire team came out to play. Bills players were called out by the press after a tough home loss to the Patriots earlier in the season when they were bullied in cold weather. They weren’t going to let that happen again.

Meanwhile, Mac Jones had a rough night even as he started the game with some nice throws. His first interception was a nice throw, but Micah Hyde made an amazing play on the ball for the INT.

The real problem, however, was the Patriots defense that gave up a touchdown to the Bills on their first seven drives of the game. Bill Belichick had to be sick after this performance, which of course had to make Bills fans that much happier.

The Bills were a 4.5 point favorite in this game, but it’s a game I didn’t want to touch as we didn’t know which version of Josh Allen would show up. Allen wasted no time showing he came to play, and this version of Josh Allen makes the Bills a serious Super Bowl contender. Allen’s problem has always been consistency. At times he can lose his accuracy. If he can be dependable throwing the ball and run when needed, the Bills will be tough to beat this postseason. Let’s see how he does.

Steelers stuff Josh Allen and the Bills

Josh Allen vs Steelers 2021

It’s Overreaction Monday, so we have to be careful of making too much of one game. But I’ve been skeptical about Josh Allen. Of course he’s a very good player, but is really one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL? If you just look at last season, the answer might be “yes.” But is one season enough to come to that conclusion?

After signing a massive contract, Allen got off to a rough start in week one against the Steelers defense. He struggled with accuracy as the Bills lost at home 23-16. Next week he and the Bills get another tough defense as they travel to Miami. Let’s see if Allen’s struggles continue . . .
