Josh Allen: I don’t think many teams can keep up with all of our receivers

Getty Images

Bills quarterback Josh Allen has always has a strong arm. Now he has a group of receivers who can beat cornerbacks downfield to catch Allen’s deep balls.

Allen’s receivers all made big plays in Sunday’s win over the Dolphins. Stefon Diggs averaged 19.1 yards a catch on eight catches. John Brown averaged 20.5 yards a catch on four catches. Cole Beasley averaged 14 yards a catch on five catches. Isaiah McKenzie averaged 23.5 yards a catch on two catches. Allen said he doesn’t know if there’s a secondary that can hold all his receivers in check.

“We believe and we trust our guys outside,” Allen said, via the Buffalo News. “I don’t think there’s many teams that can keep up with all of them. That was just what was happening and what was working early on, and we just kept going back to it and had some success.”

The Bills’ offense hasn’t looked this good in many years. It won’t be easy for any team to cover all those receivers downfield.

  1. Bills are a team that’s easy to like. As a fan of the NFL it is refreshing to see them in the playoffs and I hope they make it again this year

    Will eventually play a not awful football team too.

    Funny how the Pats didn’t have to apologize for playing the dolphins and winning yet the Bills do

  3. The Bills offense with Allen seems to have turned a corner, but I think we do have to consider the strong possibility that the Jets and Dolphins are both terrible.

  4. Translation – “The Jets and Dolphins can’t keep up with our receivers.” It gets tougher from here with the Rams coming to town. We’ll see…but the Bills are an easy team to pull for.

  5. LOL so we’ve moved on from “Josh Allen is inaccurate and a bust” to “Play some good teams”?

    When was the last time YOUR QB put up 400+ yards and 4 TD’s 0 INT’s, bad team or not?

  6. The Bill’s played a Miami team that Adam Gase had turned into the worst team in football and is now recovering from that. They also played the Jets whom Adam Gase currently turned into the worst team in footbal. Dont let your head swell too much Josh. The other 30 teams havent been ruined by the worst coach in football.

  7. Even dinged up, the Dolphins have a solid secondary. Lest we forget. And the Bills made mincemeat of them. For what it’s worth. They weren’t playing against hacks, regardless of the quality of the rest of the team

    Maybe because the Pays won a lot and beat a lot of good teams? The proof is in the pudding. Not a Pays fan though.

  9. So many thought Allen would regress this year. He works too hard for that, and Beane has done an amazing job of surrounding him w/ talent.

    You really have to go back to the ’90’s for a Bills offense that was this potent, and a team this balanced.

    Man, that was a long wait. Fun now, though. It’s going to be a legit fight for the division this year.

    I guess you missed the last 15 years of posts on here saying the Pats always play an easy schedule.

  11. I’m tired of the “you haven’t played anyone” argument! People kept saying that last year “well we’ll see when you play the Cowboys on Thanksgiving”…and then the Bills win and get no credit (just that the Cowboys LOST the game). “We’ll see when you go into Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football” and then the Bills win and get no credit. It’s a playoff team with a ton of talent that has started 2-0 yet again. I’ve been waiting a whole YEAR for seeing them get some credit. A whole YEAR of people saying “well we’ll see NEXT week”…it’s now been 18 weeks!!

    They beat one team last year with a winning record, the Titans….both Dallas and Pitts were 8-8 teams that didnt make the playoffs….Pitts had a scrub QB playing.

    Right or wrong, they are going to get questioned until they beat a couple of good teams….Jets/Dolphins are 0-4 and the Jets look like one of the worst in the league.

    Next 4 are Rams, Raiders, Titans, and KC…..right now, those teams have not lost a game yet. I imagine if they go 3-1 against that bunch, people will not be questioning them at all anymore.

  13. Don’t forget that Ryan Fitzpatrick had a couple of years for the Bills where he played lights out for a few games at the beginning of the season. Parlayed one into a big contract. They ended up tanking and out of the playoffs in each. I truly hope that does not happen to the Bills this year.

  14. Every team seems to be a good team until the Bills beat them.
    Then, all of a sudden, that team sucks.
    So much for people talking up the “Much Improved” Dolphins. And the “Always Tough” Jets Defense orchestrated by the Mastermind Greg Williams.

