The 2018 season has been a rough one for the Bills and the first-round quarterback. Allen’s rookie season started off poorly, and before he could find any rhythm, he missed a month with an UCL injury.

Finally, we’re seeing signs of a future Buffalo can get excited about. Allen’s mobility led to a career-high 135 rushing yards in Week 13 and while he threw two interceptions in the 21-17 loss, he also suffered unfortunate luck when Charles Clay dropped a game-winning touchdown.


Buffalo needs to improve its offensive line and must surround Allen with talented wide receivers. Given the circumstances, Allen is flashing enough potential to give the fan base more confidence about his future as the franchise quarterback.
