The Good 

Quarterback Josh Allen etched his name in the record book yet again with an epic performance. Allen became just the second quarterback in NFL history to have 300+ passing yards, 4+ touchdown passes, 1 rushing touchdown, and a perfect 158.3 passer rating in a single game. In addition, Allen completed 83% of his passes with as many incompletions as touchdown passes (4). Stefon Diggs had yet another break out game with 6 receptions for 120 yards and 3 touchdowns. Sean McDermott is the mastermind behind a physical, aggressive, here, and attacking defense that held Miami to jus 20 points. The defense under McDermott is even better than it was under Leslie Frazier. 

The Bad

Running back James Cook had a game of highs and lows, particularly on the ground. Cook had 12 carries for just 29 yards, an abysmal 2.4 yards per carry average, but he did have a touchdown. The Bills’ secondary got pretty beat up, losing both Christian Benford and Micah Hyde for a time. Look for Dane Jackson to start at cornerback opposite Christian Benford and for Kaiir Elam to be active for the first time time this season against the Jaguars. 

The Ugly ‘

Cornerback Tre’Davious White suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon and will be out for the rest of the season. White has missed significant time the past two seasons recovering from a torn ACL. It’s time for the NFL to do away with dangerous synthetic playing surfaces in favor of natural grass. Data has shown a significantly greater risk of suffering a non-contact injury on turf than on grass. The rate of these types of injuries is 48% on turf and 35% on grass. 

In Case You Missed It 

Safety Damar Hamlin was active for the first time this season on Sunday and saw action on special teams. Edge rusher Von Miller is expected to return to the practice field on Wednesday, but a return date to game action is still unknown.The Bills travel to London, England this week to play the Jaguars Sunday morning at Tottenham Hotspur stadium. 

What to Watch: Bills v. Jaguars Sunday 9:30 AM ET NFL Network
