All it took was 30 minutes for Josh Allen to prove that he’s ready for the regular season, and based on how he played Saturday afternoon, 2021 might look a whole lot like 2020 for Allen and the Buffalo Bills’ electrifying offense.
The only thing hotter than the blazing summer sun beating down at Highmark Stadium was the Bills’ star quarterback. Making his preseason debut, Allen completed his first nine passes against the Green Bay Packers and ultimately finished 20-of-26 for 194 yards and two touchdowns in two quarters of work.
Allen led the Bills to a 13-0 halftime lead and then took the rest of the day off. Jake Fromm and Davis Webb handled the quarterbacking in the second half as the Bills finished off a 19-0 victory.
Coach Sean McDermott wasn’t exactly beaming at halftime about the general performance of the team, saying, “Overall we were sloppy. Sloppy with penalties, sloppy with dropped passes, not getting off blocks. We can’t do that.”