    Keep sleeping on the Bills, you’ll be eating a nice serving of crow when, “Next Week” is over.

  15. No matter how you cut it, the Bills have become an exciting team to watch. That’s why whenever they are on national TV, TV ratings are up. People are tired of seeing the same old teams on TV. Bills mafia is everywhere. And who doesn’t like the red, white and blue uniforms?? Should be new America’s Team!

  18. Not a Bills fan here (Hell, not a fan of any team!) but the Bills are easy to root for. I don’t think Bills fans need to be all worked up by the negative comments. As they say, the proof is in the pudding. Just let your team do its thing and see how the team progresses. It is heartening to see how Josh Allen, who has a rocket arm, was willing to work on the subtle things in quarterbacking such as consistent short yardage completions started even the previous season. His hard work seems to pay off. Having raw talent is one thing but the willingness to hone the craft and putting in the time and work is another. He’s gonna do fine.

    The Dolphins kept it a 3pt game until the mid 4th vs the Patriots and held Newton to 155yds 0 TD’s in the air… but I haven’t heard anyone criticize the Pats for an easy opponent… Yet that was their only win.

  20. “they barely beat miami and got abused by them as well

    this uncomfortable and phony propping up of buffalo is awakward to watch”

    You said the Bills would lose badly to Miami.

    And I noticed you don’t have a comment on Allen this week. You saw he had 400 yards, 4 TD’s and no turnovers, right?

    Oh, and the Pats are in 2nd place, btw.

  21. Bills had a very easy schedule last season – including jets and dolphins – yet Allen never threw for 300+. This season, he throws for his first 300 yard game in week 1 and then 400 in week 2. Yes, dolphins and jets are bad teams but this is SIGNIFICANT improvement, particularly in areas that many detractors said could not be improved on (I.e. accuracy). There is no denying Allen has turned a corner through 2 weeks. I have never witnessed an NFL QB in the modern era grow so much from year to year as Josh Allen.

  22. Josh is playing awesome, he is my fantasy QB and I received over 40 points this week. But just as a few people pointed out, to truly know know how good you are, you have to play playoff caliber teams. Miami and the Jets aren’t those teams. Time will tell.

  23. The Dolphins kept it a 3pt game until the mid 4th vs the Patriots and held Newton to 155yds 0 TD’s in the air… but I haven’t heard anyone criticize the Pats for an easy opponent… Yet that was their only win.

    ___

    Please go back and read the comments under Patriots beat Dolphins 21-11 in Cam Newton’s debut from September 13….then tell me no one said anything about the Dolphins being bad….literally tons of comments about how Fitz was terrible and how the dolphins are bad all over that thread.

  24. I’d quit worrying about credit…if they’re legit, it’ll come around in due time. And if they’re not, then you save yourself from looking silly crying about credit for beating chumps. When you’ve been bad or mediocre as long as the Bills, you don’t get the benefit of the doubt. I say this as a Bills fan. As McDermott would say, earn it. And I’d say the league has shown them reasonable respect by giving them a decent handful of prime-time games already…

  25. Diggs won’t have a kid playing his first game covering him. Josh will be facing some of the best teams very soon. Then come back and tell us how good you are. Bill

    Why the desperation to have a chip on your shoulder? Previous poster cancerman2020 laid it out perfectly…next 4 are against the LAR, Raiders, Titans and Chiefs. Beat them or even go 2-2 and it will go a long way toward people taking the Bills more seriously. But just beating the Jets and Dolphins (who NO ONE in their right mind was pumping up the way you’re claiming) isn’t going to move the needle for most people. Just how it is.

    Will do, thanks Bill.

  29. Bills have looked good so far, Ravens have a pretty good secondary with Humphrey, Peters and Smith so that would be a good matchup. pats with Gilmore, Bethel and McCourty would be a good matchup as well. Also, the Chargers and Steelers.

  30. “you did. Your supposed scary did got absolute dusted for 28 points by miami

    LOL

    Are you one of those guys who does the “Team x beat team y by 7, and team y lost to team w by 14, so team w will beat team y by 21?

    Bills were missing their starting linebackers, and Miami scored a TD in garbage time.

    And the Pats D was like a turnstile against Seattle. They looked terrible.

    I guess by your logic, Allen is WAY better than Cam: 400 yards compared to 150.

    Oh – and a win is a win. You said Buffalo would lose. Badly. Check AFCE standings for clarification.

  31. Allen looks way better than he has in the past, and with all of these weapons they now have they look like real contenders. Next 4 weeks slate should be good TV.

    Yeah… Seattle’s Defense will probably land 2 of your WR’s on Injured Reserve, Josh…
    —————-
    Seattle has a Defense? I’m confused as to what I was watching Sunday night. Legion of Blah?

  33. Bills will obviously lose a game or two as the season progresses. But for once I won’t have to worry about the offense doing its part. Buffalos defense has become vulnerable without their starting LBs and offenses are picking on Levi Wallace. Hopefully Milano and Edmunds get healthy quick. I’d hate to come here after Josh goes 32/40 315 2 TDS but loses 35-31. SEE, I TOLD YOU HE STINKS!

  34. As a life long Bills fan, one that’s optimistic but realistic – it’s been a good start. There are some things to clean up and it would be nice to see them out the nail in the casket instead of letting teams linger, but win lose or draw the next month of games is exciting to see where they stack up against some tough and dynamic teams

  35. Did these guys all have excuses too?? He joins a pretty exclusive list that includes two surefire Hall of Fame quarterbacks in Peyton Manning and Tom Brady as well as Patrick Mahomes, a quarterback with a Hall of Fame resume early in his career.

    700+ passing yards, 6+ TDs, 0 INTs, first two weeks of a season:
    Peyton Manning, 2013
    Tom Brady, 2015
    Patrick Mahomes, 2019
    Josh Allen, 2020

  36. You have played the Jets and Miami. Calm down son. IF FLores made better play goals on the 1st and goal from the 3, the Bills lose the game……

  37. Hey Allen. You’ve done quite well passing the ball. Get back to us when you play a decent team.

    The Bills played the Jets and Miami, arguably two of the worst teams in the NFL.

  38. Miami allowed 51 points in 2 games…and they played a Brady-less New England and Buffalo.

    The point is that Miami doesn’t have a good defense, which is a big reason why Allen looked so good.

  39. I can’t help but think of a young Brett Favre. He has so much to love and hate at the same time. One minute it’s like WOW this guy is a boss, and then its like “no more rocket balls please.” In the end I think it is a win for Buffalo and they will win a lot of games.

    Umm, NE confrolled the game. lmao

    eye test, not box score

  41. Last season I thought John Brown was one of the most underrated receivers in the NFL. He’s really good. They needed a speedy receiver who runs good routes to complement him and they now have that guy in Diggs. Beasley is a great slot receiver and rookie Gabriel Davis made a beautiful diving TD catch last Sunday. Their receiving corp is one of the best in the NFL; it doesn’t matter who they play, they are talented. If they don’t unseat New England from their AFC East throne this season, there are no excuses. They first play each other November 1st in Buffalo.

  42. I love it, sprouting off before playing the game. Allen just pretty much guaranteed his team gets stymied this week. Ramsey will blanket Diggs and the rest of the Rams secondary will take away Brown. Rule #1… don’t give the other team any bulletin board material!

    That’s fine Bill, you’d expect #1 CB on #1 WR. But who’s covering Brown who is a borderline #1 in his own right and Beasley who’s always open. Jalen can’t cover them all. They’re not stopping the Bills from putting up 21+, the question is can they outscore the Rams considering the Bills D is missing crucial pieces in the middle. Miami never would’ve 28 and Gesecki never would’ve had a career day if Milano and Edmunds were playing. No excuses though, every team suffers injuries and has to adjust. Bills may lose but it’ll be a good game no doubt.

    Allen took it to Ramsey as a Jaguar with Kelvin Benjamin… Kelvin 1/2 speed Benjamin! It’s not Ramsey I’m worried about… It’s the Rams Defensive line. Too much pressure can cause hurried throws and hurried throws become errant and get intercepted.

    The Dolphins are not terrible and will win a good amount of football games this year. The Jets however…

    The rest of the Rams secondary with take away Brown? As if it was just that simple to defend an empty backfield set with 4 WR’s on the field.

  47. The funniest thing I ever heard. New England controlled the game at 14 11. Lmao. Man some people keep contradicting themselves and it’s becoming way too funny.
